I got this show in a trade a couple of years ago. This is from the Bloodflowers promo tour where the band played in smaller venues than usual. I tried to get tickets for the show but they were sold out within a couple of seconds here. Doh! I'm pretty sure I have the correct venue information and I'm also pretty sure it was recorded off of WXRT in Chicago. The discs I received had sector boundary errors between each track so I fixed those and some sloppy edits in Wavelab. Overall, this is an excellent sounding show but there's a couple of issues with One Hundred Years. There's a couple of dropouts at around one minute into the song. It looks like it happened during the broadcast but I'm not sure. Also, not long after the dropouts, the song fades out and Bloodflowers begins. It seems like an unnatural end to the song and I'd be surprised if it was.
