Probably my favorite APC show that I have yet witnessed & taped. Perhaps it had a bit to do with the fact that I had just completed my 8 hour exam for my boards and was quite happy to a) be done & b) see them afterwards. As it was, I ordered tix via presale & received an email a couple days before the show saying that I had early admission. Arrived at the venue, went to the doors & they had already let the people with advanced tix in to get the wristbands from the box, sign waivers for the floor then went back outside. So, I walked in, got my ticket then talked to the box office to stall then asked questions about the 'waiver' until the doors opened. Thus, I did not even get searched by security. Was pretty pleased; does not usually work out like that. Mini-Kiss & The Burning Brides opened but I did not tape them. The crowd did not care for Mini Kiss & ended up booing them. APC came out & did the standard show. However, MJK was not pleased with the crowd for disrespecting the opening acts and proceeded to berate the audience throughout the entire show - amusing. I stood towards the right stack as possible w/a set up hanging speakers, picture 20' back on the floor. The crowd was tight; there are a few instances of microphone phasing from being pushed. A bit of audio adjustment at the beginning. Not too much crowd noise. I've traded this show out before & it may be around at some level but figured I would torrent it for anyone that wanted it. This is the best sounding APC recording that I have pulled & some folks who have heard this have said it sounds pretty good. Hope you like it. Also included are some scans from the APC 'newspaper', the setlist I received from the sound engineer, my ticket & a promo from The Metro Times advertising the show.
