Are you a fan of Elliott Smith like we are? Check out this video

15 years ago I saw Elliott Smith play the Knitting Factory in NYC on New Year’s Eve and it was an amazingly intimate show. I had seen him play a few times back then and he was always great, but this show in particular was such an unforgettable experience. Elliott took a lot of requests, talked to the crowd often, and when we did the countdown into the new year (2000), he opened a bottle of champagne, drank some and then passed the bottle to us and we drank some, too. Then he played “Give Me Love”, a George Harrison cover. Anyway, someone in the crowd videotaped the show and I made sure to get her contact info so I can get a copy of it. Eventually she did send me a copy and I had the VHS tape converted to digital. So I will be posting some of this awesome show on our YouTube channel. Here is the first video. Enjoy:
