Halloween Saturday in Austin, which made for an amusing cast of characters.  Big outdoor crowd, at least as many, if not more than St Pete.  By end of the night, the front was jam packed maybe even tighter than at Jannus, which kept us warm on an unusually chilly October night.

A very solid, crowd-pleasing show for an enthusiastic crowd, although a bit short.  For whatever reason, the set clocked in at no more than 80 minutes, shorter than the two previous co-bill nights.  Even with minimal storytelling, only 12 songs got fitted in.   Setlist was comprised of the usual suspects, with nothing surprising or unusual, except perhaps that Sweetest Thing was left out for the second time in Texas.  Hoping for songs like Whitehouse, Air, Write a Letter, 99 Shades of Crazy, Jookhouse, Missippi, and even rarer gems to get a play or two in the UK next week. 

The real WOW moments for this night came from Galactic's set.  They absolutely worked the crowd into a frenzy.  Good time to mention how much fun it's been to see Corey Glover sing Cult of Personality.  Got to see Living Colour a couple times opening for the Stones' Steel Wheels stadium tour way back in '89.  For this show, he was up on the speaker banks, to the roaring approval of the Halloweeners.  Repeated that "act of danger" for the encore, a holiday-appropriate cover of Sympathy for the Devil.  Some of the guys got the same guest spots as the two previous nights (I still can't get over the cover of ELO's Showdown, a perfect fit for JJ's vocal range), with Dennis and Art wowing everybody there with their seemingly extra-stretched-out solos.

I saw LC open for the stones on the "steel wheels" tour.  The singer was at the front of the stage whipping his hair around in circles, lost his balance, and fell off the stage which was several feet high.

I was at that Hoosier Dome show.  12/8/89 give a day or two.  Were you the dude holding up a Harp & Drums sign?
