Recorded front and center, right on the barricade. You’re going to hear some…interesting…comments from my drunk friend who was next time me, particularly in Set 2. Sorry. Otherwise, I think it should be a pretty clear recording. It all sounded solid while I tracked it. Enjoy!

I don’t feel like doing a whole “write up,” but damn, what a great show. The 1st set was one of the best 1st sets I’ve seen them do and I finally got to see them do the Heckler live! It was amazing to see Tim and Danny drumming together. I don’t know how it will come across just through the recording, since you can’t see who is doing what parts, but seeing them go back and forth and play in unison was great. Tim had a huge smile on his face the whole night. Also, during Bastards, Tim got up from his drumset, went to Ler’s mic, and thanked everyone for the support “while he was down.” I’ve never seen/heard of Tim talking at a show, so that was a special moment. So thanks Tim!

NOTE Thank you TopHatTapes for lending me the mics!
Taped by RockTheMullet

Recorded from front row, stage left, directly in front of Les. I got on to the floor right before Primus started, so the first track doesn’t sound great because I was getting the mics situated. After that, it sounds pretty good I think. The 2nd set sounds a lot better than the first set, mostly because the guy who was screaming throughout Set 1 (you’ll know who I am talking about) moved after Set 1.
The band sounded great and they really put a lot of work in to the Wonka set. They made the songs their own. I hope they record a studio version of the songs.

Les Claypool – Bass
Larry LaLonde – Guitar
Tim Alexander – Drums

Skerik – Saxaphone

Recorded from front row center, mics clipped to hat, pointed directly at the drum kit. This recording is somewhat lacking up-front vocals, because the vocals were run through the p.a. system. What you hear on this recording is primarily the equipment on the stage,without benefit of the p.a. system. Also (because I was front-row on the barrier) you get a few screamers, clappers, etc every now and then. I recall a balloon bouncing off one of the mics during Southbound Pachyderm. It happened again later in another song, though I don’t remember which
