The Vaselines @ Maxwell’s, Hoboken, NJ – July 9, 2008 (Music Snobbery)
The Vaselines

The Vaselines played Maxwell’s last night.

With their setlist, you pretty much got what you came for, unless you wanted Teenage Superstar. Their set was about 45 minuteslong, focusing on their top songs. Their voices haven’t aged at all, even though I’d like to meet the person who saw them back in the day and remembers how they played. I can’t emphaisze more how unique and special the night was, and then having it be a tribute to the indie rock of 20 years ago. It seems like it could be made today and not feel dated.

Tonight is Southpaw (July 10, 2008). Stevie, Bobby and Richard of Belle & Sebastian are playing as their backing band. Bill also pointed out that UK band The Indelicates are the opener. The Vaselines’ only other US show is the Sub Pop Festival in Seattle this weekend. Video of Nirvana unplugged, and the Maxwell’s setlist, below….
