Acidjack reports:
Brooklyn’s Bear In Heaven are increasingly looking like a band that is going places. After their sold out show at Mercury Lounge in January it was starting to look like the Pitchfork-acclaimed band was on its way to being the next big thing. Watching the crowd swell well beyond fire-hazard capacity at Glasslands last night, it is safe to say that is true. Every inch of the venue was stuffed with partiers and fans waiting to see this band open for Secret Machines, even though it was clear that they could easily have been the headliner. As was the case at Mercury, the band’s bass-driven sound caused some sound problems early on, but once that cleared up, fans seemed to get the point. The band’s set drew entirely from their recent Beast Rest Forth Mouth, including a typically rousing rendition of “Lovesick Teenager” that got the crowd moving.

I recorded this set from a clamp to the floor of the balcony, directly in front of the stacks. Although the difficulties in the house mix are evident in the first few songs, I have cleaned the sound up to make an excellent mix. Enjoy!”

    I was standing next to the sound booth and the poor soundguy couldn’t figure out where the feedback was coming from on the first 2 songs. Once he finally figured out what was wrong everything got way better.
