The Brooklyn band PC Worship has been on this site several times this year, in part because they are one of the strongest experimental and improvisational bands in the scene right now. This show at Aviv, a Greenpoint DIY spot that has been killing it with booking lately, felt like this band’s natural habitat. In the searing late summer temperatures, the band took us through a three-song set that included “Rust” from their latest, Social Rust, as well as “Blank Touch.” But the centerpiece came at the beginning — a sprawling “Tides” that took up the bulk of the set, and set a hypnotic, intense tone for the two shorter bursts to come. It’s not the longest PC Worship set we’ve seen, clocking in at under half an hour, but like every time they take the stage, it’s a memorable one. The band is touring Europe right now, but they’ll be back at the Bowery Ballroom on October 13 and 15 with Panda Bear.
I recorded this set with a soundboard feed from Aviv engineer John, as well as Schoeps MK4V microphones mounted in the center on the balcony. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
