Review by ADAWGWYO

ADAWGWYO Only time I ever got backstage. My friend "P" got em and she took me to meet Mike. Don't remember much except shaking his hand and seeing a hot tub back there with lots of people(girls) partying. Beer was already drained from the cooler. Saw Fishman back there but not, Trey or Page. You think the view of the river is sweet from the seats, imagine partying backstage in a hot tub. I then walked a long ways back to the onsite camping and partied into the morning. "P" stayed behind and raged like she always did.

Only trip to the Gorge so far and it culminated a 4 show journey from Phoenix, up the coast on the 1(mostly, sometimes 101) to Shoreline and then the Gorge. Unfortunately skipped Ventura to do some touristy stuff but it was cool. It was my first real time spent in California and I wanted and see some stuff. Smoked pot on the steps of 710 Ashbury and hung out in the Haight. Necessary stuff I thought at the time.

I've read a lot of Grate reviews about GD shows at Ventura and hind sight I would've loved to go and see it for myself. I guess it's a shitty venue but the locale next to the ocean totally makes up for it. Also of course for that Gin->Cities.

Anyways these Gorge shows were real good. Not a bad show of the 4 I saw that Summer of 97. Each one having some spectacular jams/song selection. The night before this is the better of the 2 imo, but this is still above average.

Solid 3, maybe 4. I give it a 4 in a 5 point scale.
