Innaugural Interference Bootleg of the Week - starts 10/7 - Lovetown Rotterdam

We are going to try and start an Interference Bootleg of the Week club. We'll all listen to the same boot and post reactions, comparisons, and whatever else strikes our fancy. We're starting with Rotterdam 1990-01-10 from Lovetown, which you can get from u2start.

Before we listen, how should this work? Should we have an optional appointedn time-zone sensitive time each Sunday to listen together, and treat this like a setlist party thread during that time? After the group listen is over the thread could continue with more reactions.

And how should we pick new bootlegs? I'm all for hearing people's favorites, many of which are listed in the Favourite Bootleg? thread . We should probably pick the next one by the previous Friday at the latest to give people time to DL. And - Interference protocol question here - do we want one continuous thread, or a weekly thread for each boot (which would make it easy for newcomers to know what we're talking about, and work better with a setlist party-style thread) plus a continuous thread for picking songs? I think the latter.

The idea of a sort of setlist party is pretty sweet, that'd get my interest. I just hope it doesn't happen while I'd be at uni. A pox on difficult timezones!

Yeah it's gonna be hard to coordinate across timezones. Sunday 10am EST is still 1am for you...probably too late. We can also do it at a different time each week so that more people get a chance to participate.

great idea! theres loads of boots i still haven't listened to. i'm all about it. the time zone thing is gonna suck but i think having it at a different time each week will work out really well.

We could also do two times - one that's more Australia/Asia friendly and one that's more Europe-America friendly (1pm EST would be my proposal for that - 10am in cali, 6-7pm in Europe).

Or, people who can't tune in could do a little listening log:
"I will follow 1:46 - edge is on fire!
OOC 3:33 - cool snippet!"

This sounds great! I came to Interference a little too late for the last setlist parties.

Hold on: what if we actually have PLANS for the weekend?? or are you all loners out there??

I think the advantage of the forum is that we can drop our comments at any time.
Otherwise it risks to become an obligation (Sunday mass... whoops, I am being a bit blasphemous here, must rush off to confession )

I suppose the best idea would be to time it when Interference is at it's most active. That tends to be weekday evenings US time, doesn't it?

And let's be honest, far more people from North America/Europe are likely to participate than from Australia, NZ, and eastern Asia.

Good idea and a good boot choice.

Another great idea would be for somebody to stream the boot as we had the streaming during a few of the setlist threads. I don't know the first thing about that so no help there

Two times is good, if there's enough interest.

Edit: I'm not picking shows I don't think, because a bunch of stuff I have isn't readily available at u2start etc. Folks who are doing more current downloading will be better at picking shows that others can actually find & d/l.

CTU2fan, if you have some shows that aren't on U2start that you want to share with us, all the better! I don't know the first thing about streaming but one of the reasons I like this idea is that it will motivate me to collect more awesome boots.

edurban, the idea is that the thread could kick off with the setlist party and then turn into more ordered and composed analysis. So the first few pages would be setlist party style, but after we are finished listening, anyone (especially those who missed the setlist) would be welcome to write their reactions to the show, compare versions of live songs or shows, discuss Bono's range and voice quality, write a concert review, etc. for the whole week.

As for weekend plans, it's not like I (or anyone else) will be around every Sunday. Lots of people like the setlist party idea so I think it would be a fun one if you are available and have the 2 hours (or, we could do shorter shows at busy times of the year...Boy marathon for the holidays!) and if not, just join in later.

Edit:
A weeknight presents the problem of, what week night? I'm only available Wednesdays because of class and work! If it were sunday afternoon EST then the US west coast and Europe would have no problem joining in; if it were at night Europe would be asleep. Axver, hopefully you'll stay up and join us for some of your favorites.

Ok, I understand. I'll be there when I am available or join in as soon as I can.

Anyway, I think it's a brilliant idea and an excellent excuse to listen to other boot other than ZooTV (I am a nostalgic..), which is why I asked the question (favourite bootleg) at the beginning.

better going back to what I am supposed to do now...this forum is eating my life away!

I really like this idea and hope it takes off, if people get into the spirit of it there's no reason why it shouldn't. I'll defintely give my two cents anyway, especially on this particular show, which is perhaps my all time favourite U2 bootleg, and a brilliant gig to use to launch this whole thing, they rarely come any better. All the idea's about discussing live renditions, Bono's voice, and writing reviews are great too. Potentially this could be something really good, if it works.

The time-zone thing and people's different responsibilities could be a bit of a challenge but here's hoping we can pull it together somehow.

Yes, time is an issue...maybe we should make it a bi-weekly thing?

Since I seem not to be able to dowload squat from R*apid8share anymore without paying for a lousy membership, maybe bi-weekly is better......................

Hey Ax, what time would it be here in Melb if it was, say, 9pm in North America?
