November 4, 2012

Our friends in Oneida were a late but welcome addition to the “Megafaun and Friends” day show at Hopscotch Music Festival, and as usual, nobody knew what to expect in terms of the setlist. Joined by a number of special guests throughout the set (including the ubiquitous man-of-the-festival, the drummer Chris Corsano), Oneida filled the streets of downtown Raleigh, NC with their complex improvisational post-rock. For this show, we were treated to a rendition of the band’s LP Preteen Weaponry, which this site also recorded a live performance of back in June of last year. As we eagerly await their next album, A List of the Burning Mountains, out on November 13, this just-over-half-hour set of another of the band’s classic albums whetted our appetites for what they have in store for us in just under two weeks.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed provided by the day’s hardworking sound team, plus Schoeps MK5 omnidirectional microphones. The sound is excellent, after some initial adjustments to the board mix. Enjoy!

Oneida plays their record release show at Secret Project Robot on December 1.

    Isn’t this Preteen Weaponry? I just listened to some of Part 2, and it sounds a lot like PTW. Not that I’m complaining. I’ve been wanting more live versions.

    It could be. If it is, please let me know. I fully admit to being horrible with their song titles.
