Fade to '98
"Fade to '98" shows the viewer some moving Richmond postcards from late in the 20th century. The soundtrack by Don' Ax Me ... Bitch was grabbed using a camcorder during a live performance at the Texas-Wisconsin Border Cafe on a Saturday afternoon. Mike McAdam was sitting in.
The footage used here was shot for various purposes over several years. It was cobbled together 13 years ago for a reason that doesn't matter now. In 2011 it's a time capsule showing Joe Sheets performing on guitar, as well as a clip of the legendary bookstore cat, Gus, of Biff's/Carytown Books fame.
