Mini-show at the afterparty for the band’s show that evening. Rare performances of Hardcore-era songs. David Kendrick hadn’t heard two of the three songs before playing them.

Newly appended to this show in 2020 is a recently surfaced recording of the soundcheck for the performance! This recording likely captures David Kendrick’s first shot at playing these songs. Most songs are only partially performed/recorded. According to David P., who made the recording:

“I was a college radio DJ In Philly at the time, and Enigma records arranged for me to interview the band in NYC after their Palladium sound check. Since I had my tape recorder for the interview I hit record for the sound check. But the sound check went very badly as you can tell from the recording (my favorite part by far is Gerry’s speech about how bad things happen over and over but good things just once) and they didn’t have time or didn’t want to do the interview afterwards, which bummed me out.”
