This is the same seed posted to a certain Bittorrent lossless recordings of independent origin site of some renown shared later that night, if I can believe my notes...most likely this was really a couple days afterwards....though I remember at the time I was *very* enthusiastic about this show.

Here's my recent recording of the fabulous The Bird and the Bee. The Independent was packed on a Monday night to see this group, which features the daughter of Lowell George (from Little Feat) playing in a synth-pop duo. The 80s are back! Or was it electroclash finally becoming popular in LA? Crowd was pretty sedate considering the place it was filled, so I'm guessing the group was a bit more casual than the usual wild bunch that go to see shows here. :-)
Blurry photos and ticket stub included.
Will also put up Obi Best soon (which I did)...they were a very pleasant surprise, and of course Alex and Wendy from that group also help out on backing vocals and random instruments.
* DO NOT USE THIS RECORDING FOR ANY SORT OF MATERIAL GAIN.
* I'M OK WITH TRANSCODES AS LONG AS REFERENCE TO THIS LOSSLESS ORIGINAL IS RETAINED

As a bonus, I also assembled a YouTube playlist of footage from this show, which starts from "My Love", which you can click on below.
"This was shot with a Sony HVR-Z1U, Audio is from Church Audio 9100 Mics and
Pre-Amp to a Roland R09 16/48. Taper = Derek Dubuque (Drock). Thanks to
Inara, and the Independent for allowing me to tape." Indeed, this source sounds outstanding, and better than my effort.
I believe at one point I received the entire gig on DVD, but have to find that. If I do find it and it includes more than what's online, I'll update this and share it.
