ROB SEZ: Ya never know when a lost gem might show up. This 1999 live set by the Minneapolis alt-pop group the Hang Ups surfaced recently, so I had to share it. HUGE THANKS to the taper & sharer (see above). You might find some more goodies hiding around here if you look...

FLAC (I'm sharing the 1999 NYC set in lossless as well as lossy. The 2013 set, however, is only available in lossy, and it's included in both downloads)

REPERCUSSION: Mitch Easter and Don Dixon produced the band's 1999 album Second Story (AllMusic Album Pick, 4-star rating).

Learn more about the Hang Ups' music at Trouser Press and Wikipedia. You can purchase a lossless download of the band's self-titled 2003 album at Bandcamp.
