Dead Stars are one of those Brooklyn bands that have been on my radar and whose recorded output has impressed, but I’ve never actually seen live. That changed at Glasslands on Wednesday last, and Dead Stars did not disappoint. In a short and tight opening set, the band played all three songs from I Get By their 2012 EP (we’re streaming one below), a couple of songs from their recent EP High Gain (Uninhabitable Mansions), and a couple of new songs. The live Dead Stars sounds quite like Dinosaur Jr., which is certainly a good thing, and overall has a solid 90s-influenced sound. We talked to the guys briefly after the show out near their crazy tour van, and its clear that not only are these guys good, but they really like what they’re doing. That’s refreshing and welcome.

I recorded this set with our installed rig and the sound is superb. Enjoy!
