The Shivereens - Crescent Ballroom - 1/7/13

It feels as though about once a month the Crescent Ballroom puts on a free show that could make you think, "Are you sure we weren't supposed to pay for this?" And January 7 was definitely one of those nights. The evening kicked off at 8 with D.G. Scherrer backed up by The Haymarket Squares, which was followed by The SunPunchers before the Shivereens and Sister Lip came on to close out the night.

"I take a little bit of personal pride in this evening because I booked it," said Square bassist and Shivereens lead singer Marc Oxborrow, but honestly it seemed like his favorite accomplishment of the night was playing in the backup band for D.G. Scherrer. "This was a fucking amazing night for me because I really admire Daryl's songwriting and singing. so the opportunity to like be in his band was amazing," he said.
