Monster wasn’t my favorite R.E.M. album, but they certainly made an effort to play cuts of that and everything else.
Washington Post review
Grant Lee Buffalo:
Ozzy was great, but I have kicked myself for managing to go to the only tour after Zakk Wylde became his guitarist that Zakk didn’t go on (we got Joe Holmes, and I tell you the crowd was saying “who?” too).
WHFS has having such a big year, they tried to start a fall festival. Unfortunately, this was the only one. The show was a big bummer for me because Matthew Sweet opened, and we got to the show as he was playing his lost song. Eric had agreed to drive but was running incredibly late, even for him.
Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ was great as usual, but for the longest time, I would put Moonpools & Caterpillars as my least favorite opening band ever.
