If you think that my posts here are totally random, you are right. 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.
There are other posts of this show on YT, but I posted this anyway because 1. this has known lineage, and that lineage is DAT and 2. The other version doesn’t have the most dickish, inappropriate interview ever courtesy of “Mr Birchem”(Adam Carrola). You’re gonna want to shower to get the ICK off of you after listening to the interview. It’s not even funny.
