With much thanks to Charlie Hughes, all five sets of Bmore Musically Informed's first curated show were recorded in full. I'll be posting as much audio as I can over the next week or so, but today I have the evening's closers, Arbouretum.
This was a pretty amazing set, as they pumped out tracks from nearly every release of their catalog. The fact that this is likely the last set to ever be played at the G Spot, which has been in Baltimore for ten years, makes it all the more special. This will also be the last time they play with drummer Daniel Franz for awhile, as they've updated their lineup while he's off touring with Beach House.
Opening with "Flood of Floods" off of Kale (their split record with Pontiak) was a treat, but you simply can't top the way this set was closed out. Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak joined the band on stage to play Neil Young's "When You Dance I Can Really Love". Stream that above, and download the entire set below.
