nyctaper – December and Beyond

November 28, 2007


After a little 10 day break, nyctaper hits the halls again for a glut of recording activity. December kicks off with at least 9 concerts in the first 15 days of the month, with possibly more to be added. Several of these events have been sponsored by readers of this site, to whom we all owe a debt of thanks.

Error 503 is Gone:
The dreaded “Error 503” message, which was the result of server limitations placed on nyctaper, has been removed by the host server. Concurrent connections by a single user were limited after the server overload in October, so that any time multiple files were queued an error occurred. This also prevented the effective use of download managers. Users can now go back to the use of Down Them All! or other download managers for nyctaper.

Support the Bands:
I am very happy to report that many users have either posted or contacted nyctaper via email regarding the various ways that they have supported the artists featured on this site. Additionally, click-through purchases have risen, and in particular the new Pylon reissue of Gyrate seems to be a popular order. Thank you to the many users who continue to support the artists!

    Have you recorded at Cake Shop before? Seems like it would be a major challenge. In any case, I’ll be on the lookout for you at the Figgs show (and try not to cheer too loud near your setup).

    Both Figgs shows are going to be a challenge. Thanks for the heads-up on Cake Shop. I’m going to go by there in the next few days to do some “advance scouting” and see what I will need.
    One of my best recordings of the year was the one I made at Pianos (next door to Cake Shop) for the Meat Puppets, so you never know.
    Hope to see you there, Steve.

    By the way, the Staten Island show is no cover.

    Frustrating weekend, as at both Figgs gigs it was not logistically possible to record.
    But I’m working on getting a Neil Young ticket for Wednesday, and also looking into NY Dolls and Gov’t Mule tickets.
