Sandwitches - 2010-02-09 - Great American Music Hall SF

Here's my recording of the Sandwitches set from their Great American Music Hall show.  I enjoyed their set, and will enjoy it even more once any of you who download the files also pledge to check out their upcoming album, as I plan to do once it's out!

Alternate version, last three tracks only (FLACs in zipfile)

I only know the names of the second and third tracks (Lightfoot and Relax At The Beach), as I believe all the other songs are off their forthcoming "Mrs Jones Cookies" album, which you'll be able to pre-order here.

There's also some videos I've upped on YouTube:

Thee Oh Sees - 2010-07-01 - Eagle Tavern SF

The final 2010 performance I have of Thee Oh Sees.
Enter one of the most exciting bands around, and my first personal exposure to the fabtastic Thee Oh Sees.  Prior to this I have not been much of a garage fan (the joke was that the "b" is silent), but I am now...the only thing silent now is any criticism about just going out and having a slamming good time listening to some good old rock n' roll.

I have no idea why I haven't put this up until now, at the time I was so blown away by the subsequent Serra Bowl show that I hadn't given this show the attention it deserved.  The first seven songs provided one hell of a wallop...only the relatively slower-tempoed 'Crack In Your Eye' in the set to provide a bit of release for the garage onslaught.

Recorded with dual Edirols R-09HR and Sonic Studio DSM mics. 

The video linked below will give you a good idea of the sheer energy one of their shows produces, and the Eagle Tavern is about as good a place to see them as you could come up with.  It's the kind of place where you have to go through the stage to get to the bathroom.

Ty Segall - 2011-02-09 - Great American Music Hall

Quite a few updates coming your way, including a couple of Thee Oh Sees shows, including their headlining spot here, but first wanted to start in on the one of the opening acts, one that I shamefully missed when he played a free show at Serra Bowl, so was glad to finally get a chance to catch him and his group play.  

"Girlfriend" in particular rocked the house, check out the link to watch Ty and band get everybody hopping around like mad.

Any IDs of songs I don't have identified greatly appreciated!
