The Antlers Take Away

The Antlers - Two / Epilogue - A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

The Antlers: number one on "Best of '09" lists with Hospice and number one in our hearts. These guys can really do no wrong; from their strikingly beautiful and "hand-on-chin-inducing" live performances, to this stripped down La Blogoteque Take Away Show (See "Shiva" here.)

We had the immense pleasure of seeing The Antlers at the Bowery Ballroom last week, a show that not only solidified their number one spot on some of our end-of-year lists, but also got the attention of the New York Times who wrote a truthful and glowing review of the show. We at Stark, had many of the same thoughts as Jon Pareles (one of our favorite writers) enough so that we made this Blackberry note during the performance...
"Watching the Antlers live is like listening to Dark Side of the Moon in the dark on Sennheiser head is pretty much flawless and awe-inspiring at the same time."

The Tuesday after the show, we had the pleasure of catching up with frontman, Peter Silberman & Co. at a Brooklyn Bowl, Neon Indian show. What did we learn? They are fantastic on-stage, and even more fantastic off. Here's to a great band getting the break they deserve.

Happy Holidays from Stark!
