Toronto musician Rob Nicholls has teamed up with cassette store Dupe Shop for the Summer Bootleggers show July 22. Inspired by Deadheads who used to tape Grateful Dead concerts and pass them around amongst fans, the Summer Bootlegger’s show will allow tapers record the evening’s performances then have copies available at the end of the night. Each of the 25 minute recordings will be bike messengered over to Dupe Shop after each set, where high-speed dubbing machines will crank out 40 copies in a matter of minutes. The bootleg copies will then head back to the venue where they will be given away to attendees on their way out.
