The story of how this “NYCTaper Presents” show came together is rather simple — we saw an open date at the tail end of DVA’s most recent US tour and arranged for the band to play that night at Trans Pecos. As you may recall, it was at a Northern Spy show at Pecos in early 2014 where we first saw and instantly admired this quite unique Czech duo. DVA is one of those bands that defies musical categorization. The duo loop a variety of captured sounds and perform their songs over an orchestra of loops. Its really something quite remarkable to see live. For their Pecos return, DVA performed a set similar to their previous visit which was exactly why we brought them back. The band featured three of the seven songs from their most recent album, Nipomo, released last year on Northern Spy Records.
I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted at the front of the stage and mixed with a board feed provided by house FOH Joe. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
