Cass McCombs Live at Joe's Pub 7-27-09

The barefoot Cass McCombs took the stage with his good looking band at Joe's Pub this Monday, putting on an excellent show promoting his new record entitled Catacombs. The band ripped through a tight set of tunes off the new LP with sprinklings of stuff from Dropping The Writ and PREfection. I was hoping for an back ground singer appearance by actress Karen Black on his sexy new tune "Dreams Come True Girl." Midway through the show he shed his scorpion jean jacket and he and the band rocked on. For the final tune he brought on stage opener Mike Bones and he and the back rocked out a tune each member taking a few bars to solo on. I didn't get all the names of the band members but he did mention Andy Macleod was on drums and Melanie Moser on keyboards and background vocals, the bassist and second guitarist were really great too. He will return to Brooklyn this coming Saturday Aug 1 to play Union Hall and the band has some great opening slots with Band of Horses out west. Be sure to catch a show.
