One of the bands we covered often during our early days was The Slip
. While the band is currently on a dreaded “indefinite hiatus,” we wanted to look back at their Halloween show from 2002. On that night at The Mercury @ Jazz in Austin, TX The Slip delivered two most interesting sets that featured tons of improvisation and the first performance of Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” in five years.
Recently, an extremely crispy recording of most of the show surfaced on Etree. We highly recommend downloading the whole show. Take a listen to The Slip’s Michael Jackson cover from that memorable evening:
