GUYS GUYS GUYS -
nyctaper, the incredible archivist of live music in New York (and the surrounding areas), has posted a terrific recording of the June 5th Mountain Goats show at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ.
It is pretty much imperative that you go download it and listen to the live cut of Tallahassee. I don’t think I’m exaggerating any when I say it will change your life. Also, for those of you who have been combing the internet for a good recording of Alpha Chum Gatherer, look no farther!
Also, for a bit of shameless self promotion, that’s my photo that was used for the post. Yaaaay.
Anyway, this is a link to the post, and the show can be downloaded as mp3 or FLAC. It can be streamed as well, if that’s what you’re into.
Lastly, just a friendly reminder to support The Mountain Goats, and, if you like what you see over at nyctaper, support them too!
Setlist includes: Pure Gold, Linda Blair was Born Innocent, The Diaz Brothers, Love Love Love, Heretic Pride, Nine Black Poppies, Dutch Orchestra Blues, Tallahassee, Wild Sage, 1 Samuel 15:23, The Recognition Scene, Song for Mark and Joel, Cobscook Bay, Alpha Chum Gatherer, Alpha Rats Nest, Woke Up New, The Fall of the Star High School Running Back, No Children, Alpha Omega, International Small Arms Traffic Blues, Ripple (Grateful Dead Cover), See America Right, California Song, and some excellent bits of banter.
