New Year’s Eve Downloads and Torrents

One thing that is super great about the jamband scene is its full embrace of New Year’s Eve as a time when musicians should really go nuts for themselves (AND for the fans). Any touring musician would say that there’s not a whole lot of time to rest, especially if they’ve done a Fall tour and plan on making trips out in the Spring, so it’s understandable that some bands still need a break and don’t book NYE shows.

Still, many bands use New Year’s Eve as a full-on ragefest where they can prove their full worth, complete with a balloon drop, confetti, and Auld Lang Syne thrown in for tradition’s sake. I’ve put my money on Umphrey’s McGee for the past three years (probably our last), and I plan on attending NYE shows in the future as a tradition of my own…

If you missed out on New Year’s Eve shows this year, you can relive as much of the glory as I could find in a downloadable format. Email me if you find other NYE shows that should be included on the list below…

  1. Well, just looking to branch out, and I’m not a huge fan of the Aragon ballroom. UM did the best they could with the sound (which was much better than I thought it would be), but it’s just a crappy venue in my opinion.

    Were you there?

  2. I was there on the 30th and was pleasantly surprised by the job the sound guys did. Definitely not as boomy as other shows I’ve seen there (20+ shows at the Aragon).

    I did not hit the NYE show. Getting older so so I hang with the wife and little guy now. However there is one band, should they come back….. ;-)

  4. Naw, not yet. I’m looking for everything, though…

    STS9, The Duo, Trey–there’s still a lot waiting to get put out…
