Camper Van Beethoven: January 10, 2009 Bowery – Flac and MP3 Downloads

January 12, 2009

As if Friday night’s thorough two-hour career retrospective was not enough, Camper Van Beethoven returned to the Bowery Ballroom on Saturday and delivered a similarly energetic show with sixteen different songs in the setlist. The band dug deep into the catalog for such rare gems as “Joe Stalin’s Cadillac”, “Where the Hell is Bill?”, and “Abundance” among the 33 songs performed. Although we would have preferred to see “Interstellar Overdrive” again, it seemed fairly clear that CVB consciously aimed to provide a completely different and yet equally compelling show on the second night of the stand.

We recorded from the same location as Friday night’s recording, but the mix in the room was slightly better on Saturday. Although the large crowd and more rambunctious fans attended Saturday’s show, our location avoided any significant noise and ultimately this is likely the superior recording of the two nights. Enjoy!
