Here We Go Magic / Christopher Bear Trio @ Baby's All Right - 12/9/13
Here We Go Magic
Chris Bear Trio

Luke Temple is in the middle of his December residency at Union Pool, but last night (12/9) he teamed back up with his band Here We Go Magic to headline a show at Brooklyn's new-ish Baby's All Right. Opening the show was a trio set from Grizzly Bear drummer Christopher Bear with Aaraon Arntz (who tours as a live member of Grizzly Bear) and Benjamin Campbell, who also played last week's installment of Luke's residency, plus a set from guitar/drum machine/vocal loop one-man-band Nightlands (aka War On Drugs/Sharon Van Etten collaborator Dave Hartley). Members of Caveman were also DJing in the venue's front room. Pictures of the show are in this post.

Luke Temple's Union Pool residency continues tonight (12/10) with Daniel Carter/Austin Vaughn, Sam Owens (of Celestial Shore), and "Delicate" Steve Marion. Tickets are still available.

UPDATE: Here We Go Magic also play an intimate show at Silent Barn on Sunday (12/15) with Celestial Shore, Les Bonhommes, and Ron Shalom/Austin Vaughn.

would have been nice to hear new Hear We Go Magic material; instead, the set was entirely songs from their previous record from last year.

Keep milkin that chicken i guess

Oh shit! A band played songs live that were released already?! WTF??? No one EVER does this!!!! I'm gonna get mad about it on the internet!!!

Chris Bear's trio was excellent! Sun Ra-esque, avant tunes with strong melodies and some real cool noise making!

10:48 it's more like this band has been playing the same exact set for way too long now, and it's not like they have any new fans coming through the door that haven't heard them yet (they've played NYC about 6x-8x since the album came out).

I think there's a reasonable expectation that said band would release some new music already, or hell, stop touring otherwise, because, what's the point really? Fans are going for new stuff, not to hear the same thing they've heard at a bunch of shows already.

This is my second time seeing them and I would go again! Rarely do I feel that way about bands/concerts. They really jam and did change up the songs a bit. Yes, it would be great to have a new album from them!
