In a fit of musical bipolarism, I saw Phish in Charlotte last night and am heading to Carrboro at the moment for Merge's 25th anniversary party. Neutral Milk Hotel, Caribou, Bob Mould, Teenage Fanclub, Mikal Cronin, Ex Hex and the Love Language.

I'd still go, but I wish I could take yinz back to 1988...
I'd bang my head like no other as a 5 year to blackened in 1988.
The Seattle show from live **** is their best live performance ever imo.
Detroit 1999 was amazing but I think Mexico City beats the Seattle show.
Not that I don't like the black album and beyond Metallica, but the setlist at the Seattle show in 89 is perfect. No Sandman to worry about playing to appease the masses, and Metallica arguable at their live musical peak. Everyone is tight(even Lars), James's voice isn't blown out yet, and the energy is just out of this world. I miss the tone of the guitars back then too, and how lars drums were tuned. It's musical perfection to me haha.
