From the Arguyves: Forever in Jean Shorts

"We are a non-profit organization"
-Jake, 7/3/2005

This month's release takes us to the east end of Waterbury for some Independence Day jams.  Pictures from this show depict a band with less gray hair and a few pounds lighter, but sounds equally as thunderous as you're used to.  Featuring a few welcomed rarities ("Fire in your Eyes", "The Avenue", "Such Great Heights") and the best damn Bono look-alike I've ever seen ("The Unforgettable Fire" opened, see below), this one should keep your head bobbing through the rest of the summer.
