Zammuto - Live in Athens, GA

5 tracks, 21.21 zammuto on July 16, 2012 16:33

Here are 5 songs recorded in Athens, GA on June 21, 2012 at the beautifully rebuilt Georgia Theater. It was part of our opening set for Explosions In the Sky, who we can not say enough good things about.

It was kind of a magical night. lots of spontaneous outbursts from the crowd... We were in a strange headspace given that we had driven from Miami overnight before (a 700 mile drive)... so not our best performances but we definitely had fun in a sureal kind of way! I think it's safe to say we had the biggest Zebra Butt fan in the world in the audience that night...

The last song emerged as a real favorite at the shows. It's called 'Battle Hymn of the Republic' AKA 'The Greatest Autoharp Solo of All Time'. It makes more sense with the video, but stands on it's own surprisingly well.

Sean Dixon on drums, Mikey Zammuto on bass, Gene Back on organ, keys and guitar and your's truly on guitar, vocals and Moog Slim Phatty mono-synth.

Thanks to Matt and Colm from the venue for mixing the show.

The recordings were made by Sloan Simpson using a Neumann KM-184, with a Grace Design Lunatec preamp, run Line In to a Sony M10 recorder. He was standing near the soundboard with the mics on a stand about 40 ft from the stage. Thank you, Sloan, for sharing these with us... such a pleasant surprise to get these in my inbox.
