We last saw Beach Fossils at what would be our last show at Glasslands, a venue with which we had a long and cherished history before it closed on New Year’s Eve 2014. Prior to that, we saw the band play one of the late-era shows at 285 Kent, another now-shuttered venue with which we also shared much history. So at this point, we would much rather experience this excellent band at a show celebrating something new and on Friday we got the chance. Bayonet Records is the new label founded by Beach Fossils’ protagonist Dustin Payseur and former Captured Tracks General Manager Katie Garcia and their debut Northside Festival showcase was a fine display of just how well we expect this label to succeed. It was a four-band bill (more recordings coming later) that was anchored by this Beach Fossils set. The entire show had a celebratory affair and by the time the Fossils took the stage, the venue was in full-on party mode. Upfront, the fans were crashing and bouncing throughout the set, which featured a fine run-though the band’s catalog, and one new song. A new album is expected in 2016. Unfortunately, at one point the middle of crowd got a bit too boisterous and literally a fight broke out. But Dustin was having none of it, as his stopped the band, pointed out the brawlers and made them hug before finishing the set. The show’s finale was a blistering version of “Daydream” and we are streaming that below.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards mounted inside of the soundboard booth and mixed with a fine feed from house FOH Kam. The overall sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!
