    17 going on 18, back in 1991. Didn’t know who the openers were but was blown away by the lead guitarist and thought it was cool (and dangerous) when the lead singer climbed the gear and made his way around the balcony railing. For years I thought the climbing happened during EF because of the music video, lol.

    The encore was the best.  everyone left from the pit at Lawlor Events and they returned to:

    1. Go
      • Black
        • Sonic Reducer
          • Ain't Nothing To Do
            • Indifference
            I don't do a lot of social media or anything.  This band has meant more to me and I am sure all of you, it took me 73 shows to so the one song I really wanted, being Oceans.  And COVID-19 has delayed shows 74-77.  I am very fortunate and appreciate all that I have and what this band has done for me. 
            Cant' be held down!
