NOTE: Minneapolis maidens Kat Bjelland, Lori Barbero, and Michelle Leon united in 1987 to create what became one of the most revered female rock bands of all time.
This bootleg is Babes In Toyland first gig at the Entry - a rock and alternative rock music venue in downtown Minneapolis - with Dinosaur - before they were called Dinosaur Jr. - in 1988.
Band member Barbero’s fond First Ave memories are legion - including stage-diving during a Nirvana show and winning money at disco dance competitions in high school. Most vividly, she recalls the jitters before Babes’ first show in the Entry. “I was doing sound check and in the monitor and I hear, ‘Okay, kick drum,’” she remembers. “I knew what that was because it’s obviously the one you kick with your foot. ‘Okay, hit the snare.’ And I just sit there looking at him and I’m just shaking. And he goes, ‘Hit the snare - can you hear me?’ And I go ‘Yeah…’ Then I sat down really quietly into the microphone and whisper, ‘Which one is the snare?’ And everyone just starts laughing. I just wanted to die.”
A historic concert!
