Big Star - Portland, OR 2002

Dante’s
Portland, OR
Dec. 28, 2002
11th Anniversary of this show
Happy Birthday LX Chilton (R.I.P.)

audience recording (sound quality VG; good sound for a club show; audience is enthused but respectful, so no crowd noise issues; there’s very slight distortion on occasion, but it’s not a big deal)
