Excellent atmosphere! Halloween, Radio City, Talk about Freaks! Acoustic sets on that tour were nice and Frankin & Davis being irritating between setsof this show. It was great fun when the whole place roared for Davis to jump off the balcony because he said he drank some Koolade back stage.

Cassidy through Ripple was sweet!

Bought dead set and the drums>space>fire started it all for me.

This show was somethin else, amazingly intense pulsating rythms throughout the final set, the franklin's was a great surprise, but not as big as the monster fire out of Space. Correct me if i'm wrong Perrin, but i believe this was the first stand alone fire since Egypt. Stand alone meaning no Scarlet before hand. Either way, the third set really does a number on your brain, definitely worth a listen or two.

A smoking Good Lovin' to end the second set followed by a solid Uncle Johns Band encore. Nice way to end a superb show.
