Oakley Hall March 15, 2008 Glasslands – Flac Download

On a night when it seemed as if the rest of the NYC bloggerati were attending the South By Southwest Festival in Texas, we were fortunate to be in South by Southwest Williamsburg to see one of our new favorite bands play at one of our favorite venues. The combination of Brooklyn’s Oakley Hall performing among friends at Brooklyn’s best venue Glasslands Gallery was a sight to behold — it was as if the best of the borough’s musicians had a private party and we were invited.

Oakley Hall worked through a similar setlist to the Knitting Factory show, but added a Dylan cover and re-worked the list for a better flow. The highlights were many, but the set closing run of Rue the Blues, Volume Rambler, and Having Fun Again (with Derek from Awesome Color guesting on guitar) was fearsome and intense.

This recording was made again with the permission of Pat and Jesse from Oakley Hall. We improved on our mix from the last Glasslands recording, capturing just the right balance of soundboard feed and audience microphones. This recording is also a vast improvement over the previous Oakley Hall recording on nyctaper from the Knitting Factory. We are extremely pleased with the results. Enjoy!
