1998/1999 PTL Minneapolis shows

Postby phabletzza » Tue Dec 30, 2014 1:58 pm

Hi all-
First post, I joined the board to see if anyone can help me unravel a Pedro The Lion mystery. After recently seeing David Bazan + PSQ in Minneapolis, I was reminded of the first Pedro The Lion show I saw, back at Coffee Shock, a short lived venue in a St. Paul suburb. I clearly remember the show + venue and actually took a bunch of black and white photographs at the show that I just noticed appear to be the same show that the photo on the cover of the Helicopter 7" was taken at.

So I'm trying to get to the bottom what the date of that show was. I have a poster, that I thought I picked up at the time, advertising a show by Pedro The Lion on 3/2/1999 at Coffee Shock. Consulting the Pedro The Lion tour history on David Bazan's site indicates that a show was played that date, but it was actually at the 7th Street Entry. This sounds vaguely familiar - the show was scheduled for Coffee Shock and then ended up getting moved to 7th Street Entry. I also was recently gifted a different flyer for a 10/22/1998 show at Coffee Shock that seems to match the tour history, but I don't remember Damien Jurado playing at the show I was at (though I may just have came late/left early).

SO! Any Minneapolis PTL fans - does anyone know if there was only a single Pedro The Lion show at Coffee Shock? And was it 10/22/98?

Man, if you asked this question like 5 years ago I think you'd get an answer. Today, I think it will remain a mystery.
Reason cannot help you if you don't shut up!

Just noticed this thread, and you'll probably never see this, but I was at that Coffee Shock show. Damien "Toiletfuck" Jurado DID play at the show, and 10/22/98 sounds correct. Also, here's a video I recorded of the Pedro set:

Hah, awesome, we must have both been right up front! Thanks for the video, I'll have to watch when I'm off work. Mystery resolved!

Ah man, just compared the video to my photos and they're definitely different shows, both at Coffee Shock. So maybe 2 shows were at Coffee Shock, and the video is from the later (1999) show? The photos show a slightly younger looking band, at least facial hair-wise.

Dave's website used to have a very comprehensive tour date history. Have you tried just emailing bob@undertowmusic.com and asking him to check his logs?

EDIT- oh derps. You mentioned the tour history. Anyway. Email Bob.
