I recently remembered that I have an account over at dimeadozen - a bit-torrent-based site for sharing live music. I'm starting to fall back into the habit of downloading music faster than I can listen to it. But hey - I can think of worse habits to have. At least it's free.
One of the recent shows I downloaded was this short, early B-52's set. It's from a radio broadcast in Amsterdam, dated 2-15-80. It's interesting to hear them introduce a song as popular as "Private Idaho" and get virtually no response from the crowd.
The B's don't get enough respect. At one time they were a kick-ass party band. I have a not-so-secret crush on Cindy. Kate seems to get all the attention, but it's Cindy who has my heart. Top 10 Dumbek concert moment: Seeing the B's at the 40 Watt in Athens, standing about 5 feet from Cindy playing bongos and singing "Give Me Back My Man." swoon.
