The Joy Formidable - 2017-03-02 - ONCE Ballroom, Somerville, MA

Lineage: Droid Pixel w/ Field Recorder 6.7 (44.1kHz, 16bit, Stereo, in:MicA, Boost:off, SoftClip:on) -> Adobe Audition (normalize and track splitting only) -> Trader's Little Helper 2.7.0 Flac Level 6 -> You. Yes, it's a phone recording, but I'm quite suprised at how decent it sounds. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Location: Phone was sitting on the edge of the right side of the stage.

This was the final show of the "Leave No Trace" acoustic(ish) tour. They were extremely chatty and personable. There's a part in track 08 where they were joking about whether anyone in the audience was bootlegging the show. I didn't give myself up, but they seemed quite OK with the idea. There's another point about 3 min into track 14 where they were giving away some enamel cups with artwork on them. I'm the guy who almost got beaned in the head by one that they're talking about.
