Show Notes:
Another GREAT show, with people from all over the US converging on Nashville to watch TMS work their magic...there was a pre-show party and a
post-show festivity, I did the former but not the latter...

Kind of a clusterfuck to set up cams and mics, was still able to get 3 cams in the air, and a couple of decks running, to bring a matrix to your
earholes, courtesy of Dennis....and below are a couple of zoomcam samples (a 3 cam mix is in the works).

One cool bit: Rich yelled out my name during soundcheck ("where's Hagar"), and teased a bit of Zepp's "Black Country Woman", so look for it in a
future set!


Alms and praise be to Dennis, and fuck-alls be given to me...as there really isn't any other way.

Or something to that effect...
