Last night, the great Baltimore indie duo Wye Oak played at Baltimore’s Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, a local institution, with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra playing behind them. For a band who were playing local warehouse spaces and restaurants just a few years ago, this had to be a very cool experience. (If Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack had Baltimore childhoods anything like mine, they went on field trips to see the BSO at Meyerhoff.) Below, watch video of Wye Oak and the playing “The Tower,” a song from Wye Oak’s 2014 album Shriek.
Can’t wait until the BSO discovers Baltimore club music.
