Sceneroller, The Jazz Gallery, 1983, April 10 (Sun), The Violent Femmes

This is where I saw the Femmes, June 1981. It was a formative experience that pushed me to strip down my sound in my own bands over the years. The band did a wonderful cover of "Last Time."

Jason Brownell and I were inspired by the Violent Femmes' performance of "Flamingo Baby" to sit down the next morning and write a song called "Pig Glue Igloo," which followed me from band to band for a good 15 years. :-)
