A year ago we were both excited and impressed by Pylon’s performance at Mercury Lounge. Last night, the Athens legends returned to NYC and performed a looser but equally impressive set. Pylon have performed only a few times this year, but retain their signature sound, quirky energy, and most importantly a unique sense of rhythm. The Knitting Factory offered the band a more intimate setting, and with the crowd consisting of mostly WNYU deejays young and old — a crowd of knowledgeable and attentive fans — Pylon thrived on the vibe.

We recorded from the center riser of the balcony, and as the house board was mixed by Pylon’s veteran local sound tech, the mix in the room was superb. We are very pleased with the sound quality of this recording. Enjoy!
