DollarBill This was actually a really good show to hear. Better than I expected with well played versions of most songs and really rocking overall.

IDK gets things going on a funny note with Fishmanís antics to go along with it. It seems a little early for YEM, but this is a good version though short and sweet. A-Train was nice and smooth and afterwards the calls go out for Undone already. Bag is getting better every time and this one was a little fast. Fee was ok and had a lame ending to it. Mikeís was very solid, Hydrogen was ok, and then Mikeís intro was great going into a rocking Weekapaug. Very well done tonight. Alumni>LTJP continued the rock fest of this first set and were also well played. Then a brief narration by Trey brings us a rare Divided Sky set closer, which was nice and pretty tight. Good first set overall to my ears.

Oh Kee Pa>Suzy was a great way to start the second set and the calls for Sparks start from the crowd. Rocky Top isnít very tight yet, but itís getting there. We get more Mike tonight with a fast grooving Ya Mar and we still have many calls for Sparks between songs. Walk Away rocked, but had an unsure ending. Lizards is also getting there, but not totally tight yet. Antelope rocks straight up. The new Lawn Boy is a nice cool down to hear after all that. Possum brings the energy level right back up and continues the rocking nature of this show. Finally at the end Fishman comes back out and does the crowdís earlier request the last performance of Undone. There are some funny moments here, but itís not my favorite song by any means and a strange way to end a pretty good second set.

Golgi gets the lone encore spot tonight and it was well played.

Really rocking show for late í89, and their first trip to Baltimore. Definitely check this one out. Iím going with four stars to bump the average up because of how solid the show was overall front to back with minimal musical mistakes.

TheEmu Sounds like Trey's voice is struggling a little bit for this gig, but all in all it's solid though average. YEM is pretty solid, and Mike's has a nice little F jam, while Weekapaug gets off to an interesting start with Mike teasing "Life's Been Good." I will also mention that the Ya Mark and Antelope are pretty strong, and I really enjoy Undun and wish J. Edgar Hoover would bring that back (though not as much as I wish he would bring Sexual Healing back). Not too much else to say, just an average-solid show. 3 stars.
