[a still from unartignyc video of entire show]

Beach Fossils began their set last Friday at 285 Kent midnight show at about 2 am. The band has been on tour since late October, and this was their homecoming party. As these “friends-only” shows tend to be, this night was loose, fun and at times inspired as heck. The show was really two shows — the first half a standard run-though Fossils favorites, including a nice mix of songs from both albums. The second half of the show began with the pairing of “Careless” and “Clash The Truth” — long versions with extended noise jams. It was after the introduction of Chris Hansell and the cover of anti-hardcore band No Trend (“Reality Breakdown”), that things began to get wild. For the balance of the set, the band played extra loose and the final two songs were crazy and cacophonous — and extremely fun and entertaining.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards mounted on the beam ten feet from the stage and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

This set was also recorded on video by UnArtigNYC, and those videos can be found [here].
