Live Shows

Tom's got a bunch of recordings of his live shows, and you can get some of 'em right here -- convention concerts (usually just under an hour) and house concerts (up to two hours or more) in their most raw form. Each of these is one or two very large MP3s, pretty much as recorded, all the shtick, glitches, banter, and improv intact.
