What a night!

Besides the incredible breakouts, what I remember most about the show was after the lights came on at the end, everyone just exploded in a thunderous applause. The energy in the colisseum was palpable. This night was truly a magical experience.

Day II

So the first night was just a warm up really. It was my 1st Help->Slip->Franklin's. But if you told me that I would have a Dark, Death Dont Have No Mercy, Attics of My Life, & Help->Slip->Franklin's I would have checked your pulse.

The lot was buzzing after the first show, except for me. I had the rug pulled out from under my feet the night before, when I discovered my ex was with my good friend. I didn't sleep at all after making the discovery. She was kind enough to hook me with tickets, but my ticket was painful to look at. I tried to enjoy the lot, good friends & kind nugz. My heart just wasn't in it.

It was nearing show time when I saw her with her new boyfriend. It killed me. I left the lot and miracled my ticket. I didn't think twice about it, I just gave it to a person in a hotel parking lot. I was basically inconsiulable.

I meet a friend, we started smokin' & I told him my sob story. When I got to the point where I miracled my ticket, his jaw dropped. He told straight up that I totally lost my mind. We parted, & I headed back into the lot. I made some new friends, started drinking some wine with them. When I told them I miracles my ticket, they too looked at me with horror. Everyone was talking about the Dark Star that was going to happen. It was the 'buzz'.

It was almost show time, the new friends I had met were packing up to head in. There was an arguement for a minute or two, then this guy came to me as I was leaving. He told me he didn't want to do this, but I seemed like a nice person. In his hand was a ticket. He gave it to me!! I don't know his name, hell, I can't even remember what he looks like. I think he wanted to sell it but his girlfriend wanted him to give it to me. That's what I think the arguement was over.

About an hour & a half later, my ears heard the first notes of a song I never thought I would have heard. It was like being on a mountain, exposed, at night. It was the the first sight of light on the horizon. My first Dark Star...

After that second set, I was back on my feet and ready for the rest of the tour. Ce Ya Jenifer.

Soundcheck

I recall soundcheck included a couple of run throughs of A Little Light and Attics.

This was my favorite show of the 110 I attended, supplanting the beautiful 11-1-85. I didn't think they still had it in them, but this show was awe-inspiring.

Had just attended my 1st

Had just attended my 1st shows early that spring in ATL. And an old high-school friend, not even a fan, necessarily, calls me up and says, "Hey man, I think I might go check out this Warlocks show in Hampton."
There was no way I could make it to that show... I ran into that friend in Charlotte soon thereafter (knowing by then about the Dark Star) and said, "describe your show for me, bro." He says, "Power...Ineffable, mind-fucking power..."
