Daily updates from the three of us each morning will be posted on the home page, and we will also be updating the AP.net live show twitter (@apnetatshow). You can also follow each of us individually on twitter to see what bands and parties we're at at any given moment (@paultao, @alueda, @ryangardnerc).
