Acid Mothers Temple: April 20, 2019 Market Hotel

The return of the Acid Mothers Temple stateside has become a yearly tradition and as a result the band has built its reputation in the U.S. as one of the most intense psych rock bands on the planet.  This year the band agreed to play the show on the day that has become a kind of Christmas for heads — “4-20” at Market Hotel.  Whether responding to the unique surroundings or the “holiday” atmosphere, AMT drew their largest crowd of the tour and played their longest set of the year.  This show was 90 minutes of the most intense music we’ve ever seen from this band, which has evolved in personnel in recent years, but remains anchored by the ferocious lead guitar of  Kawabata Makoto.  New-ish guitarist and vocalist Jyonson Tsu was featured in Dark Star Blues and La Novia, and the band is blessed with Tsu’s intense vocals and intuitive interplay with Makoto.  All in all, this was exactly what we’d hoped for from this band on this date, and judging by the diary entry for this date on Kawabata’s blog, the band was pretty stoked about the show too.

I recorded this set by substituting the Neumann hypers into the installed rig in the venue and the change was exactly perfect for this show.  A small percentage of the board feed was used to fortify vocals and kick drum, and overall the sound is superb.  Enjoy!

Avey Tare: April 1, 2019 Market Hotel

This year marks ten years since Animal Collective released Merriweather Post Pavilion, and coincidentally ten years since the recordings of their landmark gigs at The Bowery Ballroom and Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom crashed the NYCTaper servers. Since then we’ve seen Animal Collective countless times and have covered shows by each member individually, none more than Avey Tare.

Back in 2017, Avey returned to The Bowery Ballroom to play songs off Eucalyptus and preview his most current album, Cows on Hourglass Pond. Never content to linger in the same place too long, last week’s show at Market Hotel was heavy on the Cows songs, with one song each from Eucalyptus and Down There. The sole unreleased song from this set, “Enjoy the Change,” was also played back at Bowery but surprisingly didn’t end up Cows.

I recorded this set with Market Hotel’s installed Audio Technica 4051’s, combined with a board feed courtesy of the venue and engineer, Eric. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Guerilla Toss: October 31, 2018 Market Hotel

December 19, 2018
By

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!

Pile: December 9, 2017 Market Hotel

December 26, 2017

[photos by Stephanie Ronquillo – full set at her Flickr and Instragram]

Pile is one of those bands who you thought was your little secret and suddenly there are 500 people at their show. There’s something to be said for a band that grows its fanbase steadily and organically through consistently solid shows and records. Pile has existed for more than ten years and since signing to the most excellent Exploding In Sound Records in 2011, the trend has continued upward. The last couple of years have been remarkable. We saw them in 2015 at SXSW before a modest crowd and then later 2015 before a couple of hundred at Baby’s All Right. Earlier this year, we captured their sold out show at Sunnyvale. But a couple of weeks ago Pile sold out five-hundred strong at Market Hotel.

Buoyed by the band’s most recent album, the superb A Hairshirt of Purpose, Pile has finally and deservedly arrived. The Market Hotel offers a nice companion to the Pile experience, both are authentically DIY. The packed-in fans responded in kind, singing along to all of the lyrics showing true appreciation for the older obscure numbers that the band whipped out late in the set. The setlist for this show was heavy on Hairshirt material, but also delved into their self-released 2011 7″ (“Scissors”), “Pigeon Song” from the Boston Hassle compilation, and a couple of songs from the early Dripping album. We expect to see Pile again as often as possible, and hopefully at Market Hotel in the Spring or Summer.

This recording was captured by FOH Harrison utilizing the internal USB drive recording device on the Market Hotel’s Behringer X32 Soundboard. For a straight board feed from a smallish room, this recording is quite well balanced other than somewhat more prominent vocals. Enjoy!

Titus Andronicus: December 14, 2017 Market Hotel

December 17, 2017
By

Thursday night at Market Hotel was a night for survivors. Both the artist and the venue are inextricably intertwined as crucial parts of last decade’s Brooklyn DIY scene, but both have reshaped and reformatted themselves for the future. Titus Andronicus survived the meat grinder of the music industry and a myriad of personnel changes, and now find themselves having landed peacefully into the arms of the excellent Merge Records. The most recent Titus record, 2015’s The Most Lamentable Tragedy was perhaps the band’s most ambitious and fully realized record. The Market Hotel meanwhile has itself survived a laundry list of issues but Market v3.0 began again in November and the limited calendar will soon give way to a full-on slate of shows in the New Year.

This year saw Titus Andronicus in retooling mode, and this Market Hotel show was the only headlining Titus gig of the entire 2017 calendar year. But Patrick Stickles seems to be in a very good place personally, as his positivity on this night was palpable. When the doors opened, the band members were seated at the merch table to greet the fans, and Patrick spend the better part of the first hour of the night meeting and greeting and catching up with old friends. The fan friendly theme bled directly into the performance itself, as Titus delivered a nearly two-hour set — representing the longest set ever played at this venue. The setlist contained a panoply of Titus material, from their very first single all the way through a good chunk of the recent albums. Throughout the show, Patrick noted members of the audience, thanked the people who have helped the band throughout the years, and played his heart out. The crowd for their part were fully engaged — there were no chatterers, just people singing along with the anthemic lyrics from the front to the back of the venue. By the time the set ended with a fantastic punk-tinged cover of Springsteen’s “Glory Days”, the crowd, the band, and the venue had proved that its all about survival and fighting through life’s conflicts to emerge on the other side stronger than ever. We expect that 2018 will be a very good year for both Titus Andronicus and The Market Hotel, and this show gave us great hope for the future of both.

I recorded this set with the installed microphones along with an excellent feed from house FOH Eric. Other than one point near the end of “Perfect Union” when a drum mic shorted out, this recording is quite excellent. Enjoy!

JEFF The Brotherhood: September 27, 2016 Market Hotel

October 30, 2016

In 2016, JEFF The Brotherhood is the perfect band to play Market Hotel. Both the band and the venue are survivors of the early years of NYC DIY and after JEFF spent some time in major label land and Market reconstructed after a 2010 closure, both are back this year better than ever. JEFF’s new album Zone harkens back to their earlier work — 70s-influenced party/stoner rock with songs that are about carefree days of youth.

This Market Hotel show took place last month on a Tuesday night — the first of three consecutive mid-week nights on the venue’s schedule in the final week before the ramp up to a full liquor license and a full calendar. JEFF’s draw in Brooklyn was strong enough to fill the place on a school night and the band was thankful in acknowledging the crowd size and its participation level. The band played a heavy dose of Zone material, but also relied on a nice mix of older songs including an epic nine-minute version of “Whatever I Want” to close the night. With the frenetic crowd, the M Train passing by the panorama windows, and the Orrall brother ripping through this classic number, all seemed perfect for a moment in Bushwick. We’re hoping their are many more nights like this with JEFF gigs at Market.

JEFF The Brotherhood just returned from a tour of Europe and will have selected shows in the South through November and December, dates HERE.

I recorded this set with the mounted AT mics mixed with John’s excellent feed. The room sounded really excellent and the crowd level of excitement led me to favor the room mics in this mix. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

YVETTE: September 29, 2016 Market Hotel

YVETTE owned the stage on this night at Market Hotel, preparing the crowd for HEALTH with their enveloping, dark, and percussive sound that seems like it won’t let you go. Since 2013’s Process we’ve seen YVETTE grow and evolve as a band, as they’ve continued to gestate new material before rapt live audiences. Between our Hopscotch encounter with them in 2014 to a Trans-Pecos show in 2015, they’ve continued to develop new and exciting ways to get under our skin, including a couple of new songs on this night that we hadn’t heard before (one so new it lacks a title). Likewise, the Market made sense for this band and the one it followed, with the room’s layout literally narrowing the focus to the lone duo up front, backlit and relentless. Noah Kardos-Fein and drummer Dale Eisinger have always maintained a certain economy to their shows, foregoing most chatter in favor of weaving their set into a continuous flow. It feels like time for a new record, which they’ve continued to work on, especially as Process predates Eisinger’s time in the band. We can’t wait to hear it.

I recorded this set with the mounted AT 4051 cardiods an a flawless soundboard feed from house engineer Jason. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Bear vs Shark: September 28, 2016 Market Hotel

October 6, 2016
By

Its not particularly uncommon for bands to be more popular in a reunion than they were originally. In the early part of last decade, the post-hardcore/math-rock/screamo band Bear vs Shark released two albums with Equal Vision Records that were pretty well received. But here we are more than ten years later and many current bands sound very much like Bear vs Shark. If they’re not directly cited as an influence, their sound can definitely be heard within the works of more recent artists.

All that being said, the best way to measure the influence of Bear vs Shark in 2016 is to measure the reaction to their reunion announcement. The tour included a date at Market Hotel that sold out within hours and other dates were similarly quick sell-outs. At Market last week, the entire front half of the packed-in crowd literally sang along with every word of every song — you can hear them on this recording. Indeed, lead singer Marc Paffi let the crowd finish verses multiple times throughout the night. And what a night it was. Bear vs Shark played every song that they’d re-learned for the reunion tour in a show that lasted almost ninety minutes and covered seventeen separate numbers. But the night was really all about the interaction between the generous and thankful band and the rabid fans, both of whom expended all of their energy by the end of a truly outstanding show.

The Bear vs Shark tour continues through the end of October with two West coast dates and two final dates in Chicago, tour info here.

I recorded this set with the installed AT mics and a mix from the board feed. The sound is quite excellent and very representative of the high energy in the venue that night. Enjoy!

LVL UP: September 24, 2016 Market Hotel

September 27, 2016

On Friday LVL UP released their new album Return To Love, their first for legendary record label Sub Pop. The album is a superb collection of songs from the band’s three songwriters that indicate a large mix of influences but ultimately seems utterly original. The day after the band released the album, LVL UP celebrated with a sold-out show at Market Hotel that was as joyous as it was well-deserved.

LVL UP are four friends who’ve played music together since college, put together a record label for their own releases and for the release of their friends, moved to NYC and played a lot of shows. And at Market, it was clear just how many friends they’ve made — between the advanced ticket sales, the packed crowd, and the idea that most of these fans seemed to know each other (the band’s parents were even there). LVL UP responded with a set that was both high on energy and also showed that the guys were moved by the outpouring of support. But this was a record release show after all and LVL UP did not disappoint. They played “side one” of the album straight through to start the show and then played a few older numbers. LVL UP then finished the set with “side two” of the album before being called back for a couple of encores.

LVL UP will tour across the US throughout the months of September and October and through to the middle of November, including a date opening for Bear Vs Shark at Bowery Ballroom on Thursday. All dates are here.

I recorded this set with the installed AT Mics mixed with Jason Kelly’s excellent feed. The sound is superb. Enjoy!
