Tech Notes: No DAE. Digital transfer of uncompressed pcm wav audio via USB (real time). I'm a purist. I do not yet trust myself to do any EQing or apply any other
editing techniques. The volume could use a tiny boost but I'm not going to touch it. If you are really into this band and really into editing please feel free to master it a
bit but drop me a quick email first if you would just so I know what's up.

Show Notes: I wasn't sure what I was in for but if you get the chance to check out this band you should go for it. I can't even put what I saw on stage last night into
words so I'm not even going to try. Small bar, noisy crowd...a mic stand is going to be my next purchase but as it is this is a nice audience tape in my opinion. They
got into town late from Chicago and had to soundcheck with everyone standing there. With seven people and who knows how many different instruments that takes
a while. I think it was just after 1:30am by the time the encore was over.

Please excuse the fanboy to the right of me (woo! woo!) and the fangirls behind me. I didn't want to be an ass and say "Please chill out I'm trying to get you a decent
copy of the show." After the show one of the girls asked if they could get a copy. I said yeah no problem you're probably on the recording a lot...she felt bad even
though I wasn't going out of my way to be a prick.

A special thanks to P.J.P. who is letting me get on my taping feet using his SSs. Someday, somehow...I will repay him for his kindness.

This seed goes out to a cool vegan I know over in Brooklyn.
