This week, in fact. Let us revisit, below.
Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey will perform perhaps their most beloved record, 1991’s Mavericks, in its entirety, on Dec. 5 at World Café Live in Philadelphia and then again Dec. 6 at Brooklyn’s Bell House. Although the pair’s records with the dB’s have found almost universal critical acclaim, it is Mavericks— with its Everly Brothers-style harmonies and more acoustic-based timbres — that often tops fans’ playlists. Songs such as “Angels,” “I Know You Will,” “She Was the One,” “Geometry,” and “The Child in You” have become perennial favorites. Joining Peter and Chris on this special night will be guitarist Dave Schramm, who played on the original album and subsequent tour, as well as an ace rhythm section and special guests.
