Galaxie 500

29th August 1987

248 Front St, New York, NY, USA

Notes

Galaxie 500's first ever show.

At summer's end we played a gig at my apartment on Front Street. Naomi made up little flyers for the event.It was the best gig of my life. I didn't break a string. I didn't forget the words. We played for 20 minutes, and it was just perfect.
Dean Wareham, Black Postcards. Penguin Press; 2008.
we definitely played "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" and likely "Walking Song" and "On the Floor" and possibly "Where Have all the Flowers Gone" and "I Can See Clearly Now the Rain is Gone"
