Review by wokeupthismorning

wokeupthismorning i was 13 years old. already a phan. probably had junta and lawn boy on cd at this point. my buddy (who lived three doors up the street) was going with his dad and asked if i wanted to go. i remember being stoked that i got to see my first show before my older brother, who introduced me to the band, saw them.
i mostly remember lots of crusty old dead heads in the lot beforehand, a couple of whom complimented my jerry t shirt that i had bought at kohl’s.
the show was mind blowing. the music was like nothing i had ever experienced before. i didnt know most of the songs, but absolutely loved it. i remember thinking acoustic army was SO COOL. i was (still am) a huge fan of the narnia books, so i couldnt believe they had a song called prince caspian.
theyre playing a game of chess with the audience??!! crazy.
the vocal jam in yem totally freaked me out. sleeping monkey cracked me up. contact was a highlight. i had to ask my buddy what a day in the life was. did not know it at the time.
i remember this like 65 year old hippie lady noodle dancing in the aisle.
there was a cute college age girl next to me smoking joints.
the light show was incredible.
everything about it was just a smorgasbord for the senses. i was completely and utterly hooked.

listening back now, the antelope stands out as an absolute monster.
good show from an incredible tour.
