Last Tuesday at Bell House was not just the first “wheel spin” Yo La Tengo show ever in NYC, it was also the CD release show from YLT friends and collaborators Antietam. In fact, Antietam was the headlining band at Yo La Tengo’s first-ever show at Maxwell’s in 1984. The latest Antietam release Tenth Life is their eighth studio album and first since 2008’s Opus Mixtum. At the Bell House, Antietam performed the entire album Tenth Life from start to finish, taking only a breather at what would be the end of Side A on the vinyl. The album continues in the same vein as the first CD of the two-disc Opus set (and this 2008 concert), with Tara Key’s aggressive gibson-guitar work out front and propelled by the Tim Harris’s bass and Josh Madell on drums. The no-nonsense approach to songwriting has been an Antietam staple, and Tenth Life is no exception.

I recorded this set with the four microphone rig mounted on a clamp at the front of the soundboard booth. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    THANK YOU! Great show, great album. Antietam has a show and an art/photo opening for Tara in Chicago in a couple of weeks – I highly recommend going if you’re in the area.
