Watch and listen: The Glands' last gig

Posted By on Tue, Jun 8, 2010 at 4:52 PM

Above, you'll see a recently-uploaded video of Athens pop faves The Glands tearing through "When I Laugh", a track from their decade-old self-titled record. The footage comes from a December 2003 show at Athens' Tasty World (which will soon be closing in its current locale).

The uploader is none other than Sloan Simpson of Southern Shelter, where he posts high-quality live audio files of (mostly) local acts. A few months ago, he posted the entire Glands show in streaming and downloadable mp3/FLAC form.

I was at this show as a fresh-faced college lad, and it was oh so wonderful. I had a belly full of booze and the world in front of me. Now, my face is less fresh, and the world isn't so much in front of me as it is all around, closing in. But at least I've still got that belly full of booze. My glass is half full! Of booze.

And, by the way, I mean 'last' as in 'most recent', not 'final'. (There are rumors!)

(Thanks to The Day Jobs for the tip.)
