XTC on David Letterman 6/30/89 + Tonight Letterman/XTC Tribute-in Minnesota

So fitting to find this, although I recall once before, probably last year finding it after the XTC tribute.

But tonight, May 20th, 2015, on the day/night of David Letterman's final Late Show/Late Night hosting show (as far as we know), a friend of mine tracks this video down of XTC on there on June 30th, 1989. On "Late Night" on NBC, the show I preferred like many of David Letterman's.

But also it so happens that tonight is the 3rd? Annual XTC Tribute/Benefit at the Icehouse in Minneapolis.

So, this could not be more fitting. I'm going to head out now and have some dinner at The Icehouse finally (inspired by Dara Moscowitz-Grumdahl's endorsements I recall on WCCO Radio).
