Hey, Bern!

Twenty-three years ago today, the Eleventh Dream Day/Yo La Tengo caravan pitches our tent in Bern.  We’re met there by Rick Brown, and we put him right to work: he sings “It’s Too Late” and “Neutron Bomb” with us.  The audience, understandably, wants more, so utilizing a twin Rick lineup with the addition of Mr. Rizzo on guitar, we close the evening with “What Goes On.”  (To be completely accurate, we arrived the day before, the 22nd being the first off day of the tour, and went to the cinema to see Madonna: Truth or Dare.)
