No, indeed: we don't think Hank done it this way. At least we're pretty certain Hank never played a museum. But as Jay Farrar put it, Remis Auditorium was a nice temporary respite from beer-and-cigs rock clubs (the following night they completed their mini-tour of Bay State art halls by taking a gig at MassMOCA).
In any case, the surroundings did little to dampen the enthusiasm of either band or audience -- by set's end, Farrar was blasting away on electric guitar (at a volume that must've shaken up the El Grecos), and fans stumbled out the West gate sporting shit-eating grins, shaking their heads with glee.
If you missed it, above we present a pair of tunes off Son Volt's latest, The Search.
