2009-03-12 - tick tock! submitted by Michael Marsh

I was working at Anaheim Tower Records and got a promo copy of Boy in January. Some friends heard about the gig, and we were expecting something special.

We showed up in the afternoon to see them arrive off the bus for the soundcheck. I still wonder how or why we did that...

The club was a dive, a big old pool table in the center of the room. $5.50 to get in. Too much for one friend who decided to pass. (Define "regret") We were 18 and 19 and couldn't get a beer. I don't remember if we drank before entering. A band "Second Wind" opened. Rock ballady in a Foreigner way.

There were actually about 100 or so in the audience. The band had barely enough songs for a set, and they played "11 o clock tick tock" a second time as an encore. It was the eve of St. Patrick's Day and they were totally on fire.

Everybody knows them now, but at the time, we seriously thought we'd seen the best band ever. They weren't pompous, corny or lame like so many of the bands of that time. They were uniquely optimistic and sincere.
