  1. Wow! I literally live down the street from what used to be the Sportsman Hall. I was too young to go see any of these shows at the time (I was born in '76). So it's always cool to hear live recordings from my hometown of Sun Valley. Same with Godzilla's. Both were torn/taken down many years ago. The Sportsman Hall is now a tennis court and Godzilla's is a company that makes parts for aircrafts. Thanks for the archives!

  2. thunmb up for the relatively old MIA show

  3. Ah, taqn, you were born too late. Well, at least you can live it through old recordings, photos, flyers etc.

  4. Fantastic...MIA, one of my all-time favorites! Thanks for the awesome posts!
