Photos & Reviews of Quiet Company taping

The Austinist says:
The theme of the day was LOVE, as proclaimed by the large letters shining in front of the drum kit. The crowd reflected this love by chiming in on almost every chorus. However, the clear audience favorite was the lead song “How Do You Do It” off the band’s latest EP Songs For Staying In – evidenced by stage rushing followed by delighted group singing.

Brazo’s Martin Crane talks about taping the show

Martin Crane did an interview for the Austin Girl Music Guide blog and he talked abut taping the band’s performance for Satellite Sets (then called ACL Stage Left).

Crane said: “You can’t see the audience. All you can see is yourself. And you can hear yourself so well that it’s terrifying. In front of you they have these cameras that swing down to get shots of your face. So as a singer you’re standing there looking out and the cameras swing down, and they have this way of moving that’s just organic – like a dinosaur eye peering down, about to eat you or something. … It’s a little unsettling. We eventually got into it. It was really great, though. That place … it’s such an old stage. It’s seen so many of my favorite people play on that stage. It was kind of an honor to be able to do that.”
