Belatedly -- great post, Lisa. I'd love to see the EMP. You might enjoy the book "Our Band Could be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground, 1981-1991" by Michael Azerrad-- one of my absolute fave books about popular music. It tells the story of the rise of the alt/indie scene that spawned Nirvana very compellingly. I have a special fondness for it because the chapter on Dinosaur Jr. reports at some length about a show the band performed in Nagatuck CT in 1987 or 1988 (during which they temporarily broke up) at which I was one of about 12 audience members...

Ivan! Thanks for the tip. Do you know about the Rude Mechs show Lipstick Traces, based on Greil Marcus' book? Their first national success and one of my top two favorite RM pieces.
