Review by stgsince88

stgsince88 This was my 4th show. I had seen my first at this same location a year and a month earlier. Many of the same songs which is not surprising as they didn't have that many songs then. I really have no opinion on the songs because I loved them all then. I had the non-descript black junta tape and had listened to it many times by now. I also had a few bootlegs as they were called even though taping was allowed. For me at this time it was about the change in scene. A year after the 88 show this band had definitely grown in Vermont.

In Johnson for this show there was a large party held on railroad street (thanks Todd) It was clear many people from UVM and other colleges were in town. The excitement was palpable. The 88 show had a few hundred. There were already a few thousand in Johnson who were not getting in. The band played. They were amazing, and it is still so funny to me that I recognize the screams of people, i literally knew who was screaming. During the set break the band went to Arthurs hall, closest to the base lodge and did some ummm "stuff". You hear this when Trey calls them out, "you know who you are, we know who you are." I think the 2nd set shows that whatever they did do helped :) It's a lot more fire. Overall an amazing experience looking back 34 + yrs ago. Im still here and had this same experience at SPAC for the flood benefit as I had great seats but not as close as I had that night watching pages hammond leslie spin from 10 ft away
