The Pinhook, Durham
Friday, February 23, 2018
After five long years apart, Midtown Dickens reformed at The Pinhook in Durham to benefit the nonprofit organization Durham For All. In that hiatus, core band members Catherine Edgerton and Kym Register have pursued other creative projects—Register running Loamlands and running The Pinhook, Edgerton growing as a visual artist—but on stage, they clicked as though no time had passed at all.
The Pinhook was sold out as the packed crowd sang along to nearly every song at one point surprising Edgerton who remarked, “You actually remember our records?” The crowd answered the question with the loudest roar of the night. As the set ended the commentary through the crowd was that the reunion couldn’t possibly have been a one-off. Midtown Dickens go together with The Pinhook like peanut butter and jelly—here’s to hoping it won’t be the last time these joyful songs bounce off its walls.
Below are a handful of songs from the Midtown Dickens reunion performance.
