Math & Physics Club – 2006-10-14

October 15th, 2006

Always bring your second recording device. Always.

If I had brought my JB3 to the show last night I could have easily gotten a soundboard feed and this was one show where that would have been very helpful. The Sunset Tavern is a bar and people will pay the seven dollar cover charge to go there and talk while all the bands play. Color me confused because I don’t understand this practice. Why these people refuse to go to a bar where there isn’t a cover charge escapes me completely.

That said, I love Math & Physics Club so goddamn much. This is the type of pop music that should be made forever and ever without pause. Charles’ vocals remind me heavily of Jason Korzen (Barcelona, Sprites) but with that soft sheen that you get from singers like Stuart Murdoch (Belle & Sebastian). It really is something quite soothing and beautiful. Too bad the drunk crowd was too loud for anyone to hear anything. The beginning of the set was very hard to hear but it got better near the middle when people either quieted down or left. I really wish I had brought my JB3. So angry.

    These blathering idiots need to be put on an island…

  3. Ryan Says:

    Yep, JB3 from the headphone out feed on the board works wonders at the Sunset… as long as the sound guy doesn’t mute you three or four times mid-set.

    Thanks for the live MAPC! The audience is annoying but still this is great. I don’t care much for Boat so I won’t fill up my HD with this.

    Well I’m glad someone enjoyed the Boat recording. I’d never heard of them and thought they were ok. Wasn’t sure if anyone was even interested in them.

    I like Math and Physics Club and the little I’ve heard of Eux Autres I like. But I’m not really feeling the Boat vibe. Maybe I just don’t get it?

  15. tim Says:

    it’s not for everyone….

  16. Jason Says:

    If you’re ever taping at the Sunset again see if you can’t setup a board patch. The house soundguys are all pretty accomodating as long as you get permission from the band, and they can set you up with a separate mix than what’s coming through the PA so you’re getting more guitars in the mix or whatever. All you need are two 1/4″ to RCA cables. I never use microphones in that room.

  17. Brian Says:

    Yeah, the soundguy even told me that. That’s why I was so mad that I didn’t bring my JB3. Next time, though. Next time.
