"During early 1997, Lance Bangs was curating events in the back room of Jittery Joe’s, a Washington Street coffee house a few doors up from the 40 Watt. The space, which Lance informally called The Starlit Crypt, hosted spoken word readings, film projections and the occasional free live performance. On March 7 [Jeff's "Live at Jittery Joe’s" was recorded]. Jeff’s performance, which Lance documented in a dimly lit video included on the CD, was an important one. It represented the first public, hometown performance of material that would appear in slightly different forms on In The Aeroplane Over The Sea." (from the 33 1/3 book by Kim Cooper)
