For your, uh, edification. I am now drowning in in shots like this.
This is Shoes' first live gig: at The Brat Stop, Kenosha, Wisconsin, April 8, 1976. The hotel I stayed in was mere steps from this place, though it's burned down and been replaced in the meantime (The Brat Stop, not the hotel). Correct pronunciation for those not from the upper midwest: brAHt, as in Bratwurst: a hot dog stand.
Note: Gary Klebe has no microphone: he was not singing at this point. (Requests have been made by anonymous but interested parties to photoshop out the bellbottoms: these requests have been summarily denied. This is history, people!)
Working on the site now: Boys Don't Lie: A History of Shoes should be available for preorder within a week or two: expected publication, September 09, to correspond with the thirtieth anniversary of Present Tense.
