More Info:

Flamin' Groovies perform at the Vaillencourt Fountain with the same line-up as the group that recorded on Sire Records. The Flamin' Groovies perform live at the Vaillencourt Fountain with the same line-up as the group that recorded for Seymour Stein on Sire Records. The fountain is located in Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco and was completed 2 years after the Groovies played there. It may be best known for a 1987 concert by U2, just starting their Joashu Tree tour, when Bono famously spray painted on the fountain and was both praised and criticized for his actions. This soundboard recording was confusingly called "Jumpin' In The Night", otherwise known as "Valencourt Plaza" where it was recorded. The concert serves to document a typical Groovies gig of the time with staples like "Shake Some Action", "Tell Me Again" and "First Plane Home", covers of "Feel A Whole Lot Better", Moby Grape's "Fall On You", the odd Beatles and even NRBQ's "I Want You Bad". The performance was broadcast live on KSAN
