Shows how much they know. I think they’re lying, actually, to keep the number down. I was surprised a few weeks ago when a promoter for this show told me “No taping.” I questioned him on this, knowing ABB’s taper-friendly status, thinking that he’d say it was the venue’s decision. Instead, he told me it was band request. He either doesn’t know, or was lied to himself, but there were at least eight tapers there last night, and that was the count before DTB started. More may have filed in later, I don’t know.

Morale of the story: show up to tape every show. All they can do is turn you away at the door.
