Wasn't this performance at Rose Records? November 29, 2009
Written by jlauer
Iím embarrassed to say that I just found this performance available on the DMG website. I immediately downloaded it. I was at this show and it was my first (of now many) live experiences with RF. Watching Robert perform with just his guitar and a tape machine in the back of a record store was amazing. I had always wished I could relive this show and what do you know, here it is.
However, unless RF did two performances in Chicago during this time, I remember him playing at Rose Records, not the Sound Warehouse. Rose Records was on Ashland Avenue, just north of Belmont (I found a picture at: http://digital.chipublib.org/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/rwk&CISOPTR=229&CISOBOX=1&REC=6). I remember buying a copy of ďIn the Wake of PoseidonĒ for Robert to sign after the show. I already owned ĎExposureí and being a poor (and cheap) college student (with a desire to get an autograph) I instead bought one of the only KC albums I didnít own at the time.
Regardless of the location, itís great to hear this again.

As a music fan all I can say is that going to a record shop/warehouse and hearing one of my favourite performers playing live could have been the most welcome surprise. Unfortunately it never happened: all Frippertronics gigs took place so far from Read more
