Small Widget Spot



big microscope is primarily a vehicle for me to share my concert experiences with you. i try to record most shows i see, always with deference to the artist’s policy on audience taping (less so to the venue’s). while the posts don’t always follow shortly after the shows, it’s my hope that the live recordings make up for any lag time.

because i haven’t gotten around to programming the ‘page’ links to go directly to the category pages, you’ve stumbled upon this little waystation of commentary. the archive of musical posts with streaming mp3s is here. enjoy!

    Sweet… glad I finally hunted down your site for your up and coming shows. You told me about the Gourds show… that was a mistake to miss that one. What about Phil’s 70th bday show on 3/20? Are you going to Bonnaroo?
