Consider The Gotobeds music by and for music nerds. The Pittsburgh post-punks aren’t shy about their influences—hell, the band is named after Wire’s drummer after all. And while some internet rags may take issue with a band that wears its influences proudly, these guys clearly don’t take themselves overly seriously and they don’t expect you to either. Their first record for Sub Pop, Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic, came out on June 10th and that weekend they stopped by Brooklyn for a couple shows at Northside Festival. We made it out for a typically loose set at the afternoon Unblinking Ear Records Showcase at Union Pool. The band plays the hits old an new, including my personal favorite, “Bodies,” which has been stuck in my head since last August if we’re talking earworms… So pretend it’s Saturday afternoon: chill out, have a beer, soak in the songs—and while you’re at it, go see The Gotobeds on their ongoing tour.

I recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue, with a soundboard feed from Union Pool FOH, Kevin. The results are excellent. Enjoy!

As an added bonus, we’ve uploaded the complete set from the Gotobeds’ show at Saint Vitus last year, which had originally been redacted to exclude songs off their (then) upcoming record. Check here for the restored recording!

The Gotobeds: August 30, 2015 Saint Vitus

By all indications, The Gotobeds are having a tremendous year: riding their accolades from last year’s well-received debut album, Poor People are Revolting (on 12XU), the Pittsburgh band recently signed with Sub Pop and their second full-length is highly anticipated for sometime next year. They’ve played NYC a few times in 2014 and 15, but I’ve somehow slept on them until they showed up on an excellent triple bill with Royal Headache and Sheer Mag a couple weeks back. The Gotobeds apparently drove out from Pittsburgh just to make this show, and they’re in rare form: drinking heavily and clearly in good spirits, the band covers the entirety of the first Redd Kross EP. This is sure to be one of those shows that’s talked about for many years to come, so dig in now and soon when these guys are headlining much larger venues, you can talk as if you were there, man.

I recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue, with a soundboard feed from Saint Vitus FOH, Jeff. The results are excellent. Enjoy!

The Gotobeds will be back in NYC for CMJ, October 15–19. Keep an eye out for details.
