The Hudson Valley was lucky enough to get blessed with 2 Tonstartssbandht shows this year. The first, back in March, saw them promoting the material from their most recent album “Petunia”. That tour, like so many others, was riddled with COVID-related cancellations. On this night, as they wound down the tour cycle for that album, the brothers dug deep into their enormous catalog pulling out old gems, new favorites and even a choice cover. You will be hard pressed to find two nicer guys than Andy and Edwin so I was particularly happy to see that the audience had nearly doubled from their previous show. Grassroots promotion at its finest!
Tracking this recording was challenging. Talking with Edwin after the show I mentioned how, after the initial few songs, it felt like two distinct suites of music. Andy and Edwin were kind enough to email me a setlist (complete with timestamps!), but I’ve chosen to keep it tracked as the two suites with the individual track names noted in the text file. That’s what it felt like in the room and I try to keep these recordings as true to the experience I had in the moment as possible.
The brothers are taking some well deserved time off from the road but you can catch Andy playing duet with Ryley Walker on December 20th at Union Pool as part of the excellent line up put together by Island House recordings as a benefit for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
I recorded this from my usual spot by the soundboard with my MBHO’s and board feed from Tubby’s FOH engineer Will. Enjoy!
