I looked at a lot of audience recordings before deciding on the perfect show for the podcast. The following concert was a very excellent recording and almost made the cut. One thing about this particular recording that gave it some extra bonus points was the creativity the taper used in describing the band. Unfortunately he left out "woman of my dreams" next to Alison Mosshart's description.
Allison Mosshart - lead vocals, guitar, tamborine, cigarettes and attitude
Dean Fertita - lead guitar, keys, backing vox
Jack Lawrence - lead bass, ocular fashion, backing vox, drums
Jack White - rock god
The Dead Weather - Ottawa, ON - 7/19/09
Also check out the taper's blog for an awesome Top 10 Covers of 2009 list.

New Downloads #6 - Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds - 2008-10-26 - Last Chance for Change - VCU - Richmond, VA
One last election posting before it's all over. This is a great recording of Dave and Tim playing in their home state of Virginia. As Dave puts it, he's a "real" Virginian and he's voting for Barack.

Some kind soul out there has put together a Dave Matthews Band Best of 2007 Compilation which I am highly recommending for all DMB fans to download. The compilation, titled "Little Things To Get You By", includes 7 CDs worth of music totally 85 tracks. These include some rare cover songs such as Melissa and Black Water, all the new songs from this tour, lots of old favorites, and a few rarities like #34 and Halloween.

Complementing the last podcast of DMB at the Gorge I am featuring the opening act from 2 of the 3 nights, Robert Randolph and the Family Band. The taper is the same as the DMB shows so you can expect a really great sounding recording and as a bonus a few members from DMB get on stage for the 09-02 set.

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival held annually in Manchester, TN is easily the most recorded music festival on the planet. Not only does this festival show case some of the best music around, but most of the bands are kind enough to allow fans to record their performances.
This year was definitely no exception featuring many of the usual suspects such as Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, Gov't Mule, and Widespread Panic as well as some new comers to the festival like the Police, Wolfmother, and the White Stripes. It is pretty cool to see how varied the line-up is each year and great to see the number of fans that continue to make the trip. There are a lot more shows out there from Bonnaroo 2007 so if you want to find more check out bt.etree.org and archive.org. UPDATE: A nearly complete list of all shows can be found here.
Gov't Mule 6/16/07 - NAK700 FOB - Best AUD source - KILLER!
The Police - Bonnaroo - Manchester, TN - Schoeps mk4
Widespread Panic 2007-06-17 Bonnaroo (dpa4023's)
Wolfmother2007-06-17Bonnaroo Which Stage Jimbo 4v
The White Stripes - Manchester, TN - 6-17-07 (DPA 4061s)
Here are a few Bonnaroo compilation mix CDs, which are a good way to hear some more great live music.
Thanks to all the bands for making this year's Bonnaroo possible!

I have made the decision to add a new category to my blog and I am calling it "New Downloads". This category became necessary to me when I found that I didn't have time to create a podcast for all the great new shows I've been downloading, but I still wanted to have the ability to share them. Especially now that summer is rolling around the tapers have been very busy and live shows are coming in much more frequently.
For the first posting in this category I decided to make it a themed post around the Wakarusa festival near Lawrence, KS. For those of you unfamiliar with this festival it is basically a 4 day camping, music, and arts festival which brings together lots of great bands from many genres, but primarily focusing around the jam band scene. Below you will find links to performances by Widespread Panic, Les Claypool and his Fancy Band, North Mississippi Allstars, and more.
As always you can support these artists by buying CDs and watching them live!

Ozomatli 2007-06-09 - Wakarusa Music Festival - Neumann KM140
Medeski, Martin & Wood - 6/10/2007 Wakarusa - Onstage KM143

Yonder Mountain String Band 6-8-07 Revival Tent, Wakarusa Festival, Lawrence, KS
North Mississippi Allstars 2007-06-07 Wakarusa Lawrence, KS.flac24
A special thanks goes out to all the tapers for making this possible.
