Oneida has completed the multi-year project called Thank Your Parents — a three album musical endeavor meant to represent the vast musical expressions for which this band is capable. This past weekend, the Parents trilogy was celebrated with a three-day long performance which encompassed on Friday the performance of the first two records of the trilogy, Preteen Weaponry and Rated O. Saturday was dedicated to a full day of ocropolis-like improvisational pieces replete with guest appearances, and Sunday was the daybreak complete play of 2011’s final piece Absolute II. Friday night’s show began with the most controlled set of the weekend — a faithful run through the first part of the trilogy, 2008’s Preteen Weaponry. That year we recorded one of the few complete performances of the album at of all places the South Street Seaport. It was a concert on a bleak rainy day in a strange locale, but Oneida ripped through the album and proved that a suite of three lengthy instrumental pieces could be compelling even out of its element. On Friday under the inventive light displays and among the art installations of Secret Project Robot, Oneida played virtually the same flawless set very much within their element. The multi-colored lights often masked the intricate work of the keyboardists while the PW lead instrument, Kid Millions’ drums, were prominently displayed throughout. As Bobby Matador stepped up from the keys to strap on an electric bass for the balance of the set, the band kicked into overdrive and the final twenty minutes of this first set of the weekend was Oneida at its very best.

This recording was captured with the Neumann microphones mounted in the back of the room and mixed a limited soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

We recorded the Rated O set and the dawn performance of Absolute II and those sets will be posted soon.
