NYCTaper and New York’s Taping History

The Village Voice sits down with Dan Lynch, the 46-year-old attorney behind the fabulous live music site  The discussion with Lynch kicks off an informal history of bootlegging concerts in New York City.  It’s not that in depth, but I loved this quote about history and concert recording:

“There’s a term in the archival community: LOCKSS,” he says. ” ‘Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe.’ The music is going to be fine. It’s the stuff in between that’s really important. In 50 or 100 years, that will almost be more valuable as historical documents.”
