I don't remember a whole lot about this one either, another CMU show.  Run On had broken up at this point but Sue and RIck were touring together, not doing a Fish & Roses reunion but playing separately.  Les Batteries I believe was originally a project that featured Charles Hayward instead of Rick Brown, though I didn't know this at the time.  All I remember about it were the two drumsets, some electronics, and parts where both drummers were just kicking beats.  The Johnsons at this point were still I think the slow, downwave psychedelia with Korel Tunador on heavily FX-driven guitars.  In the Connan Room, the same room where I saw A Minor Forest, the best Arab on Radar show I've ever seen, My Dad is Dead and a few others; a small room with awkward sound that suffered from the lack of any sort of stage so visibility was limited.
