New Ting Ting Loft, live at the Renaissance Ballroom, RVA Noise Showcase, WRIR Party for the Rest of Us
Here's our recording of the live performance last Friday night at the WRIR party. It's pretty wild. The place was so loud before we started, the noise level of shouted conversations very high from the high ceilings and the loud bands in the ballroom, that by the time we played (in a separate, smaller room) our ears were shot. Maybe you can tell, but we really couldn't hear each other much and there's not any of the kind of dynamics we get at our weekly explorations at Tim's house. Here, it's all balls-to-the-wall noise...well, after all, it was a noise showcase. We do tend to be a bit more aggressive live. And it's only for 15 minutes. I was only playing hi-hat and snare, no full kit. The recording starts with a bit of ambience as we get settled, and the music doesn't kick in until about 2:35 or thereabouts. You can also stream or download it here. Probably best played loud!
