It must have been quite rewarding for Slumberland Records Mike Schulman that at the 20th Anniversary concerts, bands seemed to come out of the woodwork to play for him. The Ropers released one album and few 7″ records for Slumberland, but had broken up in the mid-90’s and had not released any new material since 1995. But at the anniversary concerts, as they opened with “Waiting” from their debut 7″, The Ropers sounded very much like they had fifteen years ago — tight, melodic dream-pop music.

This set was recorded as have been all the other ones from this show, and this particular mix is quite excellent. Enjoy!
