September 5, 1999
Arts, Beats & Eats Festival
Rig was probably Sony cassette recorder > PC > Soundforge > CD. It's
possible it was a DAT or a mini-disc, but I can't remember.
Ripped the CD to WAV, then mastered/EQ/Widen/Limited in Protools.
Haven't lstened to this in 20 years. Sounds pretty good. I'd say a solid B.
Crowd gets loud between songs, some cups hitting the cement, but the music is
pretty clear and it's a great set. A plane flies overhead at the end of Tanneytown
and there's a broken guitar string during Someday.
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.
This was a Sunday. Also posting the Wilco set from Friday and DBT from a couple
