I don’t normally post stuff here that I did not film, but Tiger Trap was one of the local Sacramento bands from the ’90s that I did not get to see. They were active when I lived in L.A. from 92-95. Here is a good video of their set in St. Louis, courtesy of my good friend Jim Utz’ archive, Enjoy!

Their penultimate SF show, they would only go on for a month or two more before calling it quits. Rose Melberg went onto play in Go! Sailor, The Softies, and her own acoustic projects. Heather continued on in music, but the other two seemed to have bee less active.
Several tracks remain unreleased, and others only have id’s based on Matt Hartman’s efforts in annotating the video performances.
This is a group that my friends loved back in the day and have passed this onto me, so hoping others also derive pleasure from hearing. Unfortunately, neither could make their final SF show in December 1993.
