Old 97s- Starry Plough, Berkeley Ca. 8/8/97 Direct xfer from 8mm Master Tape!

Here’s a video of the Old 97s in their prime- back when Rhett was nerdy and he beat his acoustic guitar so badly that it caused an arm injury. The unique aspect of this show is that Philip Peeples is not on drums- he had an inner ear infection so former manager Mike Schwidler is doing the honors (and does quite well). The show itself is a drunken party- they are playing a pub- and the atmosphere is loose and fun. In fact, Rhett drops a lollipop out of his mouth and kicks it from the stage mid-song.. and nails someone in the front row! It was funny. Enjoy! Filmed with a Sony TR-81 camera.
