February 3, 2014

The rabid fans of a classic old band used to say “it doesn’t matter what they play, but how they play it”. The modern day version of Oneida fits this phrase exactly. In their 17th year as a band, Oneida has settled in well as a five-piece band that literally plays with no conventional boundaries. As their recent albums have eschewed traditional song structures, their contemporary concerts don’t really have “setlists” as much as the band just plays. Last fall, we captured an Oneida show at Glasslands that essentially consisted of one “song” and an encore. The show on Friday at Knitting Factory was over an hour and consisted of four separate tracks that weren’t seemingly so much songs as extended musical interplay between the individual members of the quintet, the penultimate of which lasted longer than thirty minutes. That being said, the attraction of the present incarnation of this amazing band is the musicianship. Kid Millions is perhaps the greatest living drummer and his indefagitable work behind the kit is always a wonder to behold. On this night we spent much of the time watching the interplay between the dual guitars of Baby Jane and Shahin Motia, who sometimes take a supporting role but on this night spent much of the set trading furious lead segments. As they approach their second decade as a band, Oneida continues to amaze with their inventiveness and we are certain to see them every time possible when they play locally — which is generally only a few times a year.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards on a stand back near the soundboard and mixed with an excellent feed provided by house FOH Rob. The sound quality is quite excellent, enjoy!
