Set: How Far Away – Margaritaville – Margarita – Wishing Well Blues – Key West Tapwater – The Shivering Sand – Your Mama’s A Ho – Kid Icarus

Opening for other bands is never fun. It was a bad idea to play this one, but we were young and stupid, and ended up being perpetually harassed by some dickhead who stole a setlist. I recall “Margarita” and “Your Mama’s A Ho” receiving cheers from the balcony, but other than that no one cared at all. On the other hand, I can’t remember who we actually opened for. Some jam band or punk band or whatever was popular at the time. Someone else put it best, though: “Opening for other bands is just the rankest sort of masochism.” -Peter Buck of R.E.M.
