Scene Is Now - New York City 1997

Westbeth Theatre
New York, N.Y.
Oct. 31, 1997

opening for Yo La Tengo

The Scene Is Now: avant-garde, eccentric jazz-rock-pop
audience recording (sound quality: VG+; a really nice audie; no complaints — unless you really wanted to hear the between-song announcements, which are kinda low volume)
REPERCUSSION: Will Rigby played drums on the band’s 1988 album Tonight We Ride and has sometimes played live gigs with the band, as he does here.

MUCH THANKS to the taper and to Brandon for sharing.
