The Shine A Light Music Festival took place a few weeks back, and we’ve already posted the Luna reunion (here). As our regular readers are aware, The War On Drugs is one of my favorite current bands. The addition of this set to the site is by no means an afterthought, but the result of a discovery. Due to technical problems, I had written this recording off as a non-post, but after a re-listen and re-evaluation this week, the sound quality is far above what I expected. The show was also something special. The War On Drugs arrived early at the gig and had already soundchecked by the time I got there and set up. The band was interacting and mingling with all of the members of the Tommy Brull Foundation for several hours before their set, so that by the time they took the stage The War On Drugs felt like they were playing to friends. The show contained a nice mix of their material, but also some entertaining banter, a “guest” guitarist, and even some gentle ribbing of nyctaper.

I recorded this show with the Sennheiser 8040’s on-stage and running through the snake and mixed with a board feed. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the phantom power of the mics, so this set is the straight board feed. Its not optimal for sound quality, but its certainly a good listen. Enjoy!

Dean & Britta (with Luna reunion!): July 21, 2012 Mulcahy’s Wantagh NY – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

The amazing story of how this Dean & Britta / Luna reunion concert at the Tommy Brull Foundation Benefit came to fruition is a tale that bears repeating many times over. Tommy Brull was a huge Luna fan, and as his brother Martin relates in the introduction to this recording, many of the memories of his friends and family have of Tommy revolve around seeing or listening to the music of Luna. After several unsuccessful attempts to persuade Dean and Britta to perform at previous Benefits, fate intervened. This Winter, Martin answered an ad for a guitar for sale on craigslist and was shocked to find that the seller was none other than Dean Wareham. When Martin sampled the guitar by playing some of Luna’s “Tiger Lily”, a connection was made. And when Dean learned the details of the life of Tommy Brull and the mission of the Foundation, Dean and Britta agreed to play this year’s Shine A Light Festival. For the show, Sean Eden also agreed to play, and the Luna reunion was set. On Saturday night in Wantagh, I arrived in time to witness some of the Luna soundcheck. It seemed like no time had passed since the last incarnation of the band said farewell with a series of shows at Bowery Ballroom. With Dean, Sean and Britta out front and joined by Dean and Britta drummer Anthony LaMarca, this was as close to a full-fledged Luna reunion as we are likely to ever see — and it was one night only. The set began with two Galaxie 500 songs and a stunning cover of Nico’s (penned by Dylan) “I’ll Keep It With Mine” that we are streaming below. After a brief introduction, Sean joined the band on stage and the balance of the set contained seven Luna songs and two more Galaxie 500 songs that Luna performed often. The guitar interplay between Dean and Sean was spot on, and the rhythm section was flawless. In tribute to Martin and fate’s intervention, we are streaming “Tiger Lily” with the faith that Tommy Brull is smiling, knowing that more than a decade since his passing, he can still make amazing things happen.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser 8040’s on stage and mixed with a soundboard feed. A problem with the phantom powering of the Sennheiser’s led to a minimal signal from the on-stage feed, and I relied heavily (75%) on the board feed for the mix. The feed is quite heavily on kick drums but after quite a bit of editing, I was able to produce an excellent listening recording. With those caveats, enjoy!

We ask that if you download this recording, you’ll also contribute to the Tommy Brull Foundation. The Shine A Light Festival was held to raise money for Camp Anchor, a camp in Long Beach that assists disabled children.

Tommy Brull Foundation Concert Announcement: War On Drugs and Dean and Britta July 21 in Wantagh

April 30, 2012
By

We are so pleased to be able to announce today that the Tommy Brull Foundation will present the 2nd Annual Shine A Light Festival on July 21, 2012 at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh on Long Island. This year’s roster of bands includes co-headliners (and nyctaper favorites) The War On Drugs along with Dean and Britta. Wormburner will also appear again this year in an encore performance from last year’s Festival.

The Tommy Brull Foundation is a remarkable organization set up to celebrate the life of Tommy, who died far too young. The Foundation’s mission includes assisting persons with disabilities in the greater Nassau County area. The proceeds from last year’s Shine A Light Festival were donated to Camp Anchor, a summer camp for disabled youth in Lido Beach. The Camp is special to the Foundation in large part because Tommy actually worked there. We were involved in last year’s Festival, which included performances by Deer Tick and Wormburner, both featured on nyctaper.

Tickets for the July 21 event went on sale this morning through Ticketfly [HERE].

The Facebook invite page for this amazing show is [HERE].

Mulcahy’s is in Wantagh on Long Island. It is reachable by the Long Island Railroad, and the venue is right across the street from the Wantagh station. See you there!

Deer Tick: August 10, 2011 Wantagh NY – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

We have always personally liked Deer Tick, all the way back to meeting John McCauley for the first time in early 2008. He seemed genuine and the rootsy nature of the band’s music reflected that sincerity. As Deer Tick has grown in stature and size, its been easy to root for them. So when we were contacted by the Tommy Brull Foundation about recording their charity concert on Long Island, it came as no surprise the Deer Tick had agreed to headline the show. The Foundation was organized in 2008 to celebrate the life of Tommy who passed away at the age of 23, and it supports a variety of causes in his memory that benefit disabled children. On Wednesday at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh, Deer Tick truly gave it their all for the cause, as they performed a non-stop set that spanned two hours and contained thirty songs. The set culled tracks from all three of their releases, and also featured five new songs that will appear on an album to be released in October. We are streaming one of the stronger new tracks “Funny Word”. The band also let it all hang out and played a bunch of eclectic covers, including the Replacements song we posted on Friday.

Please support the Tommy Brull Foundation and the important work they do, and donate to the Foundation [HERE].

I recorded this set with a very well-balanced soundboard feed mixed with the DPA cardioid microphones placed at the center of the room. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Deer Tick Covered The Replacements – MP3 Download + Streaming Song

August 12, 2011

In 1985, the Replacements were at their peak. After the breakthrough success of the brilliant Let It Be, the band’s follow-up album was arguably a more consistently excellent release and stands today as the pinnacle of the Replacements catalog. Tim was the first Replacements album on Sire Records, and sadly the last album with original guitarist Bob Stinson. Two years later, Pleased To Meet Me was a clear step down from Tim. The band’s final three albums each represented a decrease in quality from the previous one, so that by the time the Replacements broke up in 1990, their creative output was spent.

Among the best of the current list of bands that exhibit a clear Replacements influence are Titus Andronicus and Deer Tick. Ian O’Neil is a former member of Titus and current guitarist for Deer Tick, and on Wednesday night with Deer Tick, Ian and John McCauley traded vocals on “Waitress in the Sky”. While several other tracks from Tim are clear standouts, “Waitress” is a short number with a bunch of earworm lines. Paul Westerberg is said to have written this from the unsympathetic perspective of the nasty passengers with whom flight attendants have to deal.

The Deer Tick performance took place at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh Long Island. The show was a benefit for the Tommy Brull Foundation. If you download this song, please proceed to the Foundation’s website and Donate [HERE].
