My first MGB show
Center Stage is such an intimate venue to see one your favorite bass players. I was right up front, close enough that the band was laughing at some silly stickers on our faces. I didn't really know what to expect from the band. It's certainly not Phish, and that's a good thing for Mike. It was interesting to see him leading the way, smiling and even getting a little goofy. Col. Bruce Hampton came out for "Fixin' to Die" in the first set. What a character. MGB versions of "Mound" and "Cities" were pretty tight. Some might say better than the Phish versions. You be the judge.

Mike introduced "The Void" as a "song about the feeling the first person that ever walked on the moon had when taking that... step." Atlanta-fixture Col. Bruce Hampton provided vocals for "Fixin' to Die."
