Here’s Matthew Connor crooning away upstairs at The Middle East on “Limestone And Yew” from his album Farewell Motel. This was part of his set opening Doom Lover’s Vaudevillian Spectacular.

I had only seen The Shills a couple of times before seeing them open for Spacehog. My band squared off against them in the 2008 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble prelims. Neither of us advanced. I saw them again a couple of years later at a Rock n Romp event. The kids and I enjoyed them. It had been 3 years since our paths last crossed. You’ll forgive me if I wasn’t prepared for what I saw at Great Scott. These guys are playing in a whole new league now. The Shills are impressive.
