nyctaper new year!

Happy New Year
A Happy 2008 to all of our faithful nyctaper readers. We had a great 2007, and hope to continue to bring quality live recordings to our readers, and connect our readers with the wonderful artists we feature. This past year we built some solid cooperative relationships with artists, management, and of course the band’s supporters. We hope to continue to foster these positive relationships and encourage performers and readers to contact us.

Upcoming Recordings
We recorded moe. on December 30, but the recording needs more post-production. We also recorded Pierce Turner on December 9, and that recording needs quite a bit of work (removing audience noise). Both of these recordings will ultimately be featured on this site. We also continue to dip into the ‘archives’ and encourage more archive requests from readers. We intend to honor every request for which we have a recording.

Upcoming Events:

John Prine:
January 5, 2008, Carnegie Hall (oops, my ticket “source” ended up being a scam–any help getting a ticket for this sold out show would be appreciated)

Other Upcoming Events
I have a ticket for Springsteen in July at Giants Stadium, and plan on purchasing tickets for the Nassau Coliseum shows this Spring when they become available. I will also be taping an upcoming Black ’47 show, but probably not St. Patrick’s Day. I also have a great ticket for Meredith Monk at Symphony Space on February 15, but I am not sure if we will be recording that show. We continue to receive offers of sponsorship (tickets/guest list) from readers who would like a particular artist recorded. Thank you to those readers.

Feel free to email nyctaper if you’d like to make suggestion, ask a question, enter a complaint, introduce us to new music, encourage us, or even make a donation. We enjoy the interaction with our readers.

On to 2008!
