Luna: October 2, 2015 Terminal West Atlanta

October 20, 2015

After a couple of successful mini-tours overseas (plus one Summer NYC show), it was time for Luna to tour the East coast in their highly successful reunion. The first show of this tour became one of the most memorable because the band chose this night to perform the complete album Penthouse start to finish. This release came at the pinnacle of Luna’s 1990s success, and it is perhaps their most consistently excellent album. Its certainly one of my personal favorites. Penthouse material has been prominent throughout the 2015 shows, so the performance of the complete record only added three songs that had not previously been played, and a couple that only made sparse setlist appearances. But it was all very tight, well played, and the band’s between-song banter continues to draw smiles. After the completion of Penthouse, Luna came out for a mini-set and an encore that stretched this concert longer than any previous in 2015.

Luna’s current tour continues with seven more shows out West (dates here), including another performance of the Penthouse album at the Teragram Ballroom in LA presented by our friends over at Aquarium Drunkard.

Kubacheck recorded this set from the front and center balcony of this venue — an excellent location sound-wise for capturing the show. Unfortunately, the crowd is boisterous and a bit chatty, but overall its an excellent recording. Enjoy!

Warehouse: June 12, 2015 Rough Trade – Flac/MP3/Streaming

August 19, 2015

Warehouse Live

When the first and most immediate comparison I make with a current band is to the late great Pylon, you know that band has immediately won me over. Warehouse is from the same area as Pylon (Atlanta/Athens) and play the same tight and jittery math-rock that was revolutionized in the early 80’s when Pylon songs like “Dub” and “Crazy” were making waves on college radio. Its heartening to know 30+ years hence that bands still feel this influence, and in the case of Warehouse, actually acknowledge the musical debt. Not surprisingly, all of this is not lost on the Eighties aficionados at Bayonet Records who have signed Warehouse to their fledgling label. At the Bayonet Northside showcase, Warehouse was the first band on the bill and one that certainly caught the early attention of the room that filled quickly when the band began to play. This set is marked by the appearance of five new (with working titles) songs in the eight-song setlist. The band’s only current release is the Tesseract cassette of which three songs were played, and we are streaming “Promethean Gaze” below. Consider this recording an excellent preview of the new album, which is not expected until next year but has the early ingredients to be a stunner. We’ll be waiting for it, certainly.

Warehouse is currently booking Fall tour dates. Keep posted by following them on Facebook.

This set was recorded in the same manner at the Beach Fossils set from this show (Schoeps plus Kam’s feed) and the sound is equally superb. Enjoy!

Gringo Star: June 14, 2014 Mercury Lounge – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Full Set

August 11, 2014

[band promo photo]

Gringo Star‘s formula ain’t hard to figure out, nor is it foreign to fans of the stellar garage rock that’s been pouring out of the Atlanta, GA area for the past several years. Helmed by the Furgiuele brothers — Nick and Peter — Gringo Star plays fun-loving, to-the-point tunes that find them in good company with other recent site favorites like fellow Atlantans The Coathangers and the West Coasters Night Beats. This late-night set at Mercury Lounge proved to be the kind of free-for-all you might expect, with the band as ringleaders. Their latest album, Floating Out to See, finds them in a slightly mellower, more textured mode on the LP, but in the tight confines of Mercury it all came out pure party music. I can only hope the after party was as much of a scorcher as this set. 

This set was recorded by the Mercury staff directly from the soundboard and provided to us. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

The Coathangers: April 17, 2014 Baby’s All Right – FLAC/MP3/Streaming Full Set

April 24, 2014

[photos by acidjack. they’re not very good, but the recording is]

The Atlanta all-female punk threesome The Coathangers go for the jugular, but they go for it with a smile. Since their last record, 2011’s Larceny and Old Lace, they no longer have a keyboard player (Candice Jones aka Bebe Coathanger), but stripping down has served them well. The raw ferocity of the remaining members — Minnie Coathanger (Meredith Franco), Crook Kid Coathanger (Julia Kugel) and Rusty Coathanger (Julia Luke) — is more than enough to fill a stage and dominate a forty-five minute set.

This show at Baby’s All Right gave us a look at the material from their 2014 release, Suck My Shirt, and if these songs are any indication, they’re more than fine without the keyboards. The ladies in this band share vocal duties producing an enticing mix of babydoll sweetness and punk snarl. The band’s other most notable component is their shared sense of humor, which can run to dark places, starting with the band name (a reference to the bad old days of abortion).

Throughout the set, the band offered ample doses of self-effacing humor to go with their reckless, infectious songs. When we last saw them, Larceny and Old Lace had just hit the shelves, and they gave new life to several of those now-keyboardless songs like the burner of a set opener, “Johnny” and melodic, somewhat slower-paced “Trailer Park Boneyard”, which was one of my favorites. The new Suck My Shirt material really shone, from the blistering “Adderall” and “Springfield Cannonball” to the rough and raucous “Smother”. The night’s closer, “Don’t Touch My Shit”, was perhaps the perfect example of how punk can grow up without getting lame. The band brought the eight-year old daughter of a friend of the band a young girl who is (one of the band members’ relatives/daughter? If you know… feel free to let me know in the comments) in on guest vocals. We were warned that she’d be saying some bad words, and she did. Best to get them started off early if you want ’em to turn out right!

This recording is a digital multitrack recording and the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
