Lithium Milkshake-Live at Club Boomerang, 1992

Located at the west end of Haight St. in San Francisco from 1991 to 1998, Boomerang was a bar that would book any band. It did not have the air of exclusivity so vital for musicians' egos and their prospective fans' tastes. The stage was at least 9 feet off of the ground, so bands found themselves playing literally over the heads of any who might have been in attendance at a show.
The end of the longer clip features Lithium Milkshakes "end of set noise jam", something that I always enjoyed partaking in. I can recall one show at Gilman St. where we had a huge truck wheel well, made of steel. It sounded great, but damn it was heavy to schlep.
