I could really just write "get this, get this now" and nothing more. This tape is that good!

The band starts off by bashing out a very punk rock instrumental of Facet Squared. Then it's onwards with a glorious flow of rockers and, with the great mix provided, you can just drown yourself in early, heavy Fugazi.

The mix is wide, clear, huge and warm. Every instrument has power and the vocals cut clearly through. And the drums...oh boy, you could really just concentrate on the details of Brendan's playing and admire his crazy chops. The drum set is panned beautifully in the stereo field and every element has it's space.

It's hard to even pinpoint highlights since the whole set here basically just gels so well together. There's a sweet showcase of yet to be released Last Chance For A Slow Dance that merges into a strong Promises. And I gotta mention Suggestion. The crowd sings along, the groove is perfect...and the performance is influenced by a certain show opener, which brings a whole another aspect to the performance. A soulful Give Me The Cure is another one of many highlights.

Turnover unfortunately has the intro cut probably due to a cassette flip.

What initially caught my eye about this show was the low number of interludes. And my hunch was right - there are no fights and almost zero time wasters. It's just a big Fugazi party all night long! There are many moments where you can hear the crowd sing along and it's just glorious.

The evening draws to a close with explosive encores, Repeater being the insane highlight. I can only imagine the amount of fun everyone was having. The cassette runs out and Waiting Room cuts off in the end which is a pity.

Like I said earlier...get this. Get this now.

I was one of the people hypnotized at this show and called up on-stage (and yes, it was real). The NOU guys were asking me about it afterwards. What an incredible feeling, surpassed only by the energy of the show itself. Such a shame the earlier 7th St Entry show wasn't recorded -- what an eye-opener that was.
