Although Dinosaur Feathers have appeared twice on nyctaper in the last six months, it had been last summer since I personally had last seen them live. In the intervening months, the band released their new album Fantasy Memorial, which has gathered a ton of glowing press (and one painfully overwritten pan by a low-rent pitchfork wannabe with issues). With the positive momentum behind them, Dinosaur Feathers went on a successful tour, booked high profile gigs (Sasquatch Festival and summer Pier shows included) and generally are playing with a ton of confidence. We were delighted to have beat the rush and booked them months ago for our anniversary show at Pianos this past Saturday. The three band members spent the entire show in the room, chatted with friends and cheered on the other bands — their success has not changed them from the friendly folks we met last year. The set was, by the band’s own account, one of the best shows they’ve played in a while. Greg and Duck were as one in unison on the harmonies, and new-ish bassist Ryan adds a palpable kinetic stage energy. The songs were primarily new album material, with one debut EP track and one new song included. The venue was packed when Dinosaur Feathers performed — you can literally hear the buzz of the room in between songs — and a large part of the success of our third anniversary show can be attributed to this band.

This set was recorded with a feed from the board mixed with two Neumann room mics and the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
