Rain Parade – Maxwells, Hoboken, NJ 12/2/83

The folks attending this early December gig at Hoboken’s legendary Maxwells got an early Christmas present with a visit from one of L.A.’s rising stars.  From the notes of the original taper, the Rain Parade had some competition with an inordinately chatty audience.  Nonetheless, the paisley vibe was discernible, with a huge oriental rug occupying half of the standing room (or in this case, sitting room with a good bit of the audience seated on the tapestry).  Standards such as “What She’s Done to Your Mind,” ‘Saturday’s Asylum” and a run through Syd Barrett’s “It’s No Good trying” are present and accounted for.   A fascinating memento for Rain Parade aficionados of what was apparently a very unique gig.  A special thanks to whomever digitized this set and supplied sleeve art.
