“Thanks for staying up so late with us,” the Brooklyn-based band Pterodactyl said after the recording. Well, the pleasure was on our side. But what time was it? Uhm, something after 4 a.m. What could have been a rather dull Monday night in early spring in Vienna was transferred into fun craziness. Jesse, Joe and Matt have not had a good night’s rest for a while. A bottle of whisky was making the round and beer bottles were rolling on the ground. I guess, we all probably felt a little worn out when gathering after the show at the nightly square next to vast stairs of the city library. Yet all were in a pretty good and relaxed mood. Small groups of people, who were attending the show, also made their way from the venue to the square. And some of them accompanied Pterodactyl’s performance with stamping and clapping. All those who know their normal noisy recordings might be aware of the challenge that it meant for the trio to perform “Bite Into Blood” and “Allergy Shots” in such a reduced setup. So with figuring out on-site what to play and how to play it, Pterodactyl did an impressive job at improvisation.
