J Mascis- Mccabe’s Guitar Shop, Santa Monica 5/7/95 xfer from DAT Master

So I was talking to Charlie Passarel and I mentioned that I audiotaped J Mascis on his first solo trek out west. J was clearly nervous- he made a mistake early in the set and ended a song abruptly, in the middle of a lead and looked around to see if anyone noticed. It made me laugh. He settled down and played a killer set. Man, I loved going to McCabes when I lived in L.A.
Oh and PS: I opened up the DAT case to transfer this one today, and there was the ticket stub. So you get that as well.

Buffalo Tom- McCabe’s, Santa Monica Ca. 6/11/94 Late Set part 1 direct from Hi8 Master

This was such a great show. Buffalo Tom, who was very popular in ’94, played the time McCabe’s for 2 acoustic shows. BT acoustic shows were rare, which made it even more special. I have a vivid memory of the entire front row of the seated crowd, “headbanging” while sitting to their song “Larry”. It was funny and awesome. The people looked like those old fashioned toy birds that dipped their noses in water, then back up. Great stuff. I hope my excitement over the show did not affect my filming job too much- I was really excited about this one! Filmed with Sony TR81.

Meat Puppets- McCabes Guitar Shop, Santa Monica Ca. 10/3/92 Xfer from DAT Soundboard Master

There was a window of about 10 months between moving to L.A. in 8/92 and my first child being born. I went to a lot of shows in that time- Midwest to see Uncle Tupelo 5 times, Uncle Tupelo again in Socal in Feb of 93, and a ton of local shows. I think this was the first time I went to McCabes. Davo (MP Soundman) did a great job with the mix- the room is small and they were a bit loud if I remember correctly.
