The thing I remember most from this show was wandering the outer concourse with my friend beginning of 2nd set looking for a bathroom when we stumbled into a wicked little spot with small speakers set up in the hall kicking out the BEST sound I ever heard! We came back to twirl and jam with the best of 'em until Drums. Didn't even miss the visual apspect, lol. Never saw that kind of set up there again, or anywhere else, but wow, it sure was killer! Would sure like a copy if anyone has a good show!

My fitst show. A very solid show. Had alot of fun.

this was the first time i noticed they were killing babys during space

This was my first show but it wasnt until a year later same venue spring tour that I punched my ticket and was really on board the bus.

This was my fifth show! After being shut out of the last 3 of 4 attended. I was treated to a first time played with "gentlemen start your engines" which was only played twice. This One is way better than the lame bubblegum version the west coast got. It was mean and dirty - Jerry's solo is gnarly. AND...1 of the only 2 big river > cumberland ever played. I think the msg 9-13-91 was a stronger cumberland. This one slumbers a bit. But any set with big river AND mama tried in it is the shit in my book. But, the bif in playin reprise sucked, but whatever. I bought a cool pigpen shirt that day so i was stoked on the lovelight and bobbys "now wait a minute!!" and the band stops on a dime! bringing it down low. It was awesome. Indoor summer shows were awesome!
