Short but sweet set from Jesse and the Rippers to help celebrate the Nomad's 4th anniversary. Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapels, The Running Scared and DJ Turtleneck were also on the bill to provide musical enjoyment. Really nice sound on this IMHO. A few chatters during quiet passages but over all the audience enhances the tape. I meant to get this out over a week ago but you know how life can be distracting. Still beating the two week mark.

The new album was recorded in a cabin "up North" as well as in a South Minneapolis basement.
