Xpanding_Man This is a (typically) solid show from 1991, when the band was really starting to outgrow venues like this, even in remote areas like Chapel Hill. I was a freshman at Duke (don't hate me, I didn't like it either) at the time, and have often wondered, "what if"? What if I had somehow made it to this show, as we used to go to Franklin street to meet NC girls and try to get served. What if I had discovered this band the way they were intended to be discovered, in person, listening to the best musicians in the country tear it up in a small club? Oh well...my first show would have to wait a couple years for the Cameo in miami beach. I would like to think I would have been smitten and immediately started collecting tapes etc., but I probably wasn't ready. Listening back to this show now, it's hard to believe that they brought this level of quality to the state nearly every night.

I'm sure there were a lot of people there just to do something on a Thursday, and I bet most had no idea the band would eventually sell out places like MSG. Oh well...
