Nickel Creek in New Orleans - HELP!

I was at the Nickel Creek show on March 15 in New Orleans. I am originally from there but had not been back since Katrina. I was on spring break and just happened to see that Nickel Creek was in town so of course I had to go. It was my seventh NC show and it was amazing. They were on and excited and the dance movements Chris did during Toxic were awesome and so insanely funny. One part of the show though really affected me. They did a cover of Randy Newman’s Louisiana 1927:
What has happened down here is the wind have changed
Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline
The river rose all day
The river rose all night
Some people got lost in the flood
Some people got away alright
The river have busted through cleared down to Plaquemines
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline
It was amazing and so fitting and after just coming home and seeing things for the first time it brought me to tears. The sound of the song has been stuck in my head since and I am dieing to find a tape of the show. If anyone knows of a copy of the show I would love it if you could guide me in that direction. I don’t have much live Nickel Creek, mainly the things people have been generous enough to post on these boards so it can’t really be a trade but I would even be willing to pay. Thank you so much to anyone who has any info.
