And I got on...

This show is officially when I got on the bus. An amazing night. Hard to argue with the 89 Fall tour. Personal favorites are: Loser, Bertha, We Can Run, and the post drumz is huge.

All I have to say about this

All I have to say about this show is: Fatty Circle, about 200 heads, upper section of coliseum on Jer's side. Unbelievable. During set break, the security just stood staring at us wide-eyed and mouths agape. Literally a 200-head-large fatty circle. It was a thing of beauty.

karmic crystal

this was the only show in my 50+ dead shows where i could not sell a ticket. i had an upper level mail order tix and got a lower level thru ticketmaster (the tckmstr date was postponed 1wk b/c of hurricane hugo) it seemed EVERYONE had extras. after haggling/"fighting" w/ a head who wanted the tix for $5 (she needed gas money to get home- i wasn't sprouting wings and flying) i gave the extra to a couple parked near me selling crystals. they gave me a crystal as thanks- it's been in my car(s) since and i haven't got a ticket!
weird lot scene: bought a bunch of stale/fake acid from a few people, seeing a head pull tubes from a three foot graffix in her car-seeing same head look surprised when the was a knock on her window..., the heads from maine who had a giant metal trailer to collect the empty cans for the nickel- BRILLANT!, the drumming circle on both the upper and lower concourses between sets

the show? the sound in the lower section was much better than the previous nite's. from looking at the set list, i think i should have been blown away, but i don't remember that feeling after the show-just that it was better than the previous nite.

finally, sitting under the big peach in gaffney,sc watching a meteor shower b4 finishing the ride back to g'ville.

Breakdown Blues

We loaded up Dom's bus & headed to charlotte from philly. Just outside Baltimore the bus brokedown. Jon & I decided that we would go on to charlotte, & meet up with everyone in Miami. We busted our ass hitchhiking to charlotte, was not easy to hitch a ride off 95. Thank god for truckers!

If we knew the shows were gonna be weak, we wouldn't have made the effort. We did have some fun, made some good new friends.

Feel for you PHINETUNE. I

Feel for you PHINETUNE. I had a couple sheets I left in the bus, my friend took a sheet minus a few doses, ran into a "friend" he knew from a long time ago who promptly cuffed him and took him to the same SOUND PROOF ROOM!

Only show I ever got to see,

Only show I ever got to see, but I was SO ready to go on tour. Ah, the feeling in the air, the overall Electricity of the whole scene... Was too paranoid about "Hippie Cops" to burn anything in the lot, so ended up eating about half a 1/4 bag :D but then my pal had opium during Rhythm Devils & Space... ah, Memories... ;)
