You know your band rocks when a dog comes on stage to thank each member (~45:50). @rivulets live today in Spain: http://livestre.am/5eWn0

dammit Rivulets is playing in Belgium on the 27th, but I don't think I'll be able to make it...

I say yes. I'd have to PM him to know whether he got this one, though.

Also, Alan Sparhawk on Ones and Sixes: Beauty and Noise (from Under The Radar magazine).

Good thing the uploader took the time to type "slowcore band from Duluth", huh. What would we have done otherwise! :D Seriously though, people used to type "lowtorrent"... Unfortunately, a %low% search doesn't help matters, even if you select "search title and torrent filename only".

According to a tweet by Mixtape Methodology and re-tweeted by, LOW......Jason Molina wrote songs to record with LOW, but gave the demos to fans instead.

......there is a quest to find the demos.

My kind of audience. I mean, I'd probably hate half the people there anyway, but large audiences are ass, and festivals are the death of cooliosity.

I just posted a taper alert on bt-dimeadozen-org.

Bytor Peltor 02.10.2016 03:21 PM

Monday night, I saw LOW play Walter's Downtown in Houston. This was my first time see LOW in almost 13 years, since they last played Houston during the 'Trust' tour. Walter's Downtown has a record store inside and I got to visit with Alan for a few moments while he was flipping the bins.

There was no opening act, just LOW playing two sets with a 20 minute break between the two:

Set 1
 


Mimi handed me her list for Set 2
 


At one point, Alan did his best Jimi Hendrix playing guitar with his teeth.
 


Mimi's singing was as beautiful as ever.

I didn't realize my inbox was full. Apologies to anyone who tried to send me a message. I've now cleared all possible space.

Bytor Peltor, it makes me happy to know you got to see Low. I know they hadn't visited your town in a long time. Thanks for sharing your experience and all those pictures as well (awesome set-list!).

Brian John Mitchell from Silber Media has posted a few spot-on obversations about LOW as a live band these days and the importance of Tom Herbers as a superlative soundman:

hipster_bebop_junkie 02.11.2016 10:33 PM

Alan's been doing the Hendrix move for a while now. I like this picture very much (taken at Deleste Festival, by Fran Callabuig Miralles):
 

Bytor Peltor 02.14.2016 10:03 AM

^^^didn't realize Alan had been doing this. I picked up his solo guitar album at the show : )

I found it a little odd the writer said, "As part of what seems to be a never-ending tour behind Ones and Sixes (they kick off a month-long run in Anchorage, Alaska on January 15)."

The album was released 5 months ago and the band didn't come close to playing the South their first time out. Denver was the closest they played to Texas. I'm sure LOW fans in: Atlanta, Nashville, Alabama, New Orleans, Arkansas and Texas were all happy they hit the road again.

That's an awesome bill! Low will be visiting the netherlands as well in June but so far it's only a festival so I'll probably won't be seeing them.

About Tom Herbers:
I would love to hear a Low album that's produced by him. The albums he did for Dark Dark Dark are so beautiful. Even though I played them to shreds already, they still sound fresh and new every time I listen to them.
