Maserati: September 28, 2009 Bowery Ballroom – Flac and MP3 Downloads

September 29, 2009

[still from this video]

Acidjack reports:
“Athens, GA’s Maserati came to the Bowery Ballroom with the unenviable task of opening for epic Japanese instrumental rockers Mono, on a rainy Monday evening following Yom Kippur. Though not exactly one of the busiest nights of the year in New York City, this crowd knew what was up, packing most of the floor for Maserati’s set. Their 45-minute set, culled from several of their albums including their latest, the odds-and-ends collection Passages, demonstrated why their popularity has continued to surge as a live band, with drummer Jerry Fuchs leading the way with his propulsive work on the kit. Unlike Mono, whose set thrived on tension and release, Maserati’s set remained almost completely in high gear, perhaps owing to the shorter time slot.”

Acidjack recorded this set from an optimal spot in the venue, with the mics mounted on a pole clamped to the balcony post and extended almost directly in front of the soundboard. The house mix was excellent, and that is reflected in this recording. Enjoy!

    I got this picture of the setlist from the show, I think Ben’s is accurate though.

    No, Ben’s set list is not correct. The set list photo from comment #4 is correct.

    It appears that the first song from the set is missing: “No More Sages.” Second song (the first MP3 here) is definitely “12/16.”

    The show is complete. I don’t think they played No More Sages… or if they did, the setlist is wrong.

    I remember them talking about skipping the first song before the show, so yeah, I think they skipped No More Sages.

    OK, that makes sense. I am not an expert on their catalog by any means, but I’ve heard “No More Sages” and am pretty sure it wasn’t played. Curious if they played it the next night – I was supposed to attend but couldn’t make it..

    hey, apologies for the tracking mistake. I always mix up 12/16 and System due to the similar intros

    They did play No More Sages. They opened with it.

    RIP Jerry Fuchs. I am glad i got to see him play this show, one of the most incredible drummers i had ever seen.

    This show absolutely rules in every way. Jerry Fuchs was a titan of the drumkit. His kind will never walk the earth again. RIP Jerry!
