a company that helps touring bands record their live shows and, right there at the venue, sell the recordings to show-goers on custom-decorated USB flash drives

One of the coolest ideas I've heard in a while.

The Pixies did something similar for the Doolittle Anniversary tour - literally cases of CD burners burning the nights show and selling the CDs.

Great article by the way.

OK Go did the flashdrive thing when I saw them earlier this year. I get to relive the show whenever I want

I'd love to have live recordings from the shows I go to. I'd happily pay for that. Most of my favorite bands sound even better live than they do recorded.

the in-capacity of the record companies to adapt to technological advanances is THEIR OWN FAULTS...and their own studpidty to realize that people would always much rather NOT PAY FOR "ENTERTAINMENT" than pay for it.

FUCK THE PEOPLE WHO THINK DOWNLOADING MUSIC IS UNCOOLO.
