Next up on the bill was Butthole Surfers. I had seen videos of their performances, but this was the first time I had ever seen them live. I don’t know if a 2pm start time suited them well- they are better in the dark with strobes, videos, and dancers. Still cool.

This was the first big show I taped with the DAT- I got it less than 4 weeks before the show. I was all stressed out with trying to sneak the gear in (I could not get a D6 in for a show in 1989), but it was easy. I snuck in the TCD-D3, 2 battery packs, Sony ECM-909 mic, Marantz PMD-430, 2 nakamichi CM-300 mics, and a hundred feet of mic cable. We put the battery packs in the bottom of snack cracker boxes, and the PMD430(which is HUGE) rolled in a blanket. So funny.
I was super sick at the show, so you can hear me coughing at times.
