Shea Stadium Archives

Shea Stadium (the Brooklyn DIY venue, not the former home of the Mets) opened an incredible new website today. Apparently the venue, which is important enough for a kid from Florida to have heard of it, has the reputation of recording just about every band that plays there. I guess the owners decided that the world needs to hear all of those recordings, so the website opened today with a massive archive! Check out more details on Altered Zones, or at their website. Bands recorded include Dead Gaze, Gobble Gobble, Future Islands, Small Black, Porcelain Raft, How to Dress Well and literally over 100 other bands. Recordings range from one song to an entire set, check out a sampling of the sessions from some of my favorite artists below.
