8 Legged Monster Live at Pearl’s

August 9, 2008

It’s been a long wait since my last post, but it’s been well worth it on multiple fronts.

First, I’m pleased to be able to share a few brand new tracks and photos from an amazing performance by 8 Legged Monster live at what turned out to be one of the final shows at Pearl’s on July 13, 2008. We’re sorry to see this venue disappear from the scene, but at least these guys (and many others) helped it go out with a bang during its final weeks.

Besides featuring some great music, this post also celebrates the completion of a major new website redesign for BayTaper.com. We’ve upgraded our look and feel, made the interface more user-friendly, and added an audio archives page and a slick new random slideshow generator that pulls from a pool of nearly 300 photos and audio tracks. So, if you haven’t explored the depths of our website in a while, make sure to take another look!
