After Ponytail‘s excellent set at Mercury Lounge on Sunday night, we experienced a first for nyctaper — our own personal handwritten setlist. We spoke at length with guitarist Ken Seeno, who was so refreshingly enthusiastic about our recordings and our support of the band that he grabbed a cocktail napkin and a pen and wrote out a setlist (see below) and left us with huge smile. This is the kind of positive energy that emanates from the stage when Ponytail unleashes its sonic overdrive and all four instruments coalesce as one, as Sunday night’s set was thirty-four minutes of pure musical exuberance.

We recorded from our standard location in this venue, at the right and slightly in front of the soundboard booth. The sound quality in the venue was outstanding as the Mercury board was manned by an experienced pro technician. We raised the pole to maximum length and avoided all crowd noise with a direct line to the speakers. We are extremely pleased with the quality of this recording. Enjoy!
