Great hometown show

I think I went with my buddy Judd and we were in something like the 14th row... I have always been a bigger fan of second sets but this was a great first set!

Tons of Steel

Brents voice was roached on this and Phil picked up the slack singing it which seemed to give it more feeling, always loved this show.

Great finale

These three nights were magical. This was the first time I was able to see the band in Chicago. The parking lot, perfect size venue, and the energy of the crowd were amazing.

Just listening to this show on Sirius and almost unable to work due to flashbacks, lol.

This series of shows have always been great in my mind.

my first show

this being my first show the only member i heard of was garcia,so i had no idea their was a guy named Brent in the band( my name as well) so i was a little shocked to see a sticker reading TONS OF BRENT after the guy explained what it ment he gave me one and told me if they play that song i'll have to come back,so figured he had memerized the setlist because they play the same set every night like all other bands i've seen... sure .... well they played tons of steel and i was hooked,great music,great people.(did he say "spend doin time for someother fucker crime"cool).terapin was something else,it is hard to discribe what i felt there that night when one note or song was better than the last you need to go back.thanks Brent
