|02/03/2001||Jeff Ishaq||Well I for one think this is one of the best-sounding AUDs of MMW I have ever heard, and that this show is nothing short of spectacular in terms of content. Maybe I'm biased though. :)|
The show sold-thru and in fact we started a waiting list in the unlikely event that people who had ordered advance tickets did not show up; that is to say, we turned away about 40 people. So there were at least 300 in the theatre (although it is also true that a volunteer allegedly was letting people in thru a side door, and when we settled with the band we only paid them for 300 sellout).
The other funny thing is that AFI had played the night before and we had chargebacks for damage to the seats, and the staff people, for the City of Palo Alto not our own staff, were very wary of further damage, so at one point they turned on the house lights and tried to instruct our ushers to tell the MMW fans to dance closer to their seats, and not rush the stage, and the band played on although I swear I recall John Medeski playing some weird sounds on his organ to mimic and mock the staff, sort of like how the teachers sound in the Charlie Brown tv shows.
I have a cassette of this, maybe by the same people who post here, but I'd like it if someone could pass me this file. Mark Weiss Earthwise Productions of Palo Alto producer of the show
sent to Jeff but bounced back:
Can you please send me the audio file of MMW at Cubberley in 1996?
I was the producer of that event, as well as about 150 other shows in that room in that era. (And I have about 40 hours of recordings, from various sources and media, mostly analog).
I quibble with the comment that only 100 people were there. The show was sold out and we turned away about 40 people.
Are you the one who gave me an analog copy of the show? Were you the only taper there?
Thanks in advance.

I joined db.etree although I admit I am a little in the dark about how it works....
