OK, time for an old man ramble. I had bought a ticket for this show well in advance, but then I realized that the show was on Fathers Day. A big group from my Dad’s side of the family went to the Giants game, and I went as well. After the game, I had some friends of my dad drop me off at The Stone.. at about 5 or 6pm. I hung out on Broadway street for HOURS, waiting for the doors to open.
Being there by myself was a huge risk, as I had my Sony Pro Walkman with me and security was pretty tight at the club. If I got caught at the door(or while taping), there was no place to me to take my deck. I would be stuck waiting outside. Luckily, I got everything in.
Show was PACKED so I could not get a really good taping spot, but it still sounds pretty good. It was a bit bassy, so I fixed it up a bit in Izotope.
After the show, I was supposed to get a ride with Mark Martin but I could never find him. I panicked and went with Greg Johnson instead. Mark called me the next day SO pissed off- they waited for an hour after the show, trying to find me. I’m still sorry about that.
