We didn't catch a whole lot of shows this summer, and only one on this list, but thanks to some generous artists and savvy tapers you can enjoy these from the comfort of your MP3 player. I recommend downloading the variable bit rate MP3's as a zip file, unzipping, and then importing into iTunes.

Camper Van Beethoven's gear was stolen -- AGAIN -- last night. That's the third time in two tours (Montreal, Columbus, and now Dallas).

So keep your eyes open for CVB's replacement gear, which is listed here. Somehow the thieves slipped past the Comfort Suite's security guard and raided their van.

If you have any gear you can lend when they come to your town, they promise to give it back. Gives new meaning to being one of the hottest acts out there on the road.
