On their annual co-tour with Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker usually gets the anchor spot. I guess this is because David Lowery, who gets double duty each night, sings louder and more vociferously for Cracker’s style of music than he does for CVB, and if the bands were reversed he’d have no voice at all for the Camper set. For the Stage 48 show a few weeks back, this was again the case. Lowery was his usual more animated Cracker self for a very energetic show. But on that night, we were doubly impressed with the work of Johnny Hickman whose energy, humor and guitar work always makes a Cracker show more entertaining. At the Stage 48 show however, Johnny seemed especially moved by the recent loss of a friend Mac Shingleton and the dedication to Mac of “Another Song About the Rain” ignited something special in that song and the moving version was the highlight of the evening. We’re streaming it below.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the CVB set and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Camper Van Beethoven: January 19, 2013 Stage 48 – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Yesterday, Camper Van Beethoven released their eighth album La Costa Perdida, and first since 2004. The album is a strong continuation of the band’s latter-era mature material. That is to say a melodic mix of CVB songwriting abilities and eclectic influences delivered with technical proficiency. The band’s traditional mini winter tour took them to NYC for the fifth consecutive January, but first at the new midtown venue Stage 48, a club similar in layout and vibe to the location of the three previous CVB NYC shows, Highline Ballroom, but with more “uptown” feel. While at last year’s show we got a sneak peek at 3 of the new songs, on Saturday night the band played five of the album’s ten tracks, including the single-quality number “Northern California Girls” that we are streaming below. While technically “opening” the show, these co-headline sets with Cracker (recording coming soon) are virtually full length, so the band played seventy minutes of material including quite a number of classics. Camper will continue to tour on the album with shows in the Southeast in January and the West coast in February.

This was our first trip to Stage 48. We were quite impressed with the sound quality of the room and the superb quality of this recording reflects the excellent system at Stage 48 and the talents of the venue’s FOH Will. I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards from the soundboard booth, which is located above the floor but below the balcony and mixed it with a fine board feed. Enjoy!
