In May 2015 Shield Patterns was invited to play the WGT festival in Leipzig, Germany. The venue was beautiful, the audience was generous, the sound and production was perfect. Thanks to the venue's sound engineer Steffen Tielcke we managed to record the whole performance. Steffen also mixed the recording for us and we decided it was something we'd like to share with the world.
We are offering the whole show as a free or pay what you can download via our bandcamp page.
We'd like to extend our deepest thanks to Michael from WGT for inviting us to play, to Steffen for his work on the live sound and mixing and to Patrick from Wingstop Booking. If you happened to be present at the show we'd also like to thank you for your warmth and kindness and for being a part of a wonderful experience.
