The PledgeMusic campaign centered around releasing some demos from 1989 sophomore album Earwig, recorded at Cambridge’s Fort Apache Studios a year prior, and among the perks were two private in-studio sessions for those who donated. The first arrived this past Saturday at Q Division in Somerville, where Blake Babies performed for a crowd of roughly 50 in what was their first show in 15 years.
“We had so much fun [Saturday] getting to play for some amazing folks, many of whom traveled to hear and meet us,” the Blake Babies tweeted. “So grateful. More soon!”
The band’s second in-studio session will take place in Evanston, Illinois.
