Well this was my good buddies college dorm show basically. The next night we went to Huden dinning hall in the cafateria for Adams hall and a few other dorms at castleton. My friend Grady and I along with some random folks in the dorm and my brother who was at Johnson State were all partying before hand and then went downstairs to check out the venue. Who did we see but Fishman lugging his drums and trey grabbing a few amps and we gave them a hand and chatted them up about how tight the band was...we loved helping out and made 3 trips back to their truck to grab stuff. It was fun. The place had a black and white checkered hallway and like real nice valour furniture of reds and dark greens and the place was sort of like a medievil looking dungeon...or so at the time it seemed like it. There was no stage they were floor level. I recall fire being really crazy at the end of the show. The next night was at my school in time!

TheEmu This is a solid show, no doubt about it. No crazy, signature jams, but good versions of Melt, Ya Mar, AC/DC Bag, Hood and Slave. Good sound, too! The sum of its parts was almost enough, IMO, to put this into 4 star territory, but not quite. So I'll go with three, but its a high three.

DollarBill I only got to listen to a little more than half of this show, but I wasnít too impressed with what I heard overall.

The recording I heard comes in at My Sweet One, which was ok, just not totally tight yet. Same thing for Gin and Antelope, its not that they didnít rock, itís just not the tightest playing Iíve ever heard from these guys.

Hood was ok, and I still feel like they arenít locking in all the way with each other. Tela is still getting its final arrangement so there are mistakes and rough parts in this one. Timber sounds very rusty, like they havenít played it in a while and so did Slave for that matter. IDK was fine with the usual Fishman antics included. YEM had some rough parts as Fishman fell off at one point making the climax a little lame tonight, plus parts of the recording are cut so there is no tramps section and Pageís solo pretty much gets cut and it picks up at Treyís part, which is a nice jam. Mikeís part was short and I found it interesting on this one that Fishman keeps drumming through most of the vocal jam at the end, which was then also cut on the recording and then faded out. Possum rocked, but had a rough beginning. Not the greatest playing in this rough second set.

The new Lawn Boy gets the first encore spot tonight and was pretty well done and then a rocking, but sloppy Fire finishes up the night.

Not nearly as good as last nightís Baltimore show, but maybe I missed some gems in the first set?
