The Suburbs 8/17/83 “EQ’ed at Loring Park” Highlights 8-track tape

Most of my posts are music from cassettes- this one is from an 8-track tape.  Here are The Suburbs at their peak.

Thanks to Suburbs’ archivist Terry Katzman for allowing me to put these tracks up. Big thanks to Craig Godeke & Ron Perkins for providing photos from this show.

    Hey, this is really great to discover. I still got a few slides of the band I shot from this show. Kids in the trees and stuff. What a great summer memory.

    Oh, man, I was there. I was 16 years old, and it felt so hugely cool to be in Minneapolis listening to the coolest band at that time. What a great memory.
