Phil seemed to play Tom

Phil seemed to play Tom Thumb's Blues in D.C. almost every time they came to town. That and Tennessee Jed (I think they played that the next night). Great show.

Hornsby Rocked

DKNJ: This show was great, it was loosely filled with tons of room just 10 rows from the stage. Jerry was dancing his ass off during "Man Smart". Bruce kicked an awesome keys solo on that one. "this is my last song for you bitch" Brent during Far From Me.

Bruce and Brent Jammin together

There is a clip on Backstage Pass that shows them both on the keys next to each other jamming during Man Smart. I remember how totally awesome it was. They were bring the House of Gibbs to its knees.

This was a really fun show. Sound didnt reallly kick in until .5step, like thats new, but .5step was pretty rockin.
The whole show was as I recall.

My friend Scott HATED the slow encores so we left. He always thought that the show should end on the upside.

My 1st show

This was my 1st and I was pretty much on my own as my friend was in-capacitated and slumped over in his seat. I thought to be a great show. The kool-aide was kickin' and walking beneath an underpass towards the stadium was the freakiest place I have ever been. Peter Pan(who may have been Bob) stopped by my seat at halftime and puffed with me. The 2nd set was smokin' I love Estimated Eyes so much! Like so many, I wanted to join the rest of the tour, but I was broke and young and thought better of it. Didn't join back up until Philly in the fall.

Coolest Camping Scene

The camping scene in the RFK parking lot was totally awesome and was the beginning of the end of big east coast parking/camp scenes. I remember the military had setup a 48hr open shower area to the side with about 10 or so constantly running showers over the 2 days. You could stroll over at any time, day or night and get a warm shower with naked people and couples all having a great time. Wow - what a fantastic mid-summer nite's dream that was.

lol, @ the underpass...I

lol, @ the underpass...I started Moo-ing, feeling like a bunch of cattle. Shortly after, everyone was... hilarious.

Was broke too....resorted to selling bottles OJ I invested my last 20 bucks in. Tripled my money!!! Not enough to go on, but enough to get me home in relative comfort.
