Recorded at The Great Hall (Long Winter 4.5 – Night 2), March 18, 2016.

You can't fault Long Winter for being ambitious and for wanting to close out the season by cramming in as much music and art into the Great Hall as possible, but their plan to close the year out with a two-night stand didn't entirely pay off. Giving patrons the choice of two nights (and holding them at the end of Spring Break) seemed to especially cut into the younger crowd and both nights (especially Friday) lacked that "about to burst" feeling that makes LW unique. But even if the crowd was at less than maximum strength, there was no certainly no lack of music spread throughout the building.

Once again, touring as a member of Cousins has given Jay Crocker a chance to broadcast the experimental electronic sounds of his own project. It's too bad this Main Stage set basically overlapped with c_RL's homespun textured noise improvisations in the next room over, as there's a couple groups that would probably enjoy listening to each other. (And also too bad that both of those overlapped with things at LW's other two stages, as I barely managed to catch any of either — thank goodness for the MFS remote unit working in my absence!)

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
