Goo Goo Dolls at Maxwell's (03-09-1991)


On March 9, 1991, The Goo Goo Dolls played Maxwell's! Long before the Goo Goo Dolls exploded onto the mainstream with that song from that movie City Of Angels, they were your average-blue collar punk band from Buffalo, NY.  After doing the rounds in Buffalo opening for seminal punk bands such as SNFU, Dag Nasty, ALL, The Dead Milkmen, Gang Green, and Doughboys, the band began touring regularly in the late 1980s. This set at Maxwell's took place shortly after the band released their third full-length, "Hold Me Up," in 1990.  Before the Goos reached superstardom in the late 90s, they had the opportunity to collaborate with Paul Westerberg for the song "We Are The Normal" from their 1993 album, "Superstar Car Wash."
