Travis Hay from Earcandy has done it again, with a great review from a perspective we love on the Brad, Satchel, Hank Khoir, and “Mother Love Bone” reunion show at the Showbox last night. Here’s a tease, and go read the whole thing.
Wednesday’s five-hour, six-band show included sets by Smith’s bands Pigeonhed, Satchel and Brad (which features Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard on guitar) as well as Gossard’s Hank Williams tribute band the Hank Khoir. However, as great as those sets were – especially the powerful and funky slab of songs by Brad and the rare Pigeonhed appearance – they weren’t the evening’s highlight. The highlight of the night came during the show’s final hour when Smith fronted seminal grunge groups Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone, taking the place of the deceased Andy Wood who died in 1990.
Two Feet Thick had some troops on the ground, and we hope to provide coverage of this amazing event.
