everyone crashed through the rear fence, and I joined the flow.I miracled some one about 5 min. later,wish I still had that stub.1st time I heard DARK STAR,everything I imagined. Damn I miss those boys!! 9/12/00

It was a good show except for the jerks that crashed the gates down. As a result the dead never returned to starlake. Once again the gate crashers spoiled it for all of us.

The BEST so many roads... i was front row jerry side both shows.. dear god, what an experience!...

Only GDTRFB played in 199. Jack Straw was amazing. I was on pure blotter acid on this one.

In desperate need if anyone has this to trade.

This was my first dead show out of 22. I was 16yo and lived like 5 minutes from the venue. I had a fistful of tickets (very in demand those 2 nights)from a buddy who worked there and made trades for everything my heart desired (what a summer that turned out to be) "DARK-STAR-LAKE!"

average show, the highlight was me and my buddy kicking the teeth out (for real) of some head for ripping us off on some doses (lots of them) If you know a hippy they called "song-bird" with false teeth, ask him about the dude from Pittsburgh who beat him senseless.

not sure how kicking someones teeth out could be a highlight of anything, and a guy selling large quantities of bunk LSD isnt a head. sounds like your buddy is borderline as well. just my .02.

The fact that the highlight of some fuckin assholes show was a guy getting his teeth kicked in, is the proof that it was all over long before, and also the reason I have felt hatred. I hope you die a painful death mother fucker

Pittsburgh is such a shit hole, why they would even play this size venue after the disaster that was the 89 sping tour @ the Igloo is beyond me.POS town.

Woulda beat that hippies ass too. Cool setlist even if Pitt wasn't best city. Gate crashes shoulda had their ass beat too.

Wow so much negativity, lets change it up. My friend & I had been touring this summer after HS, we saw the Starlake shows under some psycobs w lots of enjoyment from the venue - after seeing the boys only at large stadium venues for years this was a nice treat to have a smaller venue. Remember how the heads literally took over this small town for 2 days? Was an experience unlike any other from the east coast 90's era GD. Enjoyed the show, Dark Star! Between sets the PA played "No Room" cd by The Samples, what a treat. After the show (dont remember whicch night) fireworks display & Wizard of Oz soundtrack playing over the PA - what a run of shows!

Pittsburgh was always a shitty place for shows because of the assholes there. The shows were good, but the atmosphere sucked. In 1987, the Neville Brothers showed up for an awesome second set, but idiots in the parking lot were jumping on cars -- and hence, getting their asses kicked. Probably a bunch of asshole Squealers fans.

This show was great, especially the post drums. Gotta love the GDTRFB into Around & Around. Fast paced rocking vibes that will have you shakin your bones till the very end. The knocking encore just brought this one home in a somber way though, really an emotional rollercoaster of a show. Look at the set list if you don't believe me.

Oh, and sorry, but the idea that you shouldn't beat someone nearly to death for ripping you off is A big reason why the scene died. if you're not willing to defend something so beautiful from ass holes who wanna rape it for their own benefit, then you deserve to be concurred and destroyed, which is exactly what happened to the scene.

The guy who kicked the shit out of song-bird did the right thing. Guaranteed that dude never sold bunk hits ever again. probably never ate solid food again either, but that's Karma. Karma is not a nice force to those who deserve her wrath, she is a vengeful and vicious beast that will tear you apart. Anyone who sells bunk anything should have that happen to them. It's just the way of the world, and those who would say that it shouldn't be are usually the next targets. Always love when bad things happen to people who tell others how to react to bad situations. Deservedly puts them in their place. Everyone who was a part of the scene had a hand in it's down fall. The lack of action against people who took advantage of Real Heads is a major reason the a-holes took over. "Evil Prevails when the good do nothing" And sitting and complaining accomplishes nothing.

Listening to the show on Sirius now with a set of BOSE headphones on. Some amazing stereo panning going on during space. Must have sent chills up spines at the show.

Worse comments of any show I have ever read about. fights are a given, don't need to hear about the sausage being made, I guess. The tales about how a guy got a ticket from his brother and they fought a snowy highway are more edifying than Snowbird getting his head kicked in.
