nyctaper – December and Beyond

December:
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!

nyctaper Update

November 15, 2007
By

Its been an exciting month thus far in November. Even after the unfortunate cancellation of the two Decemberists concerts, we still recorded and posted 6 concerts in the first 10 days of the month. There have been several “firsts” in November, including our first four-consecutive night recordings, our first 4-microphone mix, and our first 24-bit recording. Additionally, nyctaper would like to thank our readers for the many emails of encouragement and support received in the last few weeks.

You’ll notice that in the upcoming events posted below, we have added a February concert. We are happy to report that nyctaper will continue past the new year.

We are still on the look-out for decent Neil Young tickets at an affordable price. All of the United Palace concerts are sold out, but we are looking for the first few rows of the lower balcony for any night.

Please check back to the site often for updates as other concerts will be added.

I have received numerous requests to attend and record certain specific events. Please bear in mind that my time and energy are limited. Specific requests are more likely to be successful if accompanied by a guest list pass, complimentary ticket or other incentives.
