[still from official Donora video]
On a summer night in Brooklyn there are few places I’d rather be than Glasslands. With their perfectly refrigerated tap and AC cranked to full blast, it’s always an easy decision to come for a night of great music. So when I saw this great indie-pop lineup with Donora headlining, I was excited.
Back in February, I had the pleasure of seeing Donora play in support of Team Genius and was impressed with the work from their 2011 EP, Boyfriends, Girlfriends. This show at Glasslands was a stop on their Friends Forever tour with fellow Pittsburgh band TeamMate and did not disappoint. Donora’s upbeat set featured many of the songs from the EP plus a brand new track Under the Lights, which made the packed crowd dust off their dancing shoes.
This recording was made with a pair of Schoeps MK5 microphones positioned in our usual spot, along with a soundboard feed. We are really excited about Glasslands’ recently upgraded soundboard, and this was the very first night with the new equipment. House engineer Jeremy absolutely nailed both the live mix and soundboard feed. The recording is an even balance between the two sources and sounds excellent. Enjoy!
