The Feelies at Maxwell's (05-09-1986 and 05-10-1986)


Time for a tape from my favorite band!

On May 9, 1986, The Feelies treated an eager Maxwell's crowd to two sets of magical tunes!  This Maxwell's gig captures the band at a pivotal point in the career, as the group released their second LP, "The Good Earth" in 1986 - six years after their debut, "Crazy Rhythms."  In the six years between releases, members of the Feelies and their friends would play Maxwell's countless times under several different monikers, including Yung Wu, Speed The Plough, and the Trypes.  1986 also marked the band's big screen debut, as the group (credited as "The Willies), appeared in Jonathan Demme's "Something Wild" in 1986! 

The Feelies are playing BSP Kingston in Kingston, NY this Friday May 11th and World Cafe Live in Philadelhpia this Saturday May 12th.
