The website for Brooklyn band Low Fat Getting High describes their sound as “post-noise-grunge-core-shredding”. After this show at Shea Stadium — where they packed twelve songs into a set less than a half-hour long — I’d say that’s about right. There’s a definite 90s influence going on — at points, they feel in like what Local H might have sounded like with more balls — but LFGH dispenses with much of that decade’s sad-sack navel-gazing in favor of jams that deliver the party like a gut punch. This set roiled from the first notes of their single, “Better Better Worse” through what practically qualifies as a “jam” number for this band, the four-and-a-half minute “My Hate”. But where some bands in this territory are content with turning it up and getting stoopid, LFGH has some real craft behind their work. Snag their EP, Bad Yoga, or better yet, head over to Muchmore’s on March 29, and see for yourself.

Like our other set’s from this night, this  was recorded in full digital multitrack combined with a pair of my audience mics. The Shea team was gracious enough to let us use their digital multitrack files, which made for a recording of outstanding, almost album quality. We’d encourage you to check out their site for their own version of this show (coming soon) and those of hundreds of other bands.
