Dirty Dishes: June 6, 2017 Alphaville

June 20, 2017

Since hosting them at our CMJ show a few years back, Dirty Dishes have continued to grow steadily, as Jenny Tuite and her bandmates continue to develop a reputation around their adopted home in New York (via Boston and then California). Following on their 2015 full length, Guilty, the band have released a trickle of new material since. “All of Me,” from last year, kicked off this show at Alphaville, and its heavy, dirge-like sound was an instant favorite. The band wears their early-mid-90s influences proudly, and what they share with those bands is a keen sense of the dynamics at work in that music, and the sense of controlled abandon that made that style compelling in the first place. If this wasn’t the longest show on record, it was more than enough to remind us what we liked so much about this band in the first place, and to leave us hoping for more from them in 2017.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V in a mobile rig right in the middle of the room. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Dirty Dishes: October 15, 2015 NYCTaper CMJ Party at Cake Shop

The story of how the band Dirty Dishes came into being reads like something out of a Judd Apatow movie. The guy who vomits on the girl’s shoes at a party later calls to apologize and buy her new shoes, and eventually the two decide to start a band. The nagging question is why anyone would want to start a band with a shoe-puker — but after about thirty seconds of seeing Alex Molini play bass guitar the answer is obvious. The dude can flat out play. While Jenny Tuite’s lead vocals and melodic guitar lines are the centerpiece of the band, its the Molini bass presence that sets Dirty Dishes apart and are a large part of the reason why we invited them to our play our CMJ Day Party this year. The band had other gigs later in the evening so they needed to start early, which gave us the opportunity to see the band up close unfettered by the massive crowds that filled the Cake Shop basement later in the day. The Dirty Dishes set drew primarily from their 2015 release Guilty (Exploding in Sound Records) with two apparently new songs. It was the interplay between the band’s guitarists that impressed throughout and proves that no matter how you meet, its always a good thing to find your musical mate.

Dirty Dishes’ Fall Tour continues throughout November as the band travels through the East coast, Canada and the Midwest — all dates here. This tour includes a return to NYC for a show at Silent Barn on November 22.

Acidjack recorded this set in the same manner as the WOMPS set posted last week — Schoeps mounted on stage and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
