Review by soundboy1

soundboy1 I just have to say this day was one of the most disappointing of my entire life. I had caught a ride home after UVA to get my life together so I could get into this show. I rode up with a crew of I guess what people call wooks and in the 2 days it took us to drive home we did some of the craziest shit of my life. I almost got left behind in a tiny little town in West Virginia. Some local dude was like "I think your friends are leaving without you dude" We get to Pittsburgh to this girl's house and her mom starts bugging out about her being on tour and pulls some wire off her carburetor and says "you aren't going anywhere... The rest of you get the fuck off of my property or I"m calling the cops!!!" We had like 6 people in her car and another 5 in a Jeep Wrangler. We all had to pile into the Jeep which was a trip and go to a local park. One of the guys we were with knew cars and said he could fix it if we go to an auto parts store and get the wire. So we do that sneak into the girls garage while the mom is distracted and steal the girls car back and take off... Then we go to my house in upstate NY with no gas and no money and had to siphon gas and empty gas hoses at every gas station we could find. An 8 hour trip took like 18 hours...

So anyway day of the show we get there early. We had been traveling with this 16 year old kid JR who had a funny story. He was a metal head punk rocker who went to a Dead show on the West Coast and fell asleep in a school bus. He then woke up at the next Dead show and just kind of fell into the scene. He hated the Dead and Phish though and just liked to party. We get to Glens Falls and he tells us he's moving to Glens Falls to be the roadie for this metal band he had met walking around the town...
I am there early trying to get a ticket using all my connections and having no luck. I finally get a lead on a ticket around 6 at night. The dude's like hey get me a 10 strip of the clean stuff and I will get you a ticket. The tour was kinda dry of the super clean stuff but I found some, find the guy and he's like you know what I'm good I"m gonna do some blow... I was so fucking pissed off. I spent the entire show trying to sneak in at one point I was on the roof. No fucking luck.

Meanwhile it's like 40 degrees and raining. I caught a terrible cold and dropped off tour. I had a ride all the way out west and back again and I blew it off because I was so disappointed about missing the White Album I went into a depression for months. It was a really terrible day for me...
