Hamilton Leithauser: February 20, 2011 Cameo Gallery (Noncerts 1) – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

May 31, 2011

The first show in what promises to be a long-running charity series called Noncerts took place in the end of February at the Cameo Gallery. The main purpose of Noncerts is to purchase a piano for every public school in Brooklyn, and all proceeds from the events go towards that goal. The first night featured performances from Noncerts founder Dave Godowsky, superb songwriter David Dondero, Ween leader Gene Ween, and the lead singer of The Walkmen Hamilton Leithauser. Hamilton’s set threw us for a bit of a loop — but in a good way. Instead of solo Walkmen numbers, the entire Leithauser set consisted of fairly obscure but brilliant covers, which included nyctaper-favorite Cass McCombs (“Don’t Vote”), and DC political punk band Weird War (stream “See About Me” below) . We also recorded the second Noncerts show in the end of April, and hope to offer sets from that night soon.

I recorded this set with the Neumanns mounted at the front of the sound booth and mixed with an excellent soundboard feed. The sound quality of this set is superb. Enjoy!
