Man, when the dead started the second set off with Hey Pocky Way, I knew we were in for a hell of a set. Watchtower was awesome. Wanted a lovelight so badly but did not get one. I got one at my next show, 3-21-94, so it was all good.
By the way, Phish will be playing here in march.

this is a great tight show and it exemplifies the best of the '89 spring run. the first set is marked by a juicy sugaree and a crisp peggy-o. bob forgets the words to me and my uncle (cant imagine why, he's sung it 500 times by then lol) and he lets the crowd sing a big chunk until it seems that we too dont know the words and he jumps back in. LOTS of fun. big river is brents time to shine yeehaa. loser is sick and twisted. the set closes with a terrific victim and a very mellow standing on the jerry wanted to calm us down and build up some energy for the second set.

and we needed it! brent just absolutely ROCKS on hey pocky way. brent fans MUST listen to this version! the truckin is smokin and the transition into terrapin sets us all on fire again. even though the take you home watchtower dew is so predictable they dont fail to excite. and this is the first time, to my knowledge that brent sang some lyrics on good lovin.

brent was so hot this year and into 1990. he clearly went out on top of his game (well professionally that is) the spring 1989 shows started his rise. get as much of him as you can.

too much of everything is just enough:))

My friend Scott and I were in the front row between Jerry and Brent. The whole first set we were "hassling" Brent to sing something - in a good natured way. We were calling out "Hey Pocky Way" a lot. We even got a "We Want Brent" chant going at one point. Jerry even chimed in and giving him some mudges to play something. He then was giving Brent these looks like "well, they're not going to shut up until you sing" kind of thing. The front row there was super close to the stage and very low, so we were basically just having to "talk" to them rather than yelling. When they came out with the most rockin' Pocky for the second set, I nearly sh*t myself. Fantastic show and one of my favorite memories of seeing shows.
