Despite being sick the last couple of days, I’ve been on a roll with regard to editing additional live recordings and getting them up on this here site.
Tritonium CD Release Party at Gallery Cabaret
This live performance was recorded on June 9, 2012 at Gallery Cabaret in Chicago, Illinois. The occasion was the CD release party for Tritonium, Gunnelpumpers third album. The evening opened with a set by Black Hole Trio, and ended with a performance by Origin of Animal.
Phyllis’ Musical Inn (8/30/2012)
A live recording of Gunnelpumpers at Phyllis’ Musical Inn in Chicago on August 30, 2012. We were the only group playing that night, and performed two sets. Excluding the pescatarians in the group, the lot of us ate a lot of fine barbecue between sets next door at The Smoke Daddy and probably overdid things in that respect.
Gallery Cabaret (1/26/2013)
One of our best shows. This live performance was recorded on January 26, 2013, at Gallery Cabaret in Chicago, Illinois. The evening opened with a sets from Christina Trulio and whitewolfsonicprincess. Bassist Douglas Johnson, who organized the event, performed with all three groups.The Gunnelpumpers set was one of the loudest on record, and prompted complaints from some of Gallery Cabaret’s neighbors. It was also the first Gunnelpumpers set to feature two electric guitarists, which might explain the roudness. This was the last time we worked with soundman Garrett Lane at the Gallery Cabaret, since he and the bar had a parting of ways not long after this show. He was always a big proponent of what we do, as evidenced by his “God Bless the Gunnelpumpers!” at the end of Track 4 Fabula Rasa.
The Whistler (2/17/2013)
This live performance was recorded on February 17, 2013, at The Whistler in Chicago, Illinois. The evening opened with the Gunnelpumpers set, followed by one from Crown Larks, who were busy at the time recording their debut CD.
Phyllis’ Musical Inn (3/1/2013)
This live performance was recorded on March 1, 2013, at Phyllis’ Musical Inn in Chicago, Illinois. The evening opened with a blistering set from Department of Revenge.
