[Almanac Live Archive Project] Volume Two

Posted on March 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm | 1 Comment

old school nacUnsurprisingly, the second installment of my Almanac Live Archive project is a bit later than I’d planned. I was shooting for weekly, resigned myself to monthly, and ended up hitting the 6 week mark. Ah well. The third won’t be as long a wait, I promise (ok, not really).

In the first volume, I re-shared live songs & sets from Chisel in 1994, The Church in 1988, Fugazi in ’95, Ida at MFABoston in 2005, The Karl Hendricks Trio from 2004, Versus in 2000, Low & Pedro the Lion in 2005, Ted Leo in 2004, (nearly) the entire 1992 Sub Pop Vermonstress Fest, and a London set from The Wedding Present in ’92.

This time I’ve re-posted and zipped up old Almanac sets from The National, Nada Surf, Rilo Kiley, Crayon, the Softies, The Lucksmiths, Ladybug Transistor, & Pipas. Go on and grab ’em, and check back for the third installment in the series sometime… soon… ish….

    Bradley, just checked out this Almanac of yours for the first time today and I really admire what you’re doing. It’s great to see someone so passionate about music putting so much effort into something like this, out of pure enjoyment. We hope to be featured on here in the future. 🙂
