AUDIO: New Found Glory @ The Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ 4.30.11

Another one from Bamboozle. This time it's New Found Glory, who put on one of the more energetic sets of the day. I only missed the first song. Not bad considering the hectic schedule. Quality is ok. Not the best, but not bad at all.

AUDIO: The Gaslight Anthem @ The Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ 4.30.11

Unfortunately I didn't get the entire Gaslight performance on tape. I was watching a different band when they went on so when I ventured over, Gaslight was just finishing up the first half of their set. After drinking for many hours I pulled up some asphalt safely away from the crowd, set the recorder on the ground and watched the rest of the show. As you can hear, my proximity to the stage takes nothing away from the quality of the recording. I'm continually surprised by how good this tiny piece of technology can capture live music. I hope you feel the same way.

AUDIO: River City Extension @ The Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ 4.30.11

I can honestly say I haven't heard the entire recording of this yet except for tidbits so I could adjust the audio. I figured I'd just post it anyway and deal with it later.

*Update (Cinco de Mayo, 2011)... finally listened to it last night. Audio is pretty good. It's clear enough, but since it was outside it has a funky feel. You can also hear a friend tell me about how she failed getting me a beer during one song. Overall, it's still probably just as good or better than a lot of bootlegs on the internet.

This is pretty much RCE's entire set from Bamboozle. They jumped off the stage at the end and did a song in the crowd, but it was impossible to hear so I stopped recording. I also had to piss like a motherfucker.

AUDIO: Frank Turner @ The Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ 4.30.11

UPDATE #2: (7.10.11): Our friends over at The LuceroArmy Tumblr may or may not have hooked this show up again. Click the link and find out.

UPDATE (5.24.11): I just noticed this file was removed due to a violation of the terms of service. Not really sure what that means, and I'm not happy about it, but I'll play nice for now and leave it down. For those of you who scored this gem before it was too late, enjoy it. For everyone else... apologies.

Pretty good recording for a festival atmosphere. Not too much background noise considering there were nine stages of music. I had my recorder set in a good location. Frank broke a sting at one point and had problems with his guitar during another song. Shit happens I guess. Still... a good piece of audio.
