Bradley’s Almanac, a Boston music blog, posted a great overview of The Sinclair show, including audio of the entire show. He nails the anxiety and ticket frenzy that led up to the show: “There was bitchin’, there was beggin’, there was resignation and self-righteousness. The Craigslist “TICKETS WANTED!” posts piled up, along with Facebook event page pleading, with offers of favors, cash, and eternal gratitude.”
See his Flickr album for show photos, including this one taken while Paul sat and sang “Within Your Reach”, a high point of the show for me.
Looks like the band enjoyed a fine day off in Chicago, taking in a Cubs game. Josh Freese posted a photo from the broadcast booth.
And The Replacements posted this shot of Dave Minehan and Ben Perlstein in the stands.
