Think I've mentioned it in another thread or two already concernin' this, but hell yeah I want a recordin' of their set! Five years of waitin' ta see 'em and it was at Bonnaroo and it was better than I could've wanted!
There is a TC live set from Rothbury 2008 around. I could put it up on rapidshare if anyone can't find it and wants to hear it. They pretty much did the same set just in a different order. The main differences were they did a few more songs off their latest album at Roo and this coincided with having a few different singers/rappers but there was a surprisingly large amount of overlap given how many albums they have put out over the years.
It is very much worth looking for if you are fiending to revisit the experience. Although those videos on youtube helped me a lot. The Rothbury recording helped me a lot too previously...
The Rothbury set was a better experience in my opinion because the crowd was more lively, with a major glowstick war going down through 3/4 of the set once it went dark outside. One of the rappers even goes "Ya'll are fuckin wicked man... no shit" after one of the songs. Lola went into the crowd to dance with us too. One of the guys introduced the band at the end and he is like "Lola from Brazil. Where's Lola? Where is she? Oh she's in the crowd with you!"
However the sound system and visuals at Roo were much better. If they didn't have so much overlap I would say Roo could have been my favorite show because we really kicked it up at the end but the total energy at Rothbury was just too much.
Ah I'm not sure I don't think they do anything official. There's got to be some good live sets floating around though, particularly from the EU.
But as for comparing the Rothbury VS. Bonnaroo crowds... well just listen to everyone "Whoo" at the end of song 1 (they did Sound the Alarm first). I mean Roo was great with the whole stage crashing and everything but Bury just had the total intensity man I'm telling you... don't worry though Roo was the shiznit and it's really not fair to even compare the shows because they were both insanely awesome. So shame on me, I won't do it anymore. =)
One of the biggest difference between the two sets was where they played Sound the Alarm. At Roth it was song 1, whereas at Roo it was near the end. The Roo version was better though (shyt I'm comparing again!) since they put it in at the end and with a little more uptempo kick and energy to it. The Rothbury set I believe was just prior to them releasing the Radio Retaliation album.
Well anyways the original quality was ok, but sounded subpar in my car so I remastered the songs a bit to add some bass and cut out some background noise. You can still hear the crowd real well although I cut their noise down a little bit. It sounds a lot better on bigger speakers especially, so please do yourself a favor and play it duckfuacking loud on your best setup.

Awesome thanks for the upload. Can't wait to listen with my (legit) headphones. If I can save up enough money I'll be catching them at Red Rocks in september. They're opening up for STS9...never thought my first STS9 show would be trumped by their opening band
Damn TC - STS9 back to back should be sick but yea I'd have to rate them as headliners for that one!
I saw Pretty Lights (opener) - STS9 back to back in the Red Barn at Summercamp with the special limited access late night VIP ticket. Pretty Lights probably put on their best show of the summer, played like 5 or 6 new songs for us. But STS9 also did a great job following up... they actually work well as a closer and are not the kind of band to be intimidated following a great show because their style is unique and kickass.
