Videos from my musical past are starting to surface. I knew they were out there – it’s just been a long time since I’ve played or seen any live stuff.
I tried to convince myself that it was ok that I didn’t have any videos from shows I’ve done – but I have to be honest – coming across this video has really tickled me!
I remember this show. It was put on by Ivy Vale and was a tribute to Roky Erickson, founder of the 13th Floor Elevators. Ivy created these events called the Mind’s Eye, and this was the last Mind’s Eye event that I am aware of. Super groovy cuddly party vibe! I think this show happened in April, 1995, at a club called The Lion’s Den.
I think there is a video of the entire set – this is the second song of the set. It’s called Are You Gonna Be There (At the Love In) by the Chocolate Watchband.
