Review by JonBaker

JonBaker I remember a couple of things about this show. First was the set list, great Cars-Trucks-Buses, Gotta Jibbo, Mike's Song/Weekapaug Groove and While my Guitar Gently Weeps to end the first set. Second set was solid too. Very good First Tube, Dirt, Sand, Guyute, BBFCM (first time hearing it) and great ending with Drowned. Cavern is one of my favorite songs, so I was happy to hear them end the show with it. The other thing was the weather. I don't know if people remember, but a tornado also hit Xenia that night. During the first set, I remember the wind picking up and of course it started to rain. I saw the speakers on both sides of the stage starting to sway back and fourth from the wind. A roadie came out a looked up at the speakers, went off the side of the stage and came back out with a broom. He tryed to stop the speakers from moving back and fourth with the broom by sticking it to the bottem of the speakers. Needlist to say it didn't work to well, so he gave up. I didn't know how hard it was raining until I turned around to look out at the lawn and see the sky light up from the lighting. I kinda felt sorry for everyone out there. After the break, and they came back for the second set. It started (rain) again only worse. I was in the middle of the pavillion and I could feal the rain blowing on me from the wind. After the show, it had stopped, but from the looks of things, it was pretty bad. Besides puddles everywhere, the lawn area (where alot of people stand on a hill to watch) looked pretty bad. Some people looked like they had been sliding down the hill covered with mud from head to toe. Kinda looked like they were at Woodstock of 69. I'm glad I wasn't one of them.
