I shot this randomly at a show I was working this past weekend running sound for the indie band Beirut. Im not sure if they realized how much work it took to get them sounding good, I think they were used to a lot of clubs that turn the PA on and leave the band to play. It was a tricky show because they had such a large array of acoustic instruments and so I had 6 different sensitive condenser mics on stage in a noisy room. Going into it I had only heard their music briefly from their album which I grabbed from emusic to get an idea of what to expect from the night. I barley took my fingers off of the faders during the show because every mic in there kept getting moved around for different instruments which was not really a bad thing, just kept me on my toes thats all.

Sorry, I didn't mean to start rambling about all of that, I'm sure it doesn't really mean much of anything to most of you reading this. To tell you the truth I'm not sure what the keyboard below is called, It's some sort of early electronic organ I know but I don't know which one. All I know is that the only thing they used it for was to pipe out solid bars worth of low end to fill in the bottom end of a few songs which is why I named the desktop 60hz which is right around where this thing was hitting hardest in the room. I just liked the colors of it and knew I wanted to post it asa desktop so here you go!
