Animal Collective – rained out

June 1, 2007

Well, the concert was not rained out, but my taping was.  At about 7:30 pm, about a half hour before they were to play, it was raining pretty steadily, and there was no place to set up my equipment under any cover.  Unfortunately, I can not risk water damage to my recording rig, and I was forced to lug it all home.

The Seaport was absolutely jammed with people, and with the rain, the humidity, and the unworkable crowd, I can’t imagine that it was a particularly enjoyable experience.  I’m sorry to have missed AC, and of course missed recording them, but the outside concerts are always risky ventures.

I am going to try to add a new recording date on Sunday, and will update the site on upcoming outings.

    As someone who went through the whole thing, I hate to say but your absolutely right. The experience was absolutely miserable. The humidity and lack of breathing room made the show impossible to concentrate on. Though at least I’m tall enough to have been able to see above the heads of most of the people there

    I did record the concert, but only with a very simple setup. B/C quality.

    Hey newbie, do you have the recording available?

    As for a review of the show, I thought it was excellent. The rain and humidity wasn’t really that bad, and I got pretty close. They sounded completely different from their recorded stuff, much louder and more energetic.
