The Augustines wear Necklaces to the Roundhouse
We hung out with Joe Hawley, FOH engineer for Brooklyn-based US indie rock band the Augustines, who's heavily energetic show and intense crowd interaction required some neat microphone trickery to present a seamless show...
Lead singer/guitarist Billy McCarthy and multi-instrumentalist Eric Sanderson rounded off the show by performing an intimate set in the round – right in the middle of the audience. With acoustic guitars, vocals and a trumpet, they needed all the mics to be attached to them prior to venturing into the crowd, so their DPA d:screet Necklace mics and d:vote 4099T trumpet mic suited the job perfectly for this intimate Augustines performance in the round.
