Another video recorded earlier this evening at the 311 show in Boca Raton, Florida. This one is Sunset in July, or most of it anyway. Once again, as has happened to me at other concerts, I got busted by a security guard for taking video even though hundreds of people around me were doing the same. At the end of the clip you can hear him telling me, “You can’t record the show,” after which he proceeded to turn a blind eye toward everyone else’s cameras, not to mention their funny cigarettes (which should also be legal if you ask me). I don’t know why I’m the one who gets picked on, but, as always, I complied without an argument. As a librarian, and as someone who used to be married to a songwriter, I do realize there are intellectual property issues involved here, but all I know is that yesterday I purchased this song from iTunes, and I believe that concert videos like this one serve only to encourage others to do likewise. So here it will stay until any further cease and desist orders come my way.
Just got back from seeing 311 at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton, Florida. Here’s Beautiful Disaster.
