One of the rare times you hear Donna Jean talk onstage.

Moved down to the floor from the rafters for the 2nd set. This was a solid show, but the night before was the one to catch!

Went back up to school a few days later in Utica for the 1/14 show, with blizzard like conditions.

I can't think of any other time she talked. Funny she was fired just a few weeks later.
I had this on yesterday, and when they brought up Mickey's birthday, I thought I had on the wrong show as I knew his birthday was in September.
