Guerilla Toss: October 31, 2018 Market Hotel

December 19, 2018

The genre-bending shamanistic space-rock collective Guerilla Toss have been a must-see live act for several years now. We caught them in a daytime slot in the Out In the Streets Festival in 2016 and then later in a support slot at Secret Project Robot when the band played literally among the crowd (and our mics) on the floor of the venue.

For this majestic set on Halloween at Market Hotel, Guerilla Toss sold out the venue that fit their aesthetic to a tee.  This show definitely had an event feel throughout the night and the band certainly lived up to the atmosphere.  Performing in front of an imported, elaborate, but appropriately spacey lighting rig, Guerilla Toss delivered a meaty ninety-minute set to their vocally devoted followers.  Personally, the highlight of the set was the seamless segue into a haunting version of Nico’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties” which seemed an appropriate cover for GT and fit right into their oeuvre.  But ultimately this show was more about the ability of this band to perfectly sync all of their classically trained abilities into a unique and compelling amalgam of modern music.  Guerilla Toss remains a must see band and this show, their biggest in the NYC market thus far, is proof that they will continue to grow their reach.

I recorded this set with the installed AT mics and a fine soundboard feed. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!
