    Zoo Animal - Live in Concert

    2012-06-09 Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetary Minneapolis,MN

    You’ll notice Holly Newsom referencing the heat in-between songs…it was a hot day in June, and a great concert with Low & Zoo Animal.  Featuring a lot of material from their most recent EP Departure, which is fantastic - pick it up at their Bandcamp site. Thanks to Zoo Animal for permission to post!

    Sharon Van Etten - Live in Concert

    2012-02-18 

    Cedar Cultural Center Minneapolis, MN 

    Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 96khz 24bit Wav -> 320 kbps MP3 

    LOVE the new Sharon Van Etten record, and her previous Epic was a big favorite from last year. I was wondering if her live show would hold up compared to the albums - my fav aspect of Tramp is Sharon’s voice harmonizing with herself.  Luckily, her backing band features a great female backup vocalist / keyboard player. Great show with goofy banter in between.

    Thanks to Sharon for the quick chat after the show & permission to post this recording :)

    Recorded on a Tascam DR-07 mkii (XY Mic Config) 44.1khz 16bit Wav —-> 320 kbps MP3

    Really enjoyed this set from the Deathsquads. In the connected spectrum of Gayngs / Marijuana Deathsquads / Polica , MD occupy on the ‘Intense, loud’ end. 2 drummers, 2 vocalists w/ various effects, and Ryan conducting / composing on the fly.

    Bambi and the Tin Man 
    2011-12-03 
    7th Street Entry Minneapolis, MN (opening for Gangians)

    Nice dynamic set here - they normally perform with vocalist Beth Bambery (also of Miami Dolphins), so this is a unique show with only singer/guitarist Nicholas Larkins on vocals.  Dark, loud/soft, brooding rock.

    Young Galaxy - Live in Concert 
    2011-11-26 
    Triple Rock Social Club Minneapolis, MN (opening for Austra)

    Some nice ‘big’ rock from Canada. Lead singer Catherine McCandless’ voice reminded me of  Chrissie Hynde’s at times.
