This show was part of the "1990 Tour."
This show is fun to watch! There aren't too many videos out there with this much visual focus on the actual playing. There also aren't that many as clear as this one. The pixelation is great - you can see the band clearly, as well as the audience.
Another note, towards the end the camera shows a shot of the audience from the stage and this venue is awesome! There is a huge slope (of course! It's a ski club!) on which people are hanging out. Very scenic.
I spent most of their set just behind and to the right of the center camera angle, up the hill slightly.
The show is totally standard fare. One set, no frills, no major jams, but it is another fun show from the era. Although the YEM was weak, Mike's hat definitely made up for it. Mike Gordon was a true hipster before hipsters.
As for the rest of the show, pretty high energy stuff (especially the Divided Sky!), but a lot of repeats. If you're looking for a show to listen to from this era, this one might be worth your time. It's not the best show from the month, but it's got a video, and that's worth something! 3/5 stars.
