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.

"However, I can claim to have seen most
of the first appearance of Severe Tire Damage on the MBone!"

Do you remember anything?  Want to say a few words for quotation on the Severe
Tire Damage home page?

I don't remember much about it.  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).
