On Monday, November 6th, tUnE-yArDs announced a last minute show that would take place the very next night at Baby's All Right, a venue with a capacity of 280 people. The band previewed songs from their upcoming release, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, which will be released on January 19, 2018.
Brooklyn rapper Miss Eaves opened the show and was wrapping up her string of tour dates with tUnE-yArDs. I was lucky enough to see Eaves perform at Muchmore's in the past (her record release show for Black Valley was held there) and it was wonderful to see her play for a crowded room with people who were unfamiliar with her smart, feminist, and funny rap songs and experiencing them for the first time.
This was my second time seeing Merrill Garbus' band live (I attended their Webster Hall show three years ago) and I was thankful to catch them in a much more intimate setting. Garbus remarked they were getting the kinks out of their new material but it sounded as if all rough edges were smoothed out before this performance.
I photographed both bands for the above gallery. If you missed the sold out Baby's All Right show, don't fret because tUnE-yArDs will return to Brooklyn in March for a show at a much larger venue, Brooklyn Steel.
