Sublime/Sublime Fox Theatre 4.20.1995 bootleg


Hi I was wondering if you know where I can purchase a CD of the bootleg made at the Fox Theatre in Boulder CO on 4/20/1995.  It was the 1st show I attended at the Fox and would love to obtain a copy for old times sake.
Thanks - Jason

Hi Jason,

That is known in the bootleg circles as "Contact Buzz" and is a great show. But the bootleg is actually just the audio pulled from a VHS tape, so it has more crowd noise and static.

There does exist a full and uncut soundboard version of it. I'd recommend eBay, but be wary of the difference between soundboard and what is common and called "Contact Buzz".

If you want the soundboard and don't have luck, I could send it to you along with a whole collection of unreleased shows, bootlegs, interviews, etc. You'll have to pay expenses and some of my time though. Email me: mdmaguirespam AT comcast DOT net

Best of luck,

Guarantee: you will receive an answer within 2 days of posting the question -- whether it is a referral to a different expert or a straight answer to your question. I can answer most questions about the band, the significance of the lyrics, the show dates, the unreleased albums and tracks, misinformation, and, above all, I am an expert on their influences and related music. Additionally, if you're looking for that hard to find track or a cheap alternative to the $300 book Crazy Fool: Portrait of a Punk, I might be able to help.


I have been a huge fan for 16 years, I ran a server which distributed Sublime's live and unreleased music 24/7 for 4 years, I have answered questions about the band daily for a decade on their old website, and I know some of the largest collectors in the world. I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview.

I did not study music in college, but I majored in English, so I can write a clear response. I worked as a research assistant in the past, so I have skills in research if I need to figure out an answer.

Past/Present Clients
Sublime fans aren't my clients, but I have distributed swag and rare tracks to all those who want them for years at little cost.
