Welcome to Tradingland!

Below you’ll find a list of all the Hem shows currently in my possession – If you want to set up a trade for any these, contact me at wheniwasdrinking[at] – I’m always on the lookout for any new shows. Please note these recordings are NOT FOR SALE, and should not be distributed as mp3s. Many of these shows are now available for lossless download at

Hem’s Official Taping Policy as of Aug 22, 2004: Hem allows audiotaping at almost every live performance. At all taping authorized performances, tapers can tape from any ticketed seating location in the venue. Taping is limited to audio-only, using only microphones. Wireless receivers are strictly prohibited. Soundboard recordings are also prohibited. We sincerely appreciate all of our fans, so we ask that you please be considerate of those around you by not obstructing anyone else’s view of the performance. All recordings must be used for personal use or trading only. Selling or commercializing any recording is illegal and will jeopardize taping privileges for everyone. In addition to helping fans recreate the live experience, we hope tape trading will foster greater interaction within the fan community. The dissemination of “exclusive” mp3s by posting audio on web sites for streaming or downloading by the public, is not authorized.

If you have more detailed info on the source and/or lineage of any of the shows (some are still a little mysterious), please let me know (I still have a few show details to add at this point as well) – I’d like to set up the definitive list of Hem live recordings, so any feedback you can provide is most welcome – Also note my ‘wanted’ section at the bottom…
