Secret Show... how awesome would that be

PJ5a1PJ5a1 Posts: 207
I can't help but think how cool it would be for a pop up show in the city this weekend or post Friday night... Night two of Fenway, Eddie made a comment; we feel like a bar band... it would be sweet to witness them playing a dive bar in BK/NYC

One can dream...
My shadow left me long ago...

    Nirvana played an after show at St Vitus in Brooklyn a couple years back

    For such a fan friendly band, I'm shocked they don't do more stuff like this

    And the Murphy's Rooftop.

    Did they actually play anything or just film?

    I heard they played a little, but there weren't fans there, so not really a secret show

    Aerospace '98 :)

    I got to see them in a bar once, but it wasn't a secret show. Radio winners only thing for the Vancouver 2000 show at the commodore. It was pretty sweet. I can't begrudge other pj fans for wanting the same experience. I agree lots of people get left disapointed due to the sheer mass of fans that would want to go.

    I agree with most of the other comments. PJ seems to plan things out now. So while it might not be last second secret, if there is one, I could see it it leaking a day or two in advance?

    Somone told me that they were trying put together something at BAM-which is where Unplugged used to be filmed-but that they wouldn't permit use of the space between those hours (1-4am).

    Other than that, St. Vitus or the dive where they first played NYC were my initial guesses; EV has mentioned it more than once before-who knows...

    What does everyone else think-is anyone else sleuthing out there trying to figure out where this will happen?

    i really wish there was a way to know when and where something awesome will happen. i'm 3 hours away and not going to the rnr hall of fame show. st. vitus would be insane. ive been there before...200 people is PACKING that room in. a dream come true. but shows like this there are always just friends of the owners/band. general public can almost never get in even though they 'sell tickets' or whatever

    Marquee not around anymore so won't be there. a sneaky place they COULD do it if it were to happen is the John Varvatos store aka CBGBs. They have 'special events' there a lot. Saw Gaslight there
    Marquee 91
    Wetlands 91
    CBGB 91
    Roseland 91
    and many, many more

    not as many as you think. around 30-40. I don't travel to see them except this past year when i went to Boston and Chicago.

    If ya seen some of my other posts , i was an intern at Epic Records in 91 and my first job in the music biz was to send the 3 song cassette to the MLB fan club so being around the label during that time i got to see a lot of the early NYC shows.

    That's awesome. Another club show this weekend would be sweet, though highly unlikely.

    That would've been my dream job back in the day. Do you still work in the music business?
