Young Adults are a talented and energetic band with a sound that can best be described as traditional Boston punk. The band contains three 20-somethings who would sound just as comfortable on a 1984 bill with Volcano Suns. On Sunday night, Young Adults had the unenviable task of playing the final spot on the second stage of the NYCTaper Northside Festival showcase. Undeterred by the hour or the placement, they simply ripped up the room with a thirty-minute set of material from their debut album Black Hole with one new number. We certainly expect to hear more from Young Adults in the future, as this set and their set on Saturday at Northside drew raves.

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones mounted above the soundboard booth. Unfortunately, technical snafus marred the board feed, so that this is a straight audience recording. Nevertheless, the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
