Meat Puppets - Madison Square Gardens, Phoenix - 26 March 1983
That's right folks! Mad Gardens :)
I'm really excited about this one. You see, Madison Square Garden or Mad Gardens as it was affectionately known, was a magical place. It was probably one of the only venues in Phoenix's early punk history that was nearly indestructible. Pull out bleachers, band in the wrestling ring, publicity photos of has-been small-time wrestlers adorning the walls...It was like the rowdy punk rock equivalent of the company family picnic.
And wouldn't you know it - Thomas Randal Farnsworth has a website with photos and flyers from that very night here
As an added bonus with this show are three instrumental cuts that sound like rehearsal from around the same era. The audio quality is very good with the exception of it being a bit lopsided. All graciously provided by Joe Z.
