1997-03-12: mount holyoke college - south hadley, massachusetts
a pretty good sounding recording of a really neat show, before they start playing amy and emily explain to the crowd that they had their manager poll the first twenty people in line to see if would be okay if they played the entire, as yet unreleased, "shaming of the sun" record in order, and that the answer was yes. they also said they flipped a coin that came up no, but were doing it anyway. the songs are super fresh with the live arrangements still being worked out, and ulali sits in on several of them, including "blood quantum". highly recommended.
