Two Nights of mewithoutYou and Kevin DevineAugust 15th, 2012
Brothers Aaron (vocals and guitar) and Michael (guitar and vocals) Weiss were already in one band, the Operation, when they started another one to try out a different kind of music. That project eventually became known as mewithoutYou (above, doing “February 1878”). And that different kind of music is punk-tinged experimental structures, spoken word and plenty of guitar. Now a four-piece, with Greg Jehanian (bass) and Rickie Mazzotta (drums), the Philly-based often travels with more musicians on tour. And with the release of their fifth LP, Ten Stories—which MTV calls “a truly great album”—mewithoutYou is out on the road with NYC’s own Kevin Devine (below, playing “I Used to Be Someone”), he of the deep musical repertoire. See them tomorrow at Music Hall of Williamsburg and on Friday at The Bowery Ballroom.
