dredg and the Live Music Archive

Hi [gingerninja], we just got the OK from dredg, I expect you'll see shows at archive.org within the next couple weeks. :)


dredg have agreed to allow recordings of Live shows to be posted to The Live Music Archive at archive.org. Their very own section is here. If you're wondering what this means for you, either visit the site or read the blurb below:
Welcome to the Live Music Archive. etree.org is a community committed to providing the highest quality live concerts in a lossless, downloadable format. The Internet Archive has teamed up with etree.org to preserve and archive as many live concerts as possible for current and future generations to enjoy. All music in this Collection is from trade-friendly artists and is strictly noncommercial, both for access here and for any further distribution. Artists' commercial releases are off-limits. This collection is maintained by the etree.org community.

dredg's policy on taping and uploading is clarified on the Band Details page, special thanks to Wayne and the band for finally getting them listed on the site, archive.org for offering the service and finally any tapers who upload/allow their recordings to be uploaded!

While you're there, you could check out the Clann Zu, Mogwai or any of the other 1247 artists sections that are already up. There's also an entire section devoted to Open Source music - I'm a big fan of s.t.'s Emotions in a Box EP, freely available to stream or download. Long live archive.org!

There's already a messageboard thread here

Win stuff!

You, yes you* can win an iBook, an MBox and an autographed copy of "Catch Without Arms" by visiting this site!, watching the Bug Eyes video and taking a quiz. It's only fair to clarify that this is actually an official competition and isn't actually run by Traversing.net.
