The Feelies were unbelievably tight at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, N.J., last night. They started almost on the dot of 9:30 (so if you’re going tonight, don’t be late or you’ll get stuck in the back of the room)  and played two solid sets, plus FOUR encores.

Since they reunited last year, the New Jersey quintet has gotten better and better, to the point that they as confident and assured as they did in their heyday. What an amazing night!

I was a little to far back to get many good shots, but here are some for those who couldn’t make it. I’ll get there earlier tonight and come back with better-quality images for tomorrow’s post.

P.S. Stanley Demeski’s daughter is a blogger. She wrote this about last year’s reunion show. I hope she writes about this years!
