Remember when we were talking about Chris D.’s STONE BY STONE the other day? Check out this June 24th, 1989 show in LA, and the band order. I moved out of Southern California back to San Francisco the week before this, where I continue to live to this day, but you best believe I would have been at this show had it been two weeks earlier.

Later that summer I saw Nirvana third on a bill, before Vomit Launch and Mudhoney, in San Jose. As it turned out, posterity will record the best band on this LA bill as beingĀ Claw Hammer, totally at their peak in mid-year ‘89.
