Opening for Kevn & Mickel Kinney & Peter Buck.

...I was suspecting that the opening band may be r.e.m. performing under one of their pseudonyms (e.g., Hornets Attack Victor Mature)
because really, who would name a band the Presidents of the United States of America?
I was ready to roll tape if I recognized anyone getting on stage.
Out came Jason Finn (being a Love Battery fan, I recognized him instantly) and I got ready to record...

And I am really, really, REALLY glad I did. Christ, how could you not love these guys?
What a score to stumble upon and have the extra tapes at the ready!
I went back to Portland and started spreading the gospel of the Presidents to anyone who would listen.
I've got a few other early shows to digitize as well, 1 more from '94 and 1 from '95.
From what I understand from Zeke, this is the earliest Presidents show in circulation.

enjoy, it rocks, and is quite funny to boot. Go figure. If you can't appreciate the Presidents, then your fun muscle is seriously atrophied.
