On November 19th, 1989, Tiny Lights played at the Court Tavern in New Brunswick! Tiny Lights originally formed in Hoboken in 1985. According to the Painfully Obscure blog, the band was set to release their third album, Know it You Love, in 1989, but the release was pushed until 1990 because their label had dissolved. Despite this, the master recordings for the album were sent to the pressing plant before Gaia dissolved, and a number of advance tapes were printed up. Though Know It You Love was never officially released, the band released Hot Chocolate Massage in 1990.
From 1988 to 1994 Tiny Lights toured the United States extensively, performing with Michelle Shocked, 10,000 Maniacs, Henry Rollins, in addition to their Hoboken peers, The Feelies and The Bongos.
