I was at temple on Wed and church last night. Sound was very different in both, but I didn't think it sounded bad at the temple as seems to be the consensus- the reverb was just very intense.

either way, both great shows.

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2011 1:49 PM

@12:29 the setlist is correct, hope drone is the jam they start off with when they come on stage and tune their guitars/play with feedback and the word "Hope" is on the video screen.

They were amazing last night and it was a really great venue to see them in. The film projections were also great.

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2011 1:53 PM

The show last night was outstanding show. The acoustics were great and the venue is a great place for a show. The show was actually louder in the back than the front, but it was clear everywhere.

However, if you do not show up an hour early, don't roll up on the front rows and ask if that seat is taken. Yes that fucking seat is taken. Here is a razor, shave your beard.

One little hint if you are bold. Wait until after the opener, and then go sit in the middle aisle. You might get stepped on, but you will sit up close.

@2:08- GY!BE play in virtually complete darkness and flashes were not allowed. the live shots were all taken at a 1/4 a sec or less exposure (some over 1 second)so loss of focus is unavoidable. look at other live shots of them and you'll see similar results.

Posted by greg C | March 18, 2011 2:18 PM

"Albanian" is a track they've played live for years, but has never been recorded officially on any release. The drumming on it is fantastic.

Merch: They had all 4 releases on vinyl for sale for $20 each, 1 shirt design for $20, and the poster-not sure how much that was-I believe $20. They also had a table full of books/pamphlets/postcards/etc for sale-politically related and otherwise.

Let me see, I am going to sit in the back because I don't want to walk 30 feet to find a seat up front. Of course the seats are taken. Don't you think the people in the back already checked if there were seats up front?

this post is too late because your ass should already be standing in line at the church so you can get a pew up front, BUT, try and take a special brownie or rice krispie treat. no smoking in the church for sure.

and last night was friggin' amazing. show of my year i think. i talked to some kid who'd seen them in la and at the masonic temple and he said the church show blew him away. i was blown away. we were all blown the fuck away. 'twas a religious experience i tell you.

NYC finally sees a band that is thoughtful, pays attention to the world outside their bubble and makes music that reflects depth and the potential that still remains, despite the seemingly pandemic malaise, in the Western World.

Of course, they're Canadian. But still! How exciting for little ol' Brooklyn-----musicians that dont hide behind disaffected non-chalance and "we're different because we all dress the same and listen to the same music" conformity complexes. It is ok to be smart and to CARE about the things that are happening outside of your collapsing to-scale sno-globe. To read books about the dynamics of social progressivism. To try, just try, to make a difference. Hippies get a lot of derision nowadays, but at least they tried.

Thank you Godspeed.....if only you could move to NYC and help re-direct it, home to the most massive waste of potential energy ever committed, to a place we can all be proud of again.

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2011 6:46 PM

If not show of the year, I definitely agree that the Church was venue of the year. Easy in, easy out, people were quiet.

For folks going tonight, you need to take an elevator to the bathroom.

Love the Terminal crapcan praisers thinking they saw the best of the week of shows and not actually the worst. It makes me happy to see in this day and age there are people who settle for less and find ways to feel good about it.

And yes, go fuck your mother with a turkey baster full of hummus.

@646, holy fucking shit.

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2011 7:20 PM

thought the church show was good, but I don't understand those who claim that the sound was excellent. It is a beautiful venue, but the reverb is out of control, and does not suit the band. The echo virtually wiped out the definition to the songs. 'Albanian' was the biggest victim, but they all suffered. I know the band's music very well, and have seen them many times, but still found certain riffs and segments very hard to make out, even when seeking them.

That said, I did think the Church sounded better than the Masonic Temple. It is, however, a pity that godspeed could not have played a venue that is built for music. While it will obviously never happen, and I doubt they would want it to, I can't help but think that it would be great to see them in a venue like Zankel Hall...

@ 1:20 The sound on the 15th was great, but the Brooklyn Masonic has no sound baffling, so I am fucking deaf this week. Pack the place with people the sound is not bad. Half full, the sound is horrendous. Tuesday's show was amazing. Wished I had bought tix for the Church shows though.

i was at the church show pictured here.

such a great great show. there was soooo much reverb though from the church. it made everything sound super epic and huge except for the drums which were super muddy. there was also some weird timing issues with the drums a couple times (they are all super talented musicians so i'm assuming maybe their monitors were having issues .. who knows ... maybe it's b/c they have tempo changes in their songs).

the film projections were amazing. definitely saw guy from fugazi/rites of spring checking out merch.

I was not at any of these shows, but.....stop shitting on people who went to T5 and had a good time. I'm not a fan of that venue, but I would go there for a band I truly loved if no other options were available and would make the most of it.

If someone enjoyed their time seeing Godspeed at T5 (and it seems like most did), you have no right to tell them they're less important or that they "settled." Seriously y'all, grow up and chill out and eat some hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 2:30 AM

I'm a huge fan of this band and someone who has seen them a number of times in the past AND who unlike I would guess anyone else commenting went to EVERY show this week. Yes call me whatever name you like. I can tell you without a doubt that people like 1:12am did not go to Terminal 5 or the other shows and are just making comments to fuck with and annoy people. Or just went to the Terminal 5 show and is bitter about it.
I would rank the shows like in this order

1)Church Night 1
2)Church Night 2
3)Masonic Night 2
4)Masonic Night 1
5)Terminal 5

Honestly the first 4 were all close in terms of quality. The church shows were truly special though. Terminal 5 was really a distant from the others. To say the sound was comparable there is just flat out laughable. Not to mention complete and utter nonsense statements like Efrim totally brought it more there. I guess if you only went to Terminal 5 then you don't know what you missed but I would feel bad for you. The level of playing, intensity, sound, atmosphere was so heads and tails above at the church. T5 was just a show. Church of St Paul was a special event.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 3:58 AM

Tonight's show at the church was nearly cancelled. I mean thisclose. Complaints about the volume from the church hierarchy. Moment of the day today was when parishioners came in and got to see David (guitar) and Sophie (violin) do an improve while people prayed. Spiritual indeed! All you folks standing online could've seen it, all you had to do was walk in and pray. As much as I loved this venue and its breathtaking beauty I feel the Masonic shows were more physically powerful. All the shows were recorded so let's hope for a live album real soon. For those that are hating on this band you have no idea what a tremendous performance you missed regardless of the venue. Their recordings, good as they are, simply don't compare to their live set.

I had a ticket for night 1 at the church but couldn't make it. I'm thankful I got to see the 2nd night at the Temple. Fantastic show indeed! I hope they keep it up and come back asap!

last night's setlist was the best of the whole week.

"Hey, can someone explain to me the whole break up as a result of the Iraq war thing? I don't understand why that would be a reason to break up a band. Thanks in advance."

apparently according to interviews they said that the music they wanted to make was more political b/c of the iraq war (or something along those lines) so they decided to focus on their other project, 'silver mt zion', which like half of godspeed is in and has singing. check out their album 'horses in the sky'.. it's pretty amazing and very political (but not in an obvious 16 year old wearing a che guavara tshirt kind of way).

^^^ not surprised. esp. since they seem to have done the T5 setlist, which killed as well.

almost the same setlist - they played rockets fall instead of moya before bbf.

i went to one show in the masonic temple, one show in the cathedral, and the show in the troc... i'm impressed how each show was a completely different experience

I didn't really read the comments here (maybe that's a good thing?), but did Friday's show seem shorter than the rest?

Friday's show was 2 hr 5 min. About the same as Temple #2, a little shorter than T5, Temple #1, Church #1. Not as short as D.C. last night.

Albanian for the 930 club show was about 30 minutes long...

Thanks, 1:10 (and any others). For some reason I thought it was around 1 hr 45 min or somewhere under 2 hrs. (I wasn't fully conscious throughout the whole set, since I'd been up 36 straight hours). Regardless, the show was awesome especially in such a setting as a church.
