Diane Cluck: September 20, 2019 Trans-Pecos

October 18, 2019

These days, Diane Cluck performs in NYC about once every eighteen months or so. Her last appearance in NY was in May of 2018 where she was backed into a late show and as a result her set that night was somewhat truncated. When we booked Diane for this year’s show at Trans-Pecos, there were no such limitations and this performance was undoubtedly the longest Diane Cluck show we’ve ever seen.

At Pecos last month, Diane was relaxed, playful, in good spirits, and thoroughly engaging. The set clocks in well over 90 minutes and the show contains plenty of banter, accepted requests, give and take with the engaged crowd, and two encores. Early in the set, Diane played tribute to her friend David Berman with a heartfelt cover of The Silver Jews “People”.

The exciting news is that Diane Cluck has fully recorded a new album due for release soon, which will be her first proper l.p. release since 2014’s Boneset. This night saw the performance of several of the new songs, the quality of which bodes well for this much anticipated album. The balance of the show was a nice sampling of the best material of Diane’s distinguished career and ultimately there really wasn’t much more that we could have asked for. Diane’s Northeast tour is complete, but we eagerly await her return perhaps for an album release show!

This set was recorded directly from the soundboard at a fairly low volume. The boosting and balance of the levels introduced some background noise into the sound (minor hiss mostly) but the mix and the sound quality is still quite excellent. Enjoy!

Diane Cluck: February 17, 2015 Trans Pecos – Flac/MP3/Streaming

Ever since we captured Diane Cluck‘s inspired performance at Joe’s Pub in early 2013, I’ve been trying to work with Diane on a show. This NYCTaper Presents event at Trans Pecos was the culmination of that desire and frankly it could not have gone any better. On a cold Tuesday night in Ridgewood Queens, Diane, Jeffrey Lewis and their curated opener Kid In The Attic filled up Pecos and each performer delivered an outstanding set. This was the final night of Diane and Jeff’s East Coast tour and the night had a celebratory feel. Diane’s setlist featured a nice career-spanning selection of material with an emphasis on her newest and perhaps most consistently excellent release Boneset. After the main set when Diane asked for requests and a sharp fan asked for “The Turnaround Road”, the off-the-cuff version became my own personal highlight of the set. We are streaming it below. Afterwards, Diane was joined by Jeff for three songs before closing the show with perhaps her most well known song “Sara”. We thought that the show was over at that point but the still-packed crowd gave the performer an enthusiastic ovation and Diane returned for an encore. Diane Cluck will not be performing in the US until the Fall, but she will be on an extensive European tour in April and throughout May, dates here.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards on a stand at the front of the stage and mixed with a board feed. I didn’t raise my live levels enough during this set so that when the levels were boosted in post there are some artifacts of the process — mainly some hiss at quieter moments. Otherwise, the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
