There is audience chatter in the background, but there are specific moments that are directly invasive: a woman I had been talking to before the show
can be heard at the beginning of each set; after "Beware" when she started talking to me (she later apologized for forgetting that I was taping); and
lastly in "They Love Each Other" when she explains to a woman taking photos that Chris had requested people to stop taking pics. There was also a
group to my left that wouldn't shut up (you'll hear a girl talking rather loudly during "Star Or Stone"). I moved forward during the intermission in
the hopes of getting in front of them, which is why my location changed by a foot between sets. But during the encore, that same loud girl ended up
on my left again and she screams a lot during the encore and in "Mississippi." In "Vibration & Light Suite," someone near me started clapping on the
beat during two sections of the song. It might sound like pops, but it's not.

Chris had a justifiably bad outburst in "Star Crossed Lonely Sailor." To explain, this venue usually has a DJ play on the weekends around 11pm. CRB
was scheduled to finish by 11:30pm, so around 11:10, the DJ started setting up--something that involved a distracting method of moving a DJ booth out
to the edge of the platform that extends from the right side of the stage (where about a dozen people had been sitting). So there was the DJ, the sound
man and some staff members all up on this platform either setting the booth up or making people move off of the platform. There is also a short moment
of phasing in the same song from when I had to turn to make way for the staff as they left the stage.

I applied very minor eq to some peaks in the wave, but did nothing else to the recording.
