Blitzen Trapper: February 28, 2009 Music Hall – Flac and MP3 Downloads

The second of Blitzen Trapper‘s two sold-out NYC shows was at the Music Hall of Williamsburg last Saturday. Just as they had on Friday, the band came on strong and never let up. Saturday’s set was however more playful, stretched to three encores and about ten minutes longer, and contains a neat Gram Parsons cover.

We are fortunate to offer the first recording to this site captured by nyctaper correspondent “acidjack”. He took a completely different approach to the Bowery recording — standing in the middle of the crowd on the floor. This recording is a nice companion the Friday show since it has a completely different feel with an upfront clarity and direct in-your-face vibe. While the boisterous Saturday night crowd can be chatty and jerky at times, this recording has a you-were-there quality that makes it an excellent listen. Enjoy!

    This was such a great show, thanks for recording. The name of the Gram Parson’s – well technically it’s a Flying Burrito Brothers song – is Christine’s Tune.
