The Beastie Boys In Store 1994

Posted on


Sharing a store space for many years with Rough Trade was an experience. Our clientele was an eclectic one. Alongside events we would host there were also hundreds of in store gigs held in the basement over the years. None of these I think has been more talked about or revered than the Beastie Boys show which happened on June 12th 1994. The Beastie Boys were on the road promoting their new album Ill Communication which had just come out. This Rough Trade in store kicked off a European tour which ended in their Glastonbury performance later that month. Just recently, footage surfaced of this legendary show and we are glad to be able to bring it to you. Thanks to Ben Escobedo for letting those of us who weren’t there share this historic piece of our shared heritage. Take a trip back in time…
