Arts, Beats & Eats Festival
Rig was probably DAT recorder > PC > Soundforge > CD. .
Ripped the CD to WAV, then mastered/EQ/Widen/Limited in Protools.
Really nice DBT show from the Southern Rock Opera tour, though they
were previewing songs from Decoration Day already. They went on at
2:30pm after opening for Alice Cooper in Rockford, IL the night before.
The recording is really nice. The highs get a little washy/phasy at times but
I couldn't do much with it. I'd say it's a solid B.
Arts, Beats & Eats has since moved to Royal Oak. The Phoenix Amphitheater
is an outdoor venue that sits on top of a parking garage in downtown Pontiac,
Lots of space to stretch out or get up close. I don't think they've had shows
there for years, but they had some good ones.
Also posting the Wilco & Steve Earle sets from AB&E 1999.
