We are Not Going to Make It

Great time seeing PUSA. It was free, warm and clear outside, they haven’t played here
in a while and they pulled out a couple treats.

Unfortunately, I made it to the show ~ 15 minutes after their official starting time of
2030, and, I think they started playing a little before that. I was able to hear some of
the songs I missed, and, I know for certain I missed ‘Kitty’, ‘Boll Weevil’, and ‘Ladybug’.
I walked in during the middle of ‘Highway Forever’ and didn’t start recording audio until
the song was almost over and decided not to start video until the next song, which ended
up being ‘Back Porch’.

Overall the show was good and the guys seemed to be enjoying themselves very much as did
the crowd, but, they didn’t sing along too much. Audio and video came out nicely, however,
as I was so close to the stacks, the mic on my HG20 distorted with deep and heavy bass hits.

Mr. McKaeg meshes well with the band although he obviously doesn’t have the history that
Dave did, he plays the old songs well and he fits in. I hope these guys stick together and
keep playing.
