Twin Cities Bands on the Live Music Archive

The Live Music Archive is a FREE archive of live recordings for bands from around the world. The Archive covers several "genres" of music. I've had a hand in getting a few bands interested in participating in the project but the first local band was A Whisper in the Noise back in 2006. Themes, Charlie Parr and Trampled By Turtles all have recordings available on the Archive as well.

Most recently Roma di Luna, Kill the Vultures and City on the Make have all joined the Archive. I submitted Abzorbr and Black Blondie earlier today.

Some of the recordings currently available for download are City on the Make's May 15th set from the Varsity Theater. Both sets from Roma di Luna's August 9th appearance at Hosmer Library are available as well. My friend Dean has uploaded his capture of Roma di Luna's June 14th CD Release at the Cedar here.

Bands that are pending include: Dragons Power Up, Nomia, Ill Chemistry, Humanboy, Mouthful of Bees and Empires.

Bands I still wantto ask include: Gospel Gossip, Fat Kid Wednesdays, Ela, Crescent Moon is in Big Trouble, Eyedea & Abilities, Face Candy, Brother Ali, Happy Apple, A Night in the Box, Enemy Entropist, Iced Ink, Pretty Boy Thorson & the Fallen Angels, Sarah Johnson, Story of the Sea, The Millionth Word, Portrait of a Drowned Man (Duluth) and others TBD...

Back when I was still content with just torrenting recordings some people were kind enough to upload a couple of recordings I did for non-Twin Cities bands. Hank III's set from First Avenue June 27th 2006 can be downloaded here. Cracker's set from First Avenue on August 30th 2006 can be downloaded here.
