    Letters To Cleo, the Boston based band played to a packed house in New York’s Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday night. This mini tour of five shows include single dates in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York, and what’s billed as they’re annual homecoming shows in Boston Friday and Saturday, November 16 & 17. Letters To Cleo, the classic 90’s alt-rockers regrouped for the 25th anniversary of their classic album “Aurora Gory Alice.”  The band consists of Kay Hanley – lead vocals Greg McKenna – guitar Michael Eisenstein – guitar Stacy Jones – drums.

    Stacy Jones was on double duty as the drummer and also lead singer/guitarist for the phenomenal opening band, American Hi-Fi.

    The band played a rousing set of 18 songs, including “Aurora Gory Alice,” and two from the film10 Things I Hate About You, “I Want You To Want Me” originally performed by Cheap Trick, and “Cruel To Be Kind” the Nick Lowe & Ian Gomm song originally performed by Rockpile.  The fun show lasted about 90 minutes with the crowd into the set from the first note to the last encore. This is the second year in a row that Letters To Cleo are regrouping and play a few shows before Thanksgiving.  Hopefully, they’ll make this an annual reunion and even more shows in the future.  As of this writing, the two Boston shows aren’t sold out.  If you’re in the Boston area this weekend and want to see a great show with two awesome bands, be sure to attend.

    LETTERS TO CLEO will be playing a two night stand at the Paradise Rock Club NOV 16 and 17 for their second annual home coming shows.   TICKETS NOV 16   TICKETS NOV 17
