It being February 26, Deadstein took the opportunity to "play homage" to the great Swing Auditorium show from this very evening 37 years ago. It was a great show that both premiered and opened with a Terrapin Station as well as premiering Estimated Prophet. Also featuring a great Minglewood, Playing Wheel Playing first set closer and a second set filled with Help Slip Franklins, Music, Eyes, Dancing and so much more, this Swing Auditorium show was a 100% pure Angus beef.

Larry Brent, the day after his birthday joined us for the night bringing his newly setup blond Strat and a new 1997 Strat he recent acquired. Other guests included LeeJ for a few seconds as he is requesting Deadstein play his wedding later on this summer.
