I was 11 years old, and my family and I stayed in the Burlington area every year for a few weeks during the summer. Apparently we heard the music from the playground area of Battery Park and wandered over to have a look. I had no idea at the time who or what I was watching, which is crazy considering the love for the band that I have now. The only reason I remembered this show was from some photos in a family album I saw recently, then the memories came flooding back!
Someone alluded to the dust in the park, and that was certainly the case down front as a bunch of people were jamming out and kicking it up. I vividly remember Contact as the closer with the horn section, and its catchy "Sesame Street" esque sing along quality. A very festive atmosphere all over town that day, as the crowd spilled over to Church Street afterwards where we had dinner at an outdoor cafe. My first show ever, if you can count it as such!
