the elbo room. tuesday. november 30, 1999. 10pm.
Our first show of the new year, made extra special by the first appearance of Chris's new Honey Amber drumset. Special thanks to Mike, the sound man from the elbo room, for making this one of the best sounding shows yet, and thanks to the residents of 1619 Ridge F1 for bringing out friends and making the whole thing a truly "organic" experience. We played with Sober Dozy, a really great band, but stylistically about as different as you could imagine. A highlight was when they were sound-checking their roaring hard rock guitars and we were stage side with Travis was teaching us how to moonwalk. Thanks to all who came out from Hyde Park, Africa, and Sweden(!)
