WaldkirchThe Walkabouts - 1990-05-25 Waldkirch, Germany

This is a special request for one of the first shows The Walkabouts played in Germany in a real small venue. Surely not the best sound, but of great historical value. I`m sure Carla has some memories of that, she used to live in Freiburg in another lifetime. Enjoy!
