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.
This Sebadoh set is WAY better than the one that we saw at Cattle. That one was painful. They do my all time favorite Sebadoh song, Willing to Wait.
