sadly i have only witnessed built to spill live, once. every time they came around i was either too busy, lazy, drunk, broke, or any random combination to attend. i dont remember much of the performance, but they did kick my ass something fierce. it was like doug martsch firmly grabbed, but not too hard, my nuts for an hour and half and had his way with them. by the end of the evening my soul and my bones were shaking in a way that only my bloody valentine and the truckers have ever accomplished. so the only way i have to even slightly relive that glorious evening is through the random live recordings i have accumulated over the years.
