GENERAL INFO:

  • Decent quality show, and another favorite. Elliott seems to be frustrated by his voice. he says something about not talkign all day and it has made his voice sound terrible.
  • Approximate runnign time: 40 minutes
  • This was the going away show for Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, etc.). He was leaving Boston for Los Angeles.
  • "Waterloo Sunset" is a Kinks song written by Ray Davies. Elliott has covered thsi song many many times in his live shows. Each time it is played, it is as good or better than that last one. This particular version, Elliott stops mid-song and then says somethign abotu the volume of the monitor is going up and down. The sound man asks Elliott what is wrong, and after a brief pause, Elliott says "It's nothing really..." the crowd laughs and then Elliott said "it's definatley not an excuse" . Classic Elliott moment.
  • The unknown song contains the lyrics "...you make him sad shooting stars..." It is one of my favorite songs.
  • "St. Ides Heaven" and "Angeles" were attempted but aborted.
