Nada Surf have announced the release of Live At The Neptune Theatre, a deluxe 3x LP package. The 21 track live album was recorded and mixed by John Goodmanson (Nada Surf’s Lucky, Sleater Kinney, Death Cab For Cutie) and recorded in March, 2012 at Seattle’s storied Neptune Theatre. The celebrated Brooklyn trio will play select shows this November in Washington, DC, New York City, and Toronto.
On Saturday, March 24, 2012, Nada Surf drove into the magical city of Seattle, WA in the midst of a US tour in support of the album The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy (Barsuk) and set up their gear at the Neptune Theatre. Days before, the band’s friend and producer John Goodmanson shared some insider information with the band about the venue: he happened to know that all the microphone wires in the Neptune went into a splitter box and a whole extra set headed down to the basement, which made it a perfect venue to set up gear to record a show. Would they like him to do that? The answer was yes! So after an extra long soundcheck to make sure everything was working, they took a break, and later that night took the stage to play a long rocking set. The band recently re-listened to the show and it sounded so good that they’ve decided to make it available to their fans. It’s only their second live album, after 2004’s Live In Brussels.
