Here is the last band on DAT#528. That’s right, there were TEN bands on that one DAT. I have 2,000 DATs and hardly any have been digitized. So, add the 2,000 DATs and 4,000 audio cassettes and thousands of videos together- at this rate of one post per day (counts fingers and toes) I’ll die of old age before we finish here. Buckle up for the long haul, friends.
Foo Fighters start the show with a cool Angry Samoans cover.
Over the next few weeks, you will be getting full sets of all bands who played the KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, directly off of the DAT master tape. Why? Well, audio to video synch wizard king bean asked for a couple of sets from the weekend of shows, and it just made sense to run the entire set of DATs and archive then now…. especially since they were DIC brand (a little taper humor for the nerds out there).
I moved back to Sacramento over Thanksgiving weekend of 1995, and this took place a month afterwards. HUGE thanks to Kevin Haynes for taping this for me, and then sending the DAT masters to me. What a guy.
