SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE PLAYS THE FIRST LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE ON THE INTERNET
On June 24, 1993, Severe Tire Damage becomes the first band to perform live on the internet. Performing from the patios of Xerox PARC, they are broadcast onto the Internet Multicast Backbone (the "MBone"). They are seen and heard live as far away as Australia. Anna Karlin is with the band then. MBone engineering is by Ron Frederick and Steve Deering of the Computer Science Lab at Xerox PARC.

It looked like everyone was having a good time out on the patio. I recall that there were dancers, except that slow video does less justice to dance than lo-fi audio does to music. I guess all I could say would be to quote all the people who said of Woodstock, "I was there" (remotely). -- Steve
