Meat Puppets - Elite Club, San Francisco 9-12-81

Here's one more post before I take some time off. I got this a few years ago from a guy who didn't mark the venue or the date of the show. According to the in-between song chatter this is the first time they played in San Francisco. Does anyone know the date or the venue? I suspect it is the Mabuhay or maybe the On Broadway about 1981 or 1982. Also, can anyone fill in the song titles? This was recorded from the soundboard and the quality is very good.

  3. Thanks flitox for the information. Do you have song titles?

  4. nope sorry!

    i can add that they played that night with flipper and the dead kennedy's (original setlist can been seen here:

  5. Elite Club is where The Filmore was. You know The Filmore that did all the shows in the 60's for the hippies. Anyways, it would be the Elite Club a few nights a month and have shows. I think the guy from CD Presents had something to do with the shows there. I could be wrong on that one though. The reason I suggest that is he has a bunch of live shows that he has released and many of the releases have the bands playing at that venue. Hope this helps!

  6. Thanks Ken for the information.
