Luna

Fri, Nov 17 - 9:00 pm

Luna, the New York-based quartet, were last seen on stage in February 2005. In 2015 they will play their first shows in ten years.

Luna recorded 8 studio albums between 1992 and 2005. The current touring lineup is the exact ’99-’05 group that recorded Luna Live!, Romantica, Close Cover Before Striking, and Rendezvous: Dean Wareham and Sean Eden on guitar, Lee Wall on drums, and Britta Phillips on bass.

At their best, it’s hard to believe there is any other kind of music besides this simple, graceful, chiming chug — the Guardian

One of indie rocks’ most beloved live acts — Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

Dean Wareham has an unlikely quiver of a voice that, for whatever ungodly reason, sounds as if he’s survived something his music alludes to but never gives away — Jerry Stahl

A handful of records and songs that will accompany me forever – Ignacio Julia
