John Maus and Nick Nicely live at Brighton Music Hall

Editor’s Note: If there was ever a place to lose yourself on a Tuesday night and then find yourself smashed into a million pieces across the room an hour or so later, it’s at a John Maus live performance. The emotive experimental-pop musician, composer, singer, songwriter, and academic brought a one-man frenzy to Brighton Music Hall last night (February 5), filling the Allston venue with the type of kinetic energy that was quickly absorbed and empowered by the lively crowd in front of him. Maus is back in town not only showing off last year’s layered Addendum LP, but also songs from a synth-pop catalog that dates back to the mid-aughts, all wrapped nicely in a new six-album box set. Ben Stas was in room given the daunting task of taking still images of a very un-still performance, and you can view his full gallery below, which also includes a look at the opener, acclaimed veteran psych-pop outsider Nick Nicely. That’s some Tuesday on the corner of Harvard and Brighton avenues.
