50. SPIN DOCTORS, 6/12/93

Location: Lakewood Amphitheatre, Atlanta, GA
Support act(s): Soul Asylum, Screaming Trees
In the company of: Chris

This was our very first concert after moving to Atlanta (actually, about three weeks after our arrival). I had just been employed by Catspaw Productions, a small audio production company. The receptionist had two extra tickets to the show, and I said, “Sure!”

It seemed like driving across the state just to get to Lakewood (now renamed Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre). Today, though, it’s just a short jaunt. The show was good, with solid support acts. Since then, all three bands have mostly been forgotten, but Soul Asylum had the most critical success.
