When we normally run into Michael Kane in these parts, it’s serving as frontman of his great, Worcester, Massachusetts-based band Michael Kane and the Morning Afters, whom you’ve probably read about on these pages. However, Kane’s a pretty formidable solo performer as well. As proof, he self-produced a live album consisting of acoustic, gritty renditions of a few MK & the Morning Afters tracks, a couple covers, and even some new material. It was recorded a couple months back at the Tavern At The End Of The World in Charlestown, MA, and you can check it out below.
Michael Kane and the Morning Afters’ last studio album, “Laughing At The Shape I’m In,” was released back in 2017 on State Line Records.
