I happened to run across this wonderful live performance by the legendary American Punk pioneers Television of “Marquee Moon” at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco in 1978. It’s a perfect gradual get-up-and-get-ready-for-work piece if you have some time, with amazing guitar work by Richard Lloyd and Tom Verlaine. Turn up the volume and enjoy.
