DAT Heads

Contact: http://solorb.com/dat-heads/

Purpose: DAT-heads concerns itself with Digital Audio Tape decks, with an emphasis on their use for the recording and distribution of live music. This is where you can sign up to help distribute and get copies of bootleg recordings of concerts. They also have lots of information on doing bootleg recordings. Lots of great stuff here. Not sure when they will get a new name since DAT is so passé...

Web Info: Theatre-Sound Mailing List Home Page

Purpose: The Theatre Sound Mailing List caters to people doing sound for musical theatre or plays, concerts, worship services, etc. We have about 600 readers in at least 17 countries. Members range from Broadway Pro's to High School Kids; this is a non-elitist forum. It's also a very high signal-to-noise forum; off-topic discussions get squashed like bugs.
