Man, I get all giddy when one of these Marty Sertich videos turns up. I was in L.A. from 1992-1995 and missed the heyday of Cattle Club plus many great Guild shows. Thanks Marty!

This was such a great show. Buffalo Tom, who was very popular in ’94, played the time McCabe’s for 2 acoustic shows. BT acoustic shows were rare, which made it even more special. I have a vivid memory of the entire front row of the seated crowd, “headbanging” while sitting to their song “Larry”. It was funny and awesome. The people looked like those old fashioned toy birds that dipped their noses in water, then back up. Great stuff. I hope my excitement over the show did not affect my filming job too much- I was really excited about this one! Filmed with Sony TR81.

I understand that most people know Penelope from her time in The Avengers, but I have always loved her late 80s/early 90s work with Birdboys and other acoustic musicians as much, if not more.
I urge you to stop doing whatever you are doing and watch this. SO GOOD. Forward to 22min and listen to “Waiting Room”. Just gorgeous.
and thanks to Penelope, this music was my gateway to all of the SF/Davis/Bay “alternative” music such as Movie Stars, Camper Van Beethoven, Wannabe Texans, and many more.
