Ok, this is a big deal. I mean, it’s a huge deal. The Middle East, for those of you who haven’t been, is one of our best venues here in the Boston area, and even the larger 550-capacity downstairs room is small enough to feel intimate, besides being a really nice place to see live music. It’s a lovely thing, then, that this seminal indie band from the ’90s decided, rather than to play the House of Blues or the Orpheum (either of which they could easily sell out), instead to do three nights at The Middle East. Absolutely awesome.

Andrew W.K. & The Calder Quartet at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, Brookline, MA, Tuesday, September 29, 2009


Arriving 30 minutes before the start time for the first night of Andrew W.K. and The Calder Quartet‘s ‘Piano and Strings’ performance, I figured I would be the first one there, and wondered what sort of turnout there would be for this rather bizarre pairing. Clearly I knew nothing about Mr. W.K.’s massive hardcore fan base, as I stood there dumbfounded, taking in the sight of hundreds of people already in line.
