See my post under "Phil & Jones Beach". I was also at the SPAC & Hartford shows. I found SPAC to be much more mellow; good, but mellow & laid back. Hartford on the other hand blew me out of the water - both bands. I am very impressed w/ GRAB and can't wait to see Thursday's show at Great Woods (aka Tweeter Center - and while I'm on this topic, I refuse to call these venues that have renamed themselves for corporate sponsorship by the "new name". I hate that shit, I can't stand it. When they do that, it seems like I lose touch w/ the venue and you lose that sense of nostalgia. Imagine if they renamed Fenway Park the "Fleet Bank Ballpark" or if they renamed Soldier Field the "Insert-your-dot-com-business-here Presents Soldier Field" It loses all that's good with it. So, in my mind, Great Woods will always be Great Woods! Down with corporate spons-"whore"-ship!)
