Donner Party- Slim’s, SF 4/12/00 Sam Coomes from Quasi’s early band!

Have you ever been “late to the party” with a band? Well, Donner Party became one of my favorite bands in the early ’90s because I saw them play at UC David Coffeehouse in 1989. They blew me away. I had my video camera there and did not film because I was worried about running out of batteries (D’oh!)… so I figured I would just catch them next time. Then they broke up and I was to never see them again, or so I thought. In 2000, Innerstate records released their discography in a 2-CD set and they played a one-off show for it’s release. This was the only show they did, 10 years later. I know, because I approached Sam about doing a show in Sac and he politely declined. 🙂 This is my Sony TR-81 video mixed with Jason Sherrett’s Sonic Studios DAT recording. For Melanie Clarin DeGiovanni and anyone else who still loves and remembers the band.

This is part 1 only- you can find the rest of the show on Youtube
