video
Here's a little clip of the nonsense that went on last night at the Aragon, enjoy! I will post more when I get around to it. Also, first video I shot with my new Rhode Stereo Video mic. I was right up against the speakers so the bass is still a little overwhelming on some other videos I will post later I was posted up by the soundboard. It sounds great! so hang tight.
