Alright, I’m new here so let me introduce myself. My name is Andy Brey and I have a hobby. I like to record live music. Call me a taper, if you will. So, Mr. AIV and I hatched a crazy idea. We are going to embark on a collaborative effort here wherein I occasionally will “guest-post” some live music from around the Tampa Bay area. One caveat before we get started: with a live recording there will be a few gremlins here and there, so I make absolutely no claims with respect to perfection. After all, I am an amateur and also like to drink beer when I go to shows.

Have Gun, Will Travel
June 27, 2009 – Saturday
New World Brewery, Ybor City, Florida
Citrus Circuit Tour

Source: Peluso CEMC6 (stereo pair, x/y, cardiod caps) > H4

The Citrus Circuit tour rolled into town on this fine, hot Saturday night in Ybor. The other bands that played that night included Truckstop Coffee, The Takers and Lauris Vidal. I pulled a few songs from the HGWT set because I think this is a good representation of what they sound like live. Additionally, Mark at the New World does a great job with the sound. I recorded the show with a pair of Peluso CEMC6 cardiod capsules put up at the back of the room. For the posting here, I’ve converted to MP3 from hi-fidelity wavform files (this is just to save on bandwidth). There’s more to this set, but here are a few songs played from the Postcards album prior to its release and two classics.

1. Tuning/Banter
2. Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
3. Sons and Daughters
4. When We Were Kings
5. Salad Days
6. Come All Ye Sinners

I’ve got lots of other recordings that I hope to put up here to share with everyone. Maybe some Will Quinlan, Thomas Wynn or Lauris Vidal will be next. Let me know in the comments what you think. As always, please go out and support live, local music.

  1. I vote for the Takers. I hit the citrus circuit tour last summer in Lake Worth, but the show started early and the Takers played first so I only caught two songs of there set.

    Vote #2 is for Will Quinlan.

  2. Ummm Yea ive got to go with Will Quinlan with an easy hands down #1 spot on this one.. Easily one of if not the best artist ive picked up on since 9B started. I keep hoping he will be playing live while im in St.Pete visiting but no luck so far.

  3. Hey Andy, thanks for the songs they sound GREAT! I hope to see more of your work on 9B. My vote goes to Lauris Vidal, I saw the set live it was terrific.

  4. @brandon, yeah, will q and the diviners do not play too many shows these days, but we are gonna be full band at skippers smokehouse on saturday, september 25 8pm, for the skippers 30th anniversary party, and we’ll be playing a duo set opening for david dondero at new world brewery on oct 29.

  5. These recordings sound great. I don’t care who you put up next, all would be awesome. On a selfish personal note, if you got any of Truckstop Coffee’s set, I’d like to get a copy if possible. Hit me up at
