After taping the P.O.S. show at First Avenue a friend and I went over to the Turf Club. Unfortunately we missed To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie but we did catch Lookbook and A Whisper in the Noise. This was the first AWITN show I had seen in a while and only the second one that's been played recently (missed the show at the Whole). I was told this was also the first show with this line up. Glad to see Steve behind the drums and Quinn back on cello. It was the Turf Club on a Saturday night. This makes taping bands with quiet passages interesting. With that said, the recording turned out quite nice in my opinion. Hopefully I'll get around to doing a matrix with the soundboard tape. AWITN have a number of official releases to check out. Lookbook and TKAPB are both amazing as well.

Hey Empty

I'm Craig from Gastro Non Grata. We've been running a md off the sound board, but quality hasn't been great. If you want to tape the show off the board, all I ask for is a copy.

If you want to edit it, I'll buy you a beer
