I found a new recording of Worcester 2008 on my HD. Got it on the net but really don't know where. This is more for completists as there are already two 8.5 sources. This one is around 7.5.

The recording sounds pretty good although not perfect. There are the occasional minor ruffling sounds resulting from being shoved around in the mosh pit or from me slipping the recorder into my pocket when security came a little too close for comfort. And it might need a bit of EQ-ing to sound more natural but I’m leaving that up to the listener. The sound is completely unaltered with the exception of normalization to make it the proper volume.
As for location, we were right up front. The acoustic set took place in the middle of the arena so those five songs sound a little far away. However, a few interesting moments of drama erupted near me during the acoustic set. Security dragged out a middle-aged man, who had pushed his way to the front of the crowd at the beginning of the show and started jumping around because apparently he thought he was 16, and was touching a drunk girl
inappropriately knowing she wouldn’t remember any of it. A little while later, some drunk teenager tried to pick a fight with us because she thought we were pushing her (not like we were in a mosh pit or anything). It got pretty intense and all these things can be heard on the recording.
Thanks to the taper whoever you are and keep it lossless unless for your own use.
Edit: There's a part 3/3 in the title of the file. The taper also taped the two support acts but I only have the txt of them. Against Me! was part 1/3 and Serj Tankian was part 2/3.
