Lush @ City Gardens - Trenton, NJ 03/28/92

City Gardens was a magical place.  I wax poetic about it often in many of my reviews.  On this particular night it brought old friends together.


I ran into a couple of friends that I had not seen since High School.  This was about a 3 1/2 year time span.  They were heading to see Lush and Babes in Toyland at City Gardens that night.  Babes in Toyland I had heard.  Who hadn't thanks to Beavis and Butthead.  Lush I had not heard but I was willing to go anyway.  When I told them that I didn't know Lush they said that there was no way that I wasn't going with them.  They knew I would love them.  I did.  I still do.  Their layered guitars are the epitome of shoegazing goodness without the deafening volume of My Bloody Valentine.   I saw them again in '92 at Lollapalooza.  This started my love affair with Lush so it will forever be a night to remember.

As I go farther back into the archive to review shows that I have seen it becomes harder and harder.  The memory is not what it used to be.  Especially considering the drugs that I was doing during this time period.  I have no photos.  Many of my ticket stubs are gone although I still have a few.  The one thing that I still have though is the internet.  And it never seems to fail.  Instead of a review I will let you watch the concert for yourself.  Thanks to YouTube the show exists in its entirety.  I tried to spot myself but could not.  Enjoy it.  I know that I did. 

See you at the next show!
