Before Runaway Jim, Trey referenced Aquarium Rescue Unit and the string of shows that the two bands were, at the time, playing together. Subsequently, Bowie included Yield Not to Temptation (Col. Bruce Hampton & The Aquarium Rescue Unit) teases. Recordings that circulate with this date with a different list are mislabeled copies of November 2, 1989. The Aquarium Rescue Unit was the opening act.

Review by SplitOpenAndMule

SplitOpenAndMule 2 songs in, Trey expresses his gratitude for this New Hampshire area ("We always love to play here, so thanks to everybody") while Mike replaces a string he broke during The Landlady, saying that "you know it's gonna be a hot night" when Mike breaks a string during the first song. I'd say the show is average for era, which does not take away from the fact that it does indeed sound like a hot night. Trey also takes that string-changing opportunity to plug the openers The Aquarium Rescue Unit ("They're the best band I've ever seen"), telling the crowd to get to their upcoming shows together at the Somerville and Capitol Theatres early.
Highlights of this night come in the form of Page's solo in Suzy leading to a great Bowie intro and following jam to end the first set. The Weekapaug plays with timing and almost falls off the rails but manages to stay on track, with Trey soloing some in the DEG style, as well as with a particular scale he's been fond of all year that will eventually form part of It's Ice. Stash is also a little extra hotter than usual, as is Llama, and it's nice to hear Divided Sky at the end of a show rather than it's usual 1st quarter placement. Solid 3-3.5 star show.
