We first met Chris on one of Attendance Bias’ earliest episodes, where we spoke about 11/28/97 at the Worcester Centrum. If anyone wants to hear more about Chris’ background as a fan or as an artist, please feel free to go back and listen to that episode.
This show was played toward the beginning of the 1999 December tour, which was fourteen shows total. The whole tour built up to Big Cypress, and 14 shows in something like 19 days helps explain how and why they were so prepared for the festival. This was show number 6 of the tour.
Sand was played as the 2nd set opener of this show, which also featured a 14-minute Ya Mar and several other notable jams. This is only the 8th time Sand was played.
