BozakAxel Ok, so I'm jaded rating this show so high... because it was my first show. Prior to this I had declined a ticket to see them in Albany; the 20 minute blocks of noise my college roommate played just didn't make sense to me yet. It sounded more like the blurry gray haze of old analog channel 3, then of musical magic. But a road trip to Philly? Sure, I was down to give them a shot... and I never looked back.

I've never successfully found a copy of this show, so I'm yet to relive and digest the performance, but from what I remember it was the atmosphere that changed me and my music interests forever.

The lot scene. Wooks. Shakedown. Everyone cheering, dancing, before the lights even went down. The vibe was amazing. The playfulness of the band during Fishman's vac solo with the BAH cymbals, sprinting in circles around the stage.

The funk. The soaring jams. It all finally made sense.
