Well I’m going to give it a shot again this evening. All the standard disclaimers apply – I’m going to get songs wrong (or more likely, not be able to identify them) particularly during the 2nd set. Please do not take the ‘live’ list as gospel. This time I’m going to avoid using my phone until I walk into the Beacon to reserve as much battery-power as I can. Pictures will be added once I’m home from the show. Have a happy and safe NYE everyone!

Next day update: pictures at the bottom of the post.

4:55pm – leaving to meet up w/ friends. Wish me luck on the MTA, I’m avoiding Times Square at all costs.
