To seamlessly join the two discs, simply remove D1T12 and D2T01.

Much better recording than the night before – sound engineer had the room dialed in much more effectively than the night before. This recording is dedicated to the meathead and bimbo crew who planted themselves right in front of me and then proceeded to <1> blather obnoxiously through half of the performance (especially during quiet songs) despite multiple audience members’ polite reqests to pipe down or at least move to the back / sides of the venue, and <2> throw nearly – but not quite – empty beer cups at each other, splashing those around them with backwash and beer. Classy act, indeed. High five, high five!! But I won’t let a handful of meatheads and bimbos ruin it for everyone by hoarding the recording (the only one of the night of which I’m aware), so…here it is: Enjoy!

Subject: AWESOME!!!
I was at the Apr 16th show in Milwaukee and ever since have been looking here to find decent quality recordings. This recording from the Chicago show is SUPERB. I never get sick of listening to these concerts. I’ve been to two of their shows now and when I DL these and listen, I imagine I’m at that show. It’s great how they also have a different set list for each show. Ihe Infanta is AWESOME when done live!

Great recording, man! My only regret is what you mentioned — the rude, meathead idiots who kept talking throughout the whole show! Why the hell where they even there…they obviously had no interest in seeing the Decemberists perform. Man, if I would have been at THAT show and there were idiots talking like that, I would have kicked their asses. That is SO DAMN RUDE. I hope you meatheads are reading this. SHOW SOME RESPECT. If you don’t like the band, LEAVE and allow those that do to enjoy the show to the full extent.

Thank you!! Looking forward to more superb recordings from this Decemberists tour!

Great setlist, and a great sounding recording! Probably one of the better, if not best, one out there!

Recorded by Roy Martin using a set of Core Sound Stealthy Cartioid mics
about 25′ in front of the amps.

Captured as a 44.1kHz/16-bit WAV using a Zoom H2.

Transferred to my hard drive using a card reader.

Cool Edit Pro for fades. No other manipulation to the sound files were performed.

CD Wave Editor used to split the large WAVs.

SBEs corrected using Trader’s Little Helper (“-fixed” removed from the filenames).

Encoded to FLAC (Level 7) using Trader’s Little Helper.

I’m so sorry for the loudmouth woman you hear, especially between songs. She was so annoying
but, when it’s general admission, you often can’t get away from these morons. She eventually
wiggled her fat ass away from me, to give herself the opportunity to annoy other members of the
audience. Other than her fat mouth, it was a very enjoyable, respectful audience.
