PHATTSKIS A sleeper show outweighed by monster fall 98 shows (Salt Lake and Cincy as examples) before and (Hampton and Wooster) after. I attended a couple of years of college in the 80s at MTSU and it was my first visit to Murfreesboro in several years. I was excited to go back there after my long cross country drive from Park City to do the Cincy>Mboro>SC>NC>Hampton run and actually ended up skipping SC and NC b/c of some truck trouble but made Hampton (WHEW!)

My Friend opener was great--loved it having that open that show at a place I used to go to school with--ran into many old phriends there and the last concert I had seen there was REM back in the 80s--felt like an old friend. Don't remember much of the first set after Driver b/c my buddy that rode with me had a really strange ride on his sillycybins. Took me a few songs to talk him down--that really made me miss the good old ROCK MED on the west coast but he chilled out and I got to rocking again during Roggae. La Grange was a grand first set closer.

Second set started strong with Jim>Stash, Mikes but I was growing weary of Simple out of Mikes and Velvet sea was a downer to me (ha! but not a trip ender!) Loving Cup>Weekapaug brought the missing energy back and Rocky Top in my home state of course was completely fun.

Everyshow can't be EPIC but almost any show is GOOD PHUN. This one was just plain GOOD PHUN.
