In their nearly two decades as a band, The Dandy Warhols have done just about everything that musicians can do, in and outside of the music world. What continues to be refreshing about this band is there’s no “coast” in their vocabulary. Last month the Dandy Warhols released their eight studio album This Machine, which while it flew under the radar of most of the fad of the month publications, nevertheless continued to solidify the band’s catalog. When Pitchfork accused the Dandy Warhols of “going through the motions” we hoped that it was a knee-jerk reaction to a new album of a band nearing their second decade and from a publication known for mailing in agenda-fueled reviews. The album’s tour came to NYC this week and we caught the Irving Plaza show with a bit of trepidation. We expected that a band on autopilot would have performed an hour set with a few new songs mixed into the main set and the classics to close the show. Fortunately, the Dandy Warhols were just getting started at the hour point — a couple of band members actually took a bathroom break. Instead the band plowed through twenty-two songs that covered material from every single one of their albums. We are streaming the much-requested “Lou Weed” from their debut album. When the show ended with an extended version of “Boys Better”, the Dandy Warhols had played for two hours and barely came up for air. If this epic Irving Plaza show proved anything, its that Pitchfork is going through the motions and were both cynical and lazy in their assessment. The Dandy Warhols are as vital as ever.

I recorded this set with the four microphone rig on the floor of the venue in front of the balcony overhang with the microphone stand up to 15 feet to avoid the floor chatter. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    Huge fan of your site. Great recording as well. Just caught the Dandy’s at the 9:30 club in DC, and was thoroughly impressed. They played a very similar set with 2 hours of hits and an all-out assault of a stage show. Not only are they performing as hard as they ever have, but they are still having fun with it and have a huge catalog they aren’t afraid to flaunt. Pitchfork, as usual, doesn’t know when to accept professionalism when they hear it.

    We caught their show in Scottsdale Arizona (Phoenix) at the Roxy in May, and it was incredible. They’re a fun, sexy, funky bunch of mofos. I love this band more than ever after seeing ’em live. Thanks for posting a recording. Downloading.. can’t wait to hear it.
