Mission of Burma @ Maxwell's - 7/28/13
Mission of Burma @ Maxwell's - 7/28/2013

Boston indie rock vets Mission of Burma, who have played Hoboken rock club Maxwell's many times over the years, returned on Sunday (7/28) for their last two shows at the venue (early and late). Like many of the bands playing one (or two, or three) last shows at the venue, the MoB guys had some kind stuff to say about Maxwell's on stage. Boston Globe reports:

"It was always such a welcoming place for Boston bands," said Burma bassist Clint Conley, who thinks MOB played at Maxwell's three times between 1979-1983. "It was a place for dedicated listeners. You'd play a big room in New York, like Danceteria, and that was a tremendous honor, but it was filled with trendy scenesters. You'd play Maxwell's and the people were there to hear you." He said the experience was no different Sunday. "There's no question love was in the room," said Conley. "Love was on stage, blasting at 110 decibels, and love was in the audience."
NJ.com adds that on stage Conley said, ""We liked coming here because this was always a safe place for weirdos."

We caught the late show (Moby caught one too), and pictures from that show, including one of the setlist, are in this post.

Great shows, both of them. Great send-off to Maxwell's.

Looks like a very boring event. And so many old people.

Great record!!! Note: this upload isn't from the original vinyl LP, this is the Matador CD re-issue in 2008, the last 4 tracks are bonus tracks.

This is so great. Reminds you how much work bands used to put into making music. These days it's just too easy and it mostly shows except when a band really works at it. Music like Mission of Burma comes out of the speakers.
