Humphries House had been a Zeta Upsilon ("Zu") frat house and monthly parties used to occur there that were referred to as "Full Moon at the Zoo" parties. A fire alarm sounded as Fluffhead moved into the Clod segment of Fluff’s Travels, which caused the building to be evacuated. When the band retook the stage, they started up a humorous pass at You Shook Me All Night Long and then dove back into Fluff’s Travels. Fire was dedicated to the “brave men” who turned off the fire alarm. Suzy contained Sailor's Hornpipe teases from Trey. Trey and Page teased Blue Monk in Possum. Bowie included a brief Frosty the Snowman jam in the intro, as well as a Riders on the Storm tease from Page and a Santa Claus is Coming to Town tease. Melt contained a Fish drum solo. Love You was played for the first time since October 31, 1987 (138 shows) and featured Fish on trombone. Harpua contained "Charge!" and Price of Love teases from Page, multiple Gimme Some Lovin' teases, and a Walk This Way tease from Mike.

DollarBill Very interesting show from 1989. I can't imagine seeing them play at a frat house back in the day. The playing is ok, not great, but there's lots of fun stage banter all night. And if nothing else, you must listen to the story in Harpua. It's just too classic!!! Three stars for the Harpua alone.

Review by thelot

thelot This source leaves a lot to be desired. It’s a rather flat SBD with multiple cassette generations in its lineage. It’s a great performance front to back but leaves you wishing we had a first gen crispy board to sink our teeth into.

Lots of great banter throughout the night. The Harpua is an absolute must hear and gets the MVP this evening. Sloth still has it’s outro attached which started at the Paradise (1/26). Unlike the Paradise version, this one didn’t segue into Possum. Esther and McGrupp were solid. Bowie features a beautiful little ‘Riders on the Storm’ tease. Nice version here.

The YEM->Split Open was great with Fish’s jazzy drum solo leading into the “Steam Dream” section. This was a stronger version of Split Open than the last one played. Although, that version had pitch issues. Another strong Weekapaug. Love you made another appearance after a long hiatus. Definitely check out this Harpua! So good!! lol
