March 3 1994 – Tower Records, Boston MA
personnel: Z
setlist: ??, My Beef Mailbox, ??
tape: guerilla video exists
comments from Bill Carter: this was taken from my video. For some reason Mike, Dweezil and Bryan are all playing what looks like these cheaply made, oddly shaped, very small sized guitars with speakers built right into them while Joe Travers plays a drum kit made up of only a hi-hat and snare drum. The guitars seem really tough to keep in tune but despite these seemingly self inflicted challenges they put on themselves they still perform a few really tight sounding songs and manage to be quite entertaining for a short set of about 20 minutes.
You all may be asking yourselves, could these guys suck anymore, and in all honesty… Yes! Yes we could suck more.

Hi there!

Mike Keneally was performing with BFD in San Diego in September 1994.

The line-up was: MK, Doug Lunn on bass, Toss Panos on drums.

It was an outdoor concert in the university area of San Diego. I
have a handwritten note of Mike’s somewhere he had given me on the
San Diego Street Scene, where he was performing with Z a few days
before the university show.

Hope this helps you to complete your list.
