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?
