VIDEO: Torche – “U.F.O.” / “Arrowhead” (Live at 529)

Taking photos and shooting video inside 529 is always a crap shoot. It’s dark, there’s not a whole lot of stage lighting and the band plays low to the ground, pushed up tightly against the crowd. If you aren’t in the first 2 or 3 rows, you can forget about capturing consistent quality footage. Still, you can’t beat the intimacy of the joint.

Here’s a video of Torche cranking out two of my favorite jams from last year’s stellar Songs for Singles EP. The original footage came out too dark so I brightened the shit out of it and added some grain. Overall, it’s not a bad effect. It sort of has a ’70s Super 8 quality to it at times; a little weathered and perfect for the sweaty, chaotic basement show vibe of that night.
