Luna – The Casbah, San Diego – Dec. 29, 2015

Luna 2

The reunited Luna played to a sold out and enthusiastic crowd on this night at the Casbah.  The lineup consisted of hubby/wife duo of Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, longtime guitarist Sean Eden, and drummer Lee Wall.

The 16 song set was comprised mostly of songs from two earlier albums:Penthouse and Bewitched; as well as several from their last record.Rendezvous.  I had never seen Luna before but I’m glad I caught them this time around.  The band was really tight as they seemed to play their melodic pop/rock effortlessly.  The band’s appreciation of the Velvet Underground was apparent in many songs, especially on the closer to the main set, “Friendly Advice”.

After a short break Luna returned to play “23 Minutes in Brussels” off of the 1995 album Penthouse and then launched into a ragged indie rock version of the George McCrae disco classic, “Rock Your Body”.  [You can catch a clip of this HERE – I did not take this video but whoever did must have been standing only a few feet from me].
