2013-07-13 Optimus Alive Festival, Lisbon, Portugal/Source 1
Good quality soundboard audio sourced from the webstream. It uses high-efficiency AAC encoding to yield quite fair audio quality at a fairly low bitrate. This concert had the first performance of Shake The Disease" on the Delta Machine tour.
I'm glad to have ripped a near-flawless stream for this one. There was a dropout near the beginning of Walking In My Shoes, probably a technical error on the production side since others reported the same thing. The short 3-track FM broadcast is unaffected by this issue (find it at Source 3 on the wiki). There are some glitchy segments due to missing audio during Just Can't Get Enough, specifically at "and when it rains, you're shining down on me" and later near the end of the song, but luckily Fletch's solo is intact. I listened to the entire recording and these are the only unfortunate flaws with the recording (and they are definitely my connection's fault and not the stream's - sorry!).

The announcer was talking over the very beginning of the concert intro. I retained all of the concert intro music despite her blabbering over it.
There seems to be more distortion overall from Personal Jesus forward - perhaps somebody at production ramped up the volume somewhere where they shouldn't have.
Some mistakes from this concert:
- Some Policy Of Truth samples were played during Should Be Higher, around the middle of the song.
- There is a false start at the beginning of Shake The Disease.
- Dave misses his cue during Soothe My Soul at "I can't stop / desire in me / I'm not waiting / patiently".
