The Pavillion , Feb.17

A great show in the comfy concrete confines of The Pavillion on the Commons ( sounds classy ) . Openers Yellow Jacket Avenger and Two Hours Traffic primed the house nicely . It was also the debut full-show of new Emergency bass player and latest in a distinguished line of low men , Chris Pennell . It sounds like we're in good hands .
Finally, after a hot and blistering set , the rock n roll fans could stand it no longer and took to the stage during Come on Teacher . Then they destroyed the stage . No one was hurt , most all had fun and The Clash woulda been proud .

Anyone got pics?
