* – Power Outage

Notes: Travelin’ Light Tour; Leftover Salmon, G. Love & Special Sauce, and Guster opened; the show was held in a fairly new minor league baseball park (Charleston Riverdogs); the band was set up in center field playing inward facing home plate; the rain let up just prior to the band’s performance, but windy conditions persisted throughout; thanks to Bobby Moore for the patch and the loan of his masters for transfer

Show Notes:
This was an intense experience. You hiked from the parking area into the woods and to the mouth of a huge Copper mine. There were people out in the woods everywhere. They laid sawdust inside the mine to help with footing, and the electricity was provided by generators. To say that the natives were restless for the show is a huge understatement. They formed a human chain to keep people outside until the band was ready, but that fell apart when someone got pepper-sprayed. It was chaos after that, which did not help the taping process, but certainly added to the experience. During set-break, you could explore very deep inside the core of the mineshaft, which was brilliantly lit with all of the headlamps and lighters. After the show, all lights were blue, as the Police had roadblocks at all exits. Don’t say that JB didn’t warn you;)

This is not a great recording, but it is listenable and worth seeding just for the historical significance of the Cave show. Enjoy!
