Out: The Chris North Dream Quartet help christen the Haven in Jamaica Plain
By LIZ PELLY | May 6, 2011
On April 20, amid the Haven’s antler chandeliers and woodsy ambiance, the Quartet offered a long set that included amped-up versions of the three minimal home recordings posted on Bandcamp late last year. (“The Architects of Love and Forgiveness” is the one to download.) They played several songs from the Points North’s 2009 release I Saw Across the Sound, and some covers, among them their earnest take on Dylan’s “Girl from North Country” and a rendition of “Stone” by Whitehaus friends the Woodrow Wilsons. Their performance was prefaced by sets from BMP-nominated Mount Peru on April 13, Whitehaus staple Morgan Shaker on April 20, and a new-ish twangy JP folk trio Welcome Home on the closing night, April 27.
The residency also celebrated the Haven’s first month with a music license: as a cool bar in JP with free, local shows, it’s now filling a gap in the Boston rock-venue-scape. And it’s getting more of the Chris North Dream Quartet: the band will be playing there on the last Thursday of each month. What’s more, Chris North’s new album, The Story of My Light, is due June 9.
