My thoughts:
It was quite the festive atmosphere on this New Year's Eve Eve. Times Square was off the hook. The slush puddles were wide and deep
at every corner, sidewalks jammed with what seemed like a million people, and me running late. I barely got past a VERY thorough pat-down by
security - the man's hand was literally 1 inch from my recorder tucked inside a sock. Once inside, however, I got treated to an
amazing show. The crowd is very chatty and audible, especially during AT's quieter moments, but overall this is a very good listen.

This show was the opening act for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings who were off-the-charts freakin' awesome and will
be uploaded on a separate torrent.
