By all indications, The Gotobeds are having a tremendous year: riding their accolades from last year’s well-received debut album, Poor People are Revolting (on 12XU), the Pittsburgh band recently signed with Sub Pop and their second full-length is highly anticipated for sometime next year. They’ve played NYC a few times in 2014 and 15, but I’ve somehow slept on them until they showed up on an excellent triple bill with Royal Headache and Sheer Mag a couple weeks back. The Gotobeds apparently drove out from Pittsburgh just to make this show, and they’re in rare form: drinking heavily and clearly in good spirits, the band covers the entirety of the first Redd Kross EP. This is sure to be one of those shows that’s talked about for many years to come, so dig in now and soon when these guys are headlining much larger venues, you can talk as if you were there, man.
I recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue, with a soundboard feed from Saint Vitus FOH, Jeff. The results are excellent. Enjoy!
The Gotobeds will be back in NYC for CMJ, October 15–19. Keep an eye out for details.
