unknown shows / recordings
Danger Mouse • To Damascus: On the tape it sounds like Danger Mouse were supposed to be playing with a band named To Damascus, but they didn't show up, so the band played a 90 minute set. This is possibly from early March of 1988.

Forced Entry: On side A of the Nirvana 03/19/88 tape. Probably took place shortly before the Nirvana gig.

unknown band: On side B of the 12/19/87 Steel Pole Bath Tub tape.
