starting my 20th anni listen thru of summer 98 today.  Though it takes me about 4 days to finish a show so it'll prob last me the rest of summer, lol.

starting the 1st set today i REALLY liked the 1st NA moma. Extremely tight and sublimely funky version.

Right on Slim, I'm right there w/ you.  The Portland Moma is indeed a good one.  This version of Brian and Robert has caught my ear over the years as well.

My pet theory is that Live Nation made them an offer they couldnít refuse to do three nights to try and help keep the venue afloat. 

Sasquatch used to sell out a few years back when they were getting better line ups but now thatís dunzo.

I think without the big fest and Phish and DMB only playing every 2-3 years the future of the venue is in doubt. Three days of Phish and DMB this summer should at least help 2018 get into the black.

It's an interesting move doing 3 nights out there.  Do you all think it will help them draw more people?  The amount of extras on the internet is nuts, but I guess the gorge is always like that.  Does anyone sell out the gorge??

First- I loved the movie and think itís a fantastic step for the franchise.

That said, this movie is far from perfect.

My issues with the movie-

Leia into space and then coming back
Yoda all of a sudden being like nah, fuck it, Luke. Sheís good. Those Jedi texts are Boring as fuck anyway.
Luke, in general. Winking at C3PO, dusting his shoulder off, etc.
Complete and total dismissal of Ackbar. ďOh by the way, that guy diedĒ.
Plot line of letís just wait until they run out of gas is pretty weak, IMO
Snoke....zero character development and killed way too easily. He clearly has a lot of respect for the history of the dark side(or maybe just Vader?) and is pretty powerful. Cool side note: his ring is made From obsidian cut from below Vaderís temple.

Just watched the movie for the third time, first outside of the theaters. Itís amazing how much the movie has grown on me. The initial shock of some of things mentioned above has waned and I still feel this movie is great. Iím even more excited for the next movie.

Still need to see Solo.

7-15-98. Portland.

Can't believe its been 20 years since my summer 98 trip began.
I drove out from VA mostly with the intention of moving to Portland and with no plans of hopping on tour, but plans changed, and the next month+ i would catch alot of phish and further shows all the way back across the country to Va, up to Maine for the final shows and finally sutmbling out to CO by late August.

I always look back at this show as a big soundcheck for the tour.
Laid back west coast crowd, new songs- many 1st time played in the US,  the California jam a sign of of covers to come for the rest of tour (-did Trey think they were in CA?)... and really its was not until the nice HEavy Metal Wilson encore that they seemed to finally get goin. Perfect warm up for the Gorge double dip to follow.

So I caught the War on Drugs with Alvvays opening on Wednesday night in Halifax.
Alvvays were a major meh but I may have been in the wrong frame of mind for their set after popping a bunch of boomers. They just seemed to be going through the motions, no energy whatsoever.
The War on Drugs came on just as it was getting dark with a thick fog overhead, which totally added to the light show. They absolutely killed it. Granduciel was incredible and really blew me away. Highlight of the night was the Neil tribute to close the show. No encore was a bit of a bummer but I think there was a strict curfew since it was outside and in the heart of downtown Halifax.

Setlist:
Brothers
Pain
An Ocean in Between the Waves
Strangest Thing
Arms Like Boulders
Burning
Eyes to the Wind
Red Eyes
Lost in the Dream
Holding On
Under the Pressure
Like a Hurricane
