Thanks to Mark Weygandt, from whose website (now defunct) this information was retrieved, along with the informal show reviews and comments below, which were originally posted to the Sugar internet mailing list:
-------------------------------------- From: Kurt M. Hockenbury Well, since no-one else has come forward, I'll attempt a reply/review. The show was at the Elks lodge in Hoboken, NJ. Bob said he was glad he was able to make it, and that he'd been in Austin the past month recording the new album. I got the impression he may have just flown in that day. It wasn't Bob's show per se; it was the first night of the "Friends of Don Brody" show - a local musician who we lost around Christmas. The shows were benefits to help support his wife and children. The Friday night (3/6/1998) show was Camp Hoboken, Kate Jacobs, Frank Bango, Bob Mould, Jimmy Lee, Health and Happiness Show, and The Gefkens. Bob went on a little after nine (the group before him got to do an extra song, apparently he wasn't quite ready). He played six songs, and probably got the biggest crowd reaction of the evening. All songs were on a (apparently borrowed?) acoustic guitar. See a Little Light First Drag of the Day ("Dedicated to me, for having quit smoking three months ago". Cool song) Your Favorite Thing Moving Truck (a new one) ? (another new one, missed the title - someone else care to fill in?) Thumbtack All in all, a good set, even though a short one. I was happy when he opened with "See a little light" as I'd been thinking he should play that all day.
