This was my second time seeing George Porter Jr, Zigaboo Modeliste, Leo Nocentelli and Rich Vogel. I had seen them all at Bonnaroo, except Art Neville was playing keyboards with the Meters and Rich Vogel was with Galactic. This was my first time at the Regency Ballroom and I like the venue. This show was awesome, lots of fun, good sound and a great setlist. I met two other tapers, one was using Beyer mics on a stand, the other stealthing like me, with a Sony ECM mic + minidisc recorder. I also got a few songs on video. I was standing about halfway between the stage and the soundboard, dead centre. The venue was only about half sold. Security was almost non-existent at this show. Lots and lots of good smelling herbs floating around, and some excellent smelling hash throughout the show. Zigaboo commented on the "good weed" and also joked about a "bag of window pane". It was his birthday so he was in a great mood, and George Porter also recently celebrated his birthday.

After the show I shook George's hand and had him sign my ticket. Leo and Zigaboo left the stage a lot sooner so I didn't get the chance to meet them. There was birthday cake given out in the side lobby, and there were giant birthday cards that you could sign for George and Zigaboo. It started raining lightly sometime during the show and continued on into the night. I was walking back to the hotel, so I stopped at Mel's Diner and got a wet umbrella bag to put my gear in so it didn't get soaked.

Thanks to Ken for trading a beer for my extra set of ear plugs.
