Just two days removed from the amazing for-the-ages Thee Oh Sees show at 285 Kent on Sunday, one would expect a let-down of sorts for the band’s Tuesday show at Irving Plaza. But Thee Oh Sees are not a band short on energy or seemingly in need of any particular motivation to deliver a crowd-pleasing garage-rock show. On Tuesday, the band worked through some technical problems throughout much of the show but continually rose above the issues to deliver song after song of high energy numbers. The venue was prepared in advance for the crowd and had installed a metal grating in front of the stage — the floor was completely maniacal, the band played off the crowd’s response. While 285 was the show of this tour, there were transcendent moments at Irving that reached the same peaks. We are streaming two of those highlights, “Tidal Wave” was three minutes of pure punk goodness, and “Dead Energy” was ten minutes of extended psychedelic jamming that rivaled any live band around these days. Thee Oh Sees have become one of today’s must-see live bands, and these two nights confirmed that we must not miss them whenever they’re in town.

We recorded this set from a 12-foot stand in the middle of the floor. Both set of mics were mounted on the same stand inches away from each other. nyctaper used the Neumann TLM-102 large diaphragm cardioids and acidjack utilized Schoeps Cards. We believe the sound is representative of that in the venue that night, which had some issues. Overall, both sources offer slightly different takes on the same show and both are excellent. Enjoy!
