This was the first time I "really" traveled for an UM show. All of my previous shows were less than a 90 drive away. For this one, me and 3 kids from Providence (who were Noodles' roommates) drove from PC to Burlington. My plan was to catch 9/29 and 9/30, then go back to school. Then hit up the bus to New Haven and stay with my buddy at Conn College and do 10/4. Go back to school, then catch the bus again and stay with my buddy at WPI and do 10/6. Luckily everything fell into place and worked.
What can I say about this show that hasn't already been said. This is definitely one of my top 5 seen shows out of 69, and maybe even number 1. (It's so hard to pick a favorite.)
It was something about the monster jams, and it was really one of the first shows, where there were a ton of members from the OG bort all chilling together. I remember we had a hotel room at the Holiday Inn and there were probably 15 or 20 of us from the bort.
This show is all about the Dump City, Tribute, TINKLES, PIG, Porch, and Senor Mouse. All of these songs are top 10 versions of all time, and I would know considering I've listened to countless shows.
After the show I remember we all went back to one hotel room, and we looked at each other being like "Holy Fuck was that show good." I was in the room with people like Noodles, DanRad, Grover, and pick, guys who had seen tons of shows up to that point. And we all agreed that it was one of the greatest shows we had seen from UM.
