I've never even seen a show there.. so I was curious about how strict they are about taping & such.

I've got 5th row sigur ros tickets for this tuesday. On a side note, is there an opening act for sigur ros on this tour? and how long are the sets?

I taped Remy Zero and Travis awhile back with no problems - I believe I was in row 14 on the aisle. It's a really nice place, kind of along the lines of the Orpheum.

The opening act for Sigur Ros is this guy who sings the same lyrics over and over again, who plays the acoustic guitar, and sometimes painfully badly...maybe I'm being too harsh ;) Some Icelandic guy....who shaunna described as "the biggest, gayest most emo-est guy ever" ... heh. I think that he has a website though...but I forget his name.

lol @ pale princess! i think the guy opening for sigur ros is siggi arman or something like that. and yeah he is pretty much as bad as everyone has said. he does have some help from some of the members of sigur ros on a couple of songs. in atlanta the show was supposed to start at 8:30 but i believe this guy started playing around 8:00.

I taped Tom Waits there a few years back on the Get Behind The Mule tour. The most their security checks is for a weapon. Keep your shiznat concealed and you should be alright.
Remember, it's a *theatre* first, rather then a music club...

i'm still somewhat of a rookie
think it would be better to record with the bass filter off?

and on a sharp 722 MD, what do you think a safe level would be? i'm worried about recording too quietly cause i dont think the show will be too loud

I don't think they've been doing encores. I think they've been doing "curtain calls." Anyway, that http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk that I PMed you about has stuff about it for sure. And i think they've been relatively loud.

so lvl 7 with bass-roll-off should be cool?

if you're asking me, I'd say I don't know. My layman's adivce is to remember that they do have a lot of "shreechy" (according to parents) sounds in their music.

If possible, I'd recommend you run your mics line in with the bass roll-off. That'll cut your bass roll-off in half. Only do that if you can get good levels. If not, I would still go mic in with bass roll-off. It'll cut out most of the rumbling and ********** noise of the room, i.e. fans, airconditioners, etc. I've recorded purely acoustic stuff with a bass roll-off filter and have been pleased. If there isn't a lot of energy in those lower freq's, you really aren't cutting out much.
