Dada: Live: Official Bootleg Volume I
It’s appropriate that the best rock trio to emerge since the early 1990s has issued its first official live collection on Santa Ana-based Coach House Records. After all, guitarist Michael Gurley, bassist Joie Calio and drummer Phil Leavitt may be based in L.A., but the band performed its first official show at the Coach House in 1991 (opening for Mary’s Danish), and the new CD was recorded at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana on July 19.
Live: official bootleg (vol. 1) doesn’t feature that night’s complete breathtaking 2 1/2-hour set, but it features the majority of the highlights, including a razor-sharp version of “Dim” and psychedelic “Trip With My Dad.” Dada celebrates the release of the CD with a show at the Coach House at 8 p.m. Nov. 29. Buena Park’s Beyond 7 will open. For more information, visit www.coachhouserecords.com or www.dadatheband.com.
