After recording five full sets in four nights, we have taken a few days to get over the exhaustion. We will not be out in the field until next Wednesday, and then its a fairly full schedule for the rest of the year.
The new server seems to be working quite well. The number of hits to the site this week have more than doubled since last week and we have experienced no outages and certainly no complaints. Again, please consider making a donation to nyctaper to help defray the costs of this substantial upgrade to the site.
In 2009, we plan to add new tapers and also photographers. If you are interested in a “position” in either category, please email NYCTaper. These are obviously not pay positions, but you will get guest list passes and exposure of your work to approximately 10,000 readers per day.
We expect to attend and record the following shows, subject to change. There will be dates added in the interim.
