Some shows are good, some shows are great, and some have the power to simply lift spirits. Rainer Maria brought what can only be described as a feeling of homecoming on Thursday at the Rock & Roll Hotel (even though the band originally formed in Madison, Wisconsin, and reformed together in New York after years of living in various corners of the globe).
Brooklyn emo band Rainer Maria released five studio albums and then apparently called it a day in 2006.

Rainer Maria are currently on tour with a stop at Rock and Roll Hotel on Thursday, Sept. 28.
