Maybe you know for sure and can help me out?
In any case, Sarge continued the long, proud tradition of Champaign, Illinois noisy power pop. They were always great live.
I was already a huge fan of Franklin—great name for a band from Philly, eh?
Some of Franklin’s recordings were produced by dub reggae icon and King Tubby protege, Scientist, who was pretty obscure in 1998 outside of DJ circles (in the 21st century Scientist finally started getting the props he deserves).
I interviewed Franklin (specifically guitarist/vocalist Brian Sokel) at Speak In Tongues at the April show, and our discussion appeared in the August 1998 issue of U.S. Rocker.
I wish I had pics of openers Caramel (later Viva Caramel) and The Unknown. Brian and Brian and Ken were important SIT people for many years. We wouldn’t still be talking about the place without their efforts!

Now to the photos…
If you have more details about this show, you can comment on this post (it’s simple: register with WordPress, then you’re good to go).
Can you help me with details about these other SIT photos?
