Cymbals Eat Guitars headlined the Showpaper/ToddP/Pitchfork benefit at Market Hotel last Saturday and delivered a set of their indie power-pop with the same tension-release style that propels their outstanding debut album Why There Are Mountains. The band dealt effortlessly and with good humor to a series of technical problems, and performed the songs with the same intensity that has gathered them a plethora of rave reviews in this last year. CEG opened the set with highlight and song of the year contender “And The Hazy Sea”, which features lead singer/guitarist Joseph D’Agostino’s spine-tingling scream near the song’s end.

We recorded this set in the same location as the previous two sets from this show, and worked through the technical problems throughout. The sound quality is exceptional under the circumstances. Enjoy!
