Recorded live in San Francisco at The Great American Music Hall. I ended up missing this show because the tickets sold out in a minute. The venue is 2000 capacity and it puzzled me that it happened, even with two nights! To say I like Cocksparrer is an understatement. I love them...it seems San Francisco does too! This recording was teaken from the second time that they have visited our fine area. I did get to see them the first time when they came through however. I got to hang out with Mick (drummer for The Business) and watch him flirt with my wife...which I found amusing. He's a good guy! Anyways this performance is top notch, energetic and full of hits and some cuts of their last album. In fact, my old bandmate Shea mixed this album! Enjoy it, as I am right now as I am listening to it. Funny thing about this show in 2009, I was at a reggae/rocksteady Dj thing in Santa Cruz dancing away and their were a bunch of skins from SJ... Well, from my understanding that it was going to kick off at one of the two shows. I met these guys and proceeded to annoy the shit out of them to the point that they wanted to maybe take it out on me. Considering that I am part of the old guard and my surroundings were in safe confines nothing happened. To say these guys were probably the most stupid morons I have encountered I was suprised that they knew how to drive from San Jose to Santa Cruz that night. Even more impressive was that they knew who Cocksparrer were. I bet that they thought that they were going to some National Socialist meeting for Hitler's Pansy Division.
