About midway through the Antlers show at Webster Hall last night, I took a stroll around the venue just to try to take it all in. The 1200+ capacity venue was literally packed to the walls — it wasn’t an easy stroll. But the take-away is that this band can fill a venue of this size on a busy Friday night when concert-goers had many other choices. In the Antlers biggest ever show in NYC, the band delivered the goods. It was a ninety-minute set limited only in length by the late-night club that Webster Hall becomes after 11 p.m. We got the feeling that they could have played another half hour. The set consisted of an interesting mix of Burst Apart and Hospice material, including some songs we had not seen in a while. “Sylvia” is streaming below, and the stand-out performance brought back a powerful song that was not played earlier in the year. The Burst Apart material has grown in length and development in the live setting, and in particular “Teeth” (also streaming below) embodies that maturation. Just a few days removed from a 30-plus show tour of Europe, the Antlers were well rehearsed but undoubtedly a little fatigued. Fortunately, the energy of a sold-out triumphant hometown return show invigorated the quartet, so that there wasn’t an ebb moment in the entire ninety-minute set.

I recorded this set with the hyper-cardioid Neumann microphones placed at the front rail of the soundboard booth in the lower balcony, and mixed with a soundboard feed. The difficult room was mixed with precision by the Antlers FOH Dan Seiders, and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    Hi, I’m trying to download the file. I was at the concert on Saturday and I’d really love to have the recording of it, but it won’t let me download it. Is there any way I can get it sent directly to my email?

    The server is getting hammered with requests. Please be patient, it will download.
