The fourth and final night of the Built to Spill NYC “tour” was a night to jam. BTS seemed relaxed and poised to have some loose fun. Doug spoke often to the crowd and honored a couple of requests — “You Were Right” and “Cars” were audience choices. The most compelling parts of the evening though were the two extended jam segments. “Hindsight” from the new album There Is No Enemy was stretched out with a new instrumental segment, and the show-closing eleven minute “Conventional Wisdom” was perhaps the most intense song performed by the band all week.

We recorded this show from the same location as the previous night. While the vocals were still too low in the mix, the problem is not nearly as pronounced as the recording of the night before. With that caveat, enjoy!
