So it was a busy weekend and you should expect a lot of posts this week, but first something from last month that is overdue.
So Percussion played a show with Dan Deacon last month in NYC for the Ecstatic Music Festival. It was a lot of fun, and you may have caught their performance here. Now the video for the complete performance by So Percussion leading up to their collabortation with Dan is up and it looks and sounds great. Recorded on January 20th, 2011. Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski and Eric Beach perform with Ian Rosenbaum sitting in for Jason Treuting who had a baby that day. You'll watch Josh lead everyone in the audience in singing "Happy Birthday" to baby Elsie & Co. in the beginning of the video. Grey McMurray joins in on electric guitar.
