On January 23, 1999, Superchunk played the Bowery Ballroom for the very first time! This show would be the band's first of many performances at this Lower East Side statple, as I had the pleasure of catching them at the Bowery during the "I Hate Music" tour back in 2013.  Oh, and they'll be back in April for a two-night stand with the newly reunited Swearin'!

Superchunk would go on to release their seventh studio album, "Come Pick Me Up," in August of 1999.  They identified several of these "new" songs throughout their set.
