Mojo Nixon @ The Lion's Lair, 1999-08-26

I saw Mojo Nixon again not long after this show when he played at the now long gone LODO music fest.  He was walking across the the asphalt in front of all the stages when I saw him and called out to him.  We welcomed him to Denver and he asked if we had seen him at the Lion's Lair the summer before.

I told him that I had indeed seen that show and was excited to she him preform again that night.  He then says "Some crazy fool posted that Lion's Lair show online complete with a track called "Mojo Takes A Shit" ".  I asked him if he was OK with that and he said "I don't care I'm not some asshole like Metallica!"

Then I told him that I was the person that recorded the show and showed him my recording gear.  He smiled and said that it was cool.  Then he asked me if I had any drugs.  I was not holding so we wished each other well and away he went.

The recording today is from that Lion's Lair show and as alluded to earlier he indeed leaves the stage mid song to go take a shit.  If any of you have ever been to the Lion's Lair before you know that the bathroom isn't a pretty site.  There is no door on the stall and it can't have been very clean.

Mojo ever the professional came right back to the stage after a few minutes and picked up right where he left off.  This was one of the funnest shows that I have ever seen.

This show was one of the very first things I ever had posted back in the early days of high speed internet.  I traded it out on CDR to several people and one of them that ran a Mojo Nixon fan page had it on his site.  This is a new fresh transfer from the original minidiscs and knowing what I know now I think it is a big improvement.
