This was an eagerly anticipated show, and this was also the first time I got to see Pavement play. I thought this was their first west coast show ever, but setlist.fm shows that a show took place in Davis in 1989. Hmm, I never knew. We were friends with Scott K (Spiral Stairs)- he even played bass in my friend roommate’s band for a show in 1990. We also knew Gary well, as my friends had recorded at his studio in Stockton. I wonder how he’s doing…
OH, and as a side note, one of my biggest taping screwups happened the next night. I video’d the entire 90 min set from Kennel Club and forgot to turn the mic on my camera on. Silent video. I was running on about 4 hours sleep and then drove to SF for the show, so I was dead tired. I then taped over almost all of it because I never thought people would care about silent video footage. I might have 5min of it on a tape somewhere.
