Re: history of looping question: Live Looping Day


I suspect that since the latter week or so of October — every year since 
the very early years of the millennium — has been the time around which 
Rick Walkers’ Y2K? Loopfests occur in Santa Cruz, that that day and 
announcement have something to do with that.

Almost if not every year during that festival, Rick has somehow able to 
entice the mayor (or some other city official) of Santa Cruz to appear one 
night at the event and declare International Live Looping Day and present 
official certificates honoring the headliners of the multi-day long show.

If International Live Looping Day was posted about on the LD list only 
ever on that one day — Oct. 21, 2006 — I am greatly surprised, because it 
happened pretty much every year I was there (and I was there for all of 
them in the beginning, both as a performer and audience member).
