Mike’s Song” 11.15.95 II, Tampa, FL

This “Mike’s” is a case study in Fall ’95’s arena rock intensity; a ferocious jam that dissolves into beauty.

Reba” 12.1.96 II, Los Angeles, CA

Most people are familiar with the monstrous “Tweezer” that opened this set at Pauly Pavilion at UCLA. The “Reba” that came later in the set, however, is a hidden gem.

Ghost” 11.15.98 I, Mufreesboro, TN

Delivered as the second song of a mid-week stop in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, this version is another that illustrated the omnipresence of “Ghost” during Fall ’98. Coming in all shapes and sizes, this rendition was anchored in uptempo rock before moving into outright groove, quite the way to get the party started in a bare-bones college gymnasium.

Ramble On > Slave” 8.13.98 II, Vernon Downs, NY

A classic pairing from the end of Vernon Downs’ first set. When Trey hits the “Ramble On” line in the “Slave” peak—chills every time.

    Mad men is good. A little slow sometimes but we’re enjoying catching up here in our house.

    I only made it about a season and a half myself, Robear. I just kinda realized “wait a second, I don’t care a whit about any of these characters,” at which point I knew continuing watching wasn’t going to do much for me. Too soapy for me, I guess…

  3. Elementset Says:

    sorry if it’s been said but that gin from TTFT has a lick resembling the MSGhost

    does anyone else has trouble with Miner’s audio player or is it just my work computer? sometimes its fine but probably 40% of the time it cuts short the songs, then works after page refresh

  5. Slicksasquatch Says:

    I get tunes cut short often. But I am not sure if it’s the iPhone connection or not.

  6. Slicksasquatch Says:

    Sorry, no exact matches were found, but other tickets may still be available.
    Still waiting…
