Ten YEARS Man: Giovannis Edition
Ten years ago tonight, the Mojo Wire played Giovanni's Pizza in Isla Vista, for the first and only time. It was our second-to-last show and probably our best show. Sadly, the existing recording doesn't do it justice, since ye olde Tascam 4-track crapped out immediately and we only got good signals from the vocals, bass, and drums. However it was a typically scattershot, beer-soaked show, so maybe I'm not remembering things properly. Honey White played three Gios shows of their own, but the Mojos were the groundbreakers here. Clearly, it was the first stepping stone to certain world stardom and glorious adulation.
