Default So... Anyone taping the upcoming SP shows?

I remember when Zwan started playing their first shows, this board was sooo well organized by all of the tapers i.e., everyone knew which shows were being taped and tried to keep all of the bases covered. I mean, I remember shows leaking sometimes just a day later during the Zwan era. It just seemed very well organized back then (thank you, tapers).

So anyway, are any of you overseas tapers gearing up to tape any of these upcoming shows or what? I'm sure all of the big festival shows will be covered but, what about the first show in Paris? Is anyone on that? I'm going to the Baltimore show but, I'm no taper. A large show like that is almost sure to be covered though. Especially considering the large amount of American tapers out there.

I will tape every show that I attend. So far, that's looking like Montreal, Toronto, and maybe Baltimore.

You could sneak other tapers' gear in, though

You should start taping.

When did I tell people what they should do? I was just asking if anyone knew what the taping situation was looking like these days. Calm down fella. And I fixed your grammar error. I do shit for the community, not a shit.

I wish I could. The gear is so expensive though and I don't go to enough shows these days to warrant the cost.

I halfway wonder if the band is not gonna be kinda vigilant about stopping tapers if they can, especially early on. With how guarded they've been with info thus far, it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't want everyone's first experience with the Zeitgeist material to be in the form of concert recordings.

Yeah, and Billy is known to be prissy about what shows he doesn't want leaked. Like I said earlier though, I'm sure the festival shows will get taped because of the number of people going to these shows and even just because of the number of tapers that are going to be out just to tape other bands. I'm betting that security will probably be tight and not very taper-friendly for the Paris show though.

If I still had taping gear, I would totally send my gear out to Frenchy again.
