RunawayJim4180 Must hear versions of Possum and Reba! The macaroni and cheese boxes add a surprising percussive element to Possum, well done!

Cant believe there's not a review of this show yet. If I'm not mistaken this became the "Simple" bootleg, at least by '98......

This is my favorite version of Reba ever.......

sirchandestroy I was there, and it was my one and only birthday show. I went to all of the four bars, two upstairs, two downstairs, and collected a free Sierra Nevada Pale Ale from each. As for the show, I really don't remember too much, as it was 16 years ago now and we had gone pretty hard the first two nights and the aforementioned four beers were not my only libations. The first two nights were comparatively tame, and this one stands head and shoulders above. I recall snippets: the opera singer, the girl who played violin (from Camper Van Beethoven?), a six foot bong some guy had between the taper section and the pit, watching DownerMan dance in the first row of the balcony, taping (and staying) with AssholeMan, noticing that Paula Poundstone was on the marquee as soon as we left the theatre:

Here's the official poster, as well:

All in all a good run which would have been mediocre without this gem.
