On Friday night, Oneida moved about 50 feet from their rehearsal and recording space and played a late night set at Monster Island Basement. The show had the intimate feel of an open rehearsal and jam session, as the band started the set with four “new jams” — basically untitled works in progress. While the new songs are consistent in sound with recent material, the final untitled number featured a Zep-like riff and definitely veered more towards metal. About halfway through the set, the crowd bounced to “Up With People” as the first familiar song of the show, and continued through the remainder of the set which ended sometime around 2 a.m. The following night, the band moved upstairs for the 6th annual “Brahloween”, but on this Friday show it was the new and intimate that prevailed.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphones mounted on a pole fifteen feet from the stage and mixed with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!
