After playing at The Sinclair in March of this year, the English Shoegazers return for another evening of live Alt-Rock in the Cozy Cambridge, MA venue. Swervedriver took to the stage at roughly 9:45PM after the stage worthy warm-up performances of Boston- based rock band RIBS and Toronto’s Dearly Beloved

Opening with Autodidact from their latest album I Wasn’t Born to Lose You, the Brit rockers owned the evening, churning out classic after classic, such as These Times, Rave Down and Never Lose That Feeling. The band laid heavily into tracks from their new album (Read My Review Here) and graced us with the likes of Last Rites, Setting Sun, For A Day Like Tomorrow and I Wonder. Other than performing in front of a psycadelic themed backdrop, the boys let the music do the talking, with very little theatrical trickery. 

The band returned to the stage at the end of a two-song encore, bringing out Last Train to Satansville and Dual. A great show all around and it was apparent to everyone in attendance that a band can take a lengthy hiatus and come back sounding brand new.
