Tripping Daisy- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer FM DAT Master Audio

I have no time today to make funny, so here is the 1st band of the 2nd night of KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas- Tripping Daisy!

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.

Wesley Willis- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer FM DAT Master Audio

Since that musicalifornia didn’t work, here’s something else for today. Wesley also played both nights at the KROQ acoustic xmas, and he had settled down into FULL salesman mode at this show. It is about 50% music and 50% sales pitch. Includes the smash hit “rock and roll mcdonalds”

Bootyquake- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/17/95 Xfer from FM DAT Master Audio

This one is a bit of a mystery. Who are they? How did they get a near-headlining slot at Almost Acoustic Xmas? Who knows. The only thing I found online was that they were one of those “80s disco hits house party bands” at Viper Room. Anyway, enjoy Bootyquake. Or whatever.

Foo Fighters- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/17/95 Xfer from FM DAT Master Audio

Here is the last band on DAT#528. That’s right, there were TEN bands on that one DAT. I have 2,000 DATs and hardly any have been digitized. So, add the 2,000 DATs and 4,000 audio cassettes and thousands of videos together- at this rate of one post per day (counts fingers and toes) I’ll die of old age before we finish here. Buckle up for the long haul, friends.
Foo Fighters start the show with a cool Angry Samoans cover.

OK, back to the mid-90s for you. Someone left a youtube comment asking for this one, so I know at least 1 person will be excited! Includes the mighty MIKE WATT on bass, and also has a short interview after their set. Janes Addiction song for encore.

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.
