My 3rd show =-)

What can I say, I guess you had to be there. This is the show where I understood. I was on the bus for the duration.

Spot-on opener for tour-ending run

Opening night sharp; much better than last year's tour-opening stint in Atlanta. No signs of road fatigue; in fact, set one popped along from the git-go, with a rousing "Grey - Walkin' - Light" trio that lit up the crowd. The set closers, "Victim - Lay Me Down - Music Never Stopped," featured variety of pace and feeling, and never lagged in intensity. No surprises in the second set; just consistent quality playing. Strong encore, which boded well for the remaining shows in the run.

Holy Brent, Batman

Brent is on fire during this show. In addition to Brent, everyone shines tonight- but Brent really forces everyone to bring it on. This is one of the few 1990 Mydland shows without a big jam before drumz, but post drumz more than makes up for that fact. Get your ears on this show!

Sloof Lirpa April Fools

My buddy and I went to Tampa/Clearwater for a few days before heading up to these 3 shows. When we arrived, we saw a minor vending scene in front of the CNN center and parked in a parking ramp across the street. We had a few hours before showtime so decided to check it out only to arrive as the local police were shutting everybody down but not before buying a couple cool shirts.
Inside the show our seats were side stage up a few rows looking right over Brent. Perfect show from start to finish.

excellent show

Glad I was at this show - what a great one! A strong Candyman.
To Lay Me Down is beautiful, and the Music Never Stopped jam cooks! The Ship of Fools is also a very strong version, and a fitting song choice since this show was on April 1st. Additionally, it's worth pointing out that three songs from this show were selected for inclusion on the live album "Without a Net" (China Cat>Rider and Dear Mr. Fantasy). Wow, it's cool to think back on how awesome spring tour 1990 sounded.

Never heard a better Stella Blue since then.
I was hooked.

first show

4/1/90 was my very first show. I drove from Nashville to Atlanta by myself and drove back after the show (probably not the best idea right?).

What a night! Ended up seeing them on April Fool's Day two more times - the last being in Memphis on 4/1/95 and my very last show on 4/2/95.

I got on board late but glad I didn't miss the train.

what memories

the best part of this show for me, i suppose (although the entire experience was awesome), was when i looked down at my ticket stub during set break and noticed that i had a floor ticket, which i hadn't realized during the 1st set since i was stoked to simply be hangin w my friends on phil's side but up from the floor.

anyhow, they were kind enough to understand that i had to boogie on down near the taper's section for the second set, which of course ended up having three songs that were included on Without a Net. of course, we had no idea at the time that whoever selected those tracks for the album would end up doing so. definitely a groovy experience just to be there nonetheless; and the only time i personally witnessed brent doing hey jude and mr fantasy (of course, the hey jude a bit earlier at Copps Coliseum in Ontario was a far richer and fuller version)

Drum circle

Anyone remember the unreal drum jam outside after the show? Was the whole street vibrating or was that just me....
