Lake Street Dive at the Wang Theatre Boston

Lake Street Dive last night at the Wang Theatre

Attended yet another in a long list of great shows at the invitation of neighbor and concert buddy Steve Scardino. As usual, he knows how to pick em. (As does Lisa Breslow Thompson who suggested a while back I go see them).

This multi genre, multi talented band has been playing local Boston area clubs and festivals since emerging as a quartet from the New England Conservatory in 2004. Wished I'd jumped on their rapidly expanding band wagon earlier when they were still playing smaller venues. We were near the back of the sold out 3500 seat Wang Theater surrounded by youthful, fanatic, female fans who seemed to know every note of their mostly uplifting songs. Now a quintet with the addition of keyboards, their sound is somewhat hard to define, and ranges from big & bold to quietly beautiful 4 & 5 part harmonies. Steve sums it up well - "blue eyed soul".
