and ends with a string of covers.

Recording: Audience


  1. Thanks for posting this. This was the first time I saw the 'Mats and I have very vivid memories of it. Now you have posted all six shows that I saw -- great work!

  2. I was there, and while the description is completely accurate, it fails to convey just how glorious it was!

  3. I was also at this show and remember it being an amazing experience. It was the only time I ever saw The Replacements play. I just want to add that the opening band was The Neats from Boston, MA, who were pretty great in their own right.
