This one has a story. Brian McKenna promoted this show and I had snuck my DAT deck into the venue. I ask him if we could get Sebadoh’s permission to tape since I had taped them back at Cattle in 1992. We get backstage and Lou Barlow says “oh, YOU are the guy who taped that Cattle Club show? I saw that for sale in Cambridge as a bootleg”. I had to explain that I was not an international bootlegging criminal and that some asshole that I traded with must be selling it. He still gave permission, thanks Lou! And see? This one never got bootlegged.
I had total impostor syndrome, taping through the board at this show. This was the place where I saw my first rock show (Iron Maiden/Scorpions 1982) so it was pretty surreal.
I caught some of the Eels set since they played right before Sebadoh. There is some connection issue about 4min in, but I was able to rebalance this thing and it sounds pretty nice.
