One of the real joys of seeing live shows is seeing an opening band that just blows you away. That was the case with this opening set from White Fence on a stacked Bowery Ballroom bill led by NYCTaper favorites Woods. White Fence’s records are the solo effort Tim Presley, who also does time in the Strange Boys and Darker My Love, so for this show his backing band consisted of Nick Murray on Drums, and two members of Woods (Jarvis and Kevin), who handled Presley’s material as capably as if it were their own. Presley brings a Dylanesque vocal turn to his garage-psych songs, but the laid-back vibe of the songs doesn’t mean the playing isn’t also top notch, particularly Presley’s guitar work. The band’s entire set brought the rapidly-packing room to peak energy level, climaxing with jammed-out version of “Sticky Fruitman Has Faith” that was worthy of the night’s headliner in its ambitious scope. Whatever Presley’s other commitments musically, I hope he makes this project a priority, as White Fence is a can’t-miss band on any bill they’re on.

We recorded this set in the same manner as the Woods set, and the results are similarly outstanding. Enjoy!

    I saw White Fence open for Woods/Fresh & Onlys here in Los Angeles a few weeks ago and was completely blown away, especially by Tim Presley’s amazing guitar playing. One of best live bands I’ve seen all year, no contest. Thanks for posting!

    Not quite up the standards of Acidjack’s recording, but pretty decent.
