This is a really nice video. Shot side-stage, the music as well as the vocals are very audible. We get some real nice shots here and the lighting is great as well. On top of that, the guys seem really into it. There’s been some speculation as to whether or not this is actually shot at CBGB’s, if anyone can verify for sure, please contact me and let me know.
*Update* - Just received some good verification that this video is in fact filmed at the famous CBGB's club in NYC. See below words from Mike Korman:
"I had played CBGB’s many times between 1982 and 1987, with 4 different bands. I’d say that the 1991 video was shot at CBGB’s for several reasons:
It was shot from the side, which at CBGB’s, the side was open to the audience. “Stage Right” or the left side facing the stage was about 8 feet wide and led to the so-called dressing rooms and the bathroom. The person videotaping had a great position. Only one drawback – the PA speakers were right there in your ear if you could stand it and you can see the one to the right hanging from the ceiling next to Helios.
Also, the stage was not large in that club. It had a small drum riser, with a wall behind it – just as is shown in the video. Of course, like every wall at CBGB’s, bands wrote their band graffiti on the walls and you can see that also.
I’d say that video was shot in CBGB’s. It just looks like I remember it."
