It's weird, while I've been at shows where The Movies were on the bill, I never got to see them until now. I was familiar with the name, but never really got the opportunity to see them play live or listen to their music. However, with last Friday's performance at the final night of "Exposure", this has happily been remedied.
Keeping with the acoustic theme of these past four Friday nights at Where Gallery, The Movies frontman Tim James played half of the set solo, and the second half with bandmate Marcos Lopez on guitar. It was a short set, due to the fact that Mr. James had to be at work soon after he was done playing (he can be heard at various intervals counting down "I have to be at work in 20 minutes" "I have to be at work in 12 minutes" "I have to be at work in 5 minutes" - you get the idea) Regardless of the compacted set length, it was a good one showcasing some The Movies work.
This one came out pretty well, better than the recently posted Monolators recording, partially due to figuring out where the "sweet spot" was (the point in a room to best record and get the sound from), and should reflect how it sounded in the gallery that night.
