White Stripes July 24, 2007 NYC – lossless download

White Stripes

Well, its two weeks later, and instead of seeing White Stripes with 1200 people on a remote island in Canada, its back to the big city, the world’s most famous arena, and 20,000 fans. Again, Jack and Meg were consistently excellent. The performance lasted 30 minutes longer than the July 11 concert, and the band did not seem to be fazed at all by the size of the venue or the raucous crowd.

The NYC recording differs from the Canada recording, but the quality is equally excellent. I was in my favorite recording section of the Garden, Section 7, which placed me in front of the soundboard and in the center. This recording has more stereo presence, but also more of the crowd. It is perhaps a better overall representation of the experience of this outstanding concert.

This recording is no longer available due to Mr. White’s new strict anti-taping and anti-sharing policy.

Avante-harpist Zeena Parkins played a central role in the Matmos concert discussed below. She performed a full array of harp sounds, from the beautiful melodic acoustic harp to the powerful and violent cacophony of her electric harp.

The concert offered for download below was a trio of Zeena, keyboardist Jamie Saft, and drummer Bobby Previte. They performed at the now-defunct jazz club Tonic, and provided an hour of compelling experimental jazz.

Matmos at Lincoln Center July 21, 2007

July 22, 2007
By

matmos

Unique electronic duo Matmos, joined by So Percussion, trumpeter Dave Douglas and harpist Zeena Parkins, presented an extraordinary amalgam of sound on Saturday night. The “orchestra of sound” produced rhythmic music with standard instruments such as piano, drums, harp and timpani, but also created whole songs from such everyday objects like aluminum cans, metal sheets, foil, shells, pottery, water, and pieces of clay. The highlight of the evening was the excerpt from the electronic version of Verdi’s Aida, commissioned by the City of Verona Italy.

As the floor-to-ceiling curtain was raised at the opening of the Aida piece, the Allen Room at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall window revealed a breathtaking panorama of the Columbus Circle/Central Park/59th Street area. The convergence of the electronic music with the stunning cityscape was one of those perfect moments of live music when the setting perfectly compliments the performance.

When I ordered the tickets online, I assumed that “Row A” would place me in the first row. I did not imagine that the first row would be a mere 5 feet from MC Schmidt. The experience of being within arm’s reach of the performer was truly a fortunate stroke of luck. However, such a position made the logisitics of recording this concert, despite express permission from Matmos, practically impossible. Instead of opening my equipment bag, I placed it under my seat and thoroughly enjoyed this tremendous experience.

In appreciation of readers who expected a recording of this concert, I have reached into my recent archives and have posted above a Zeena Parkins concert I recorded in 2006.

White Stripes July 11, 2007 Prince Edward Island – Lossless Download

July 15, 2007

ws

NYCTaper became PEITaper for a night when my annual vacation trip to Prince Edward Island crisscrossed with the White Stripes tour across Canada. Charlottetown is a beautiful old city on the water, and its quaint Civic Centre provided a uniquely intimate setting to experience Jack and Meg on tour. The White Stripes large stage set-up and the layout of the small hockey arena only allowed for about 1200 people in the facility.

I was seated in the first row of the stands, 3 seats from the front, directly in line and only 20 feet from the left PA speaker stack. As a result, the recording is quite clear and upfront. Additionally, the hockey boards provided a buffer from much of the noise of the crowd from the floor.

As you’ll hear in the recording offered for download below, the White Stripes used the intimate setting to perform a nice varied setlist and a high energy show–such that Charlottetown may be the best show of the entire Canadian tour.

This recording is no longer available due to Mr. White’s new strict anti-taping and anti-sharing policy.

Fiery Furnaces – June 30, 2007 – Lossless Download

July 1, 2007
By

I was introduced to the music of the Fiery Furnaces through a live cover of their song “Tropical Ice-land” by Of Montreal. Kevin Barnes called their Blueberry Boat the album he “goes to sleep with at night”.

When one door closes, sometimes another better door opens. When Morrissey postponed his show (see below), I was fortunate that a concert of this quality was also scheduled in the NYC area. After securing a ticket through craigslist, it was off to Jersey.

Its hard to describe the music of Fiery Furnaces without engaging in weird musical juxtapositions. They perform oddly accessible alt-pop, with a dry sense of humor, and strange twists of melody. My best absurd description would be the 1975-era Patti Smith fronting a band with members of Captain Beefheart.

The Maxwell’s performance captured below was superb in all respects. The sound quality, the performance, and the energy of the crowd and the band were all outstanding.
