Damn! Yet another presale that was closed when it opened. Nothing available at 10:01. As we say in the States, WTF?

EDIT/UPDATE: I went back just to check at 11:15 and of course tickets were available. Got 3rd row center Loge. Go figure.

Just got two tickets for Monday's show. Loge row A. Bringing my Avett Brothers-loving daughter to the show. We should definitely do a London style meet-up before the show.

Correct. Besides audio, I'm also thinking about video, which would be very cool with the wheel...

I'm thinking about bringing my HD camcorder, but I'm scared of being busted. It's pretty conspicuous, and the Beacon is not known for being friendly to tapers. I'll give it a try at Wellmont first and see what happens. Also, I'll record the audio separately and dub over the crappy camcorder audio.

The allure of capturing the Spinning Songbook on video is very enticing.

Nice Ryan Adams clip. Am not up on his stuff, but that's a nice song and you got a good sound on it. Bring on the spinning songbook!

why thank you OTIS! yes, that old JVC recorder was not killer on the video, but the audio is stunning, yes? sorry for that glitch at 1:37. i don't think it is on my original.
