From the Holding Our Breath Official Fanzine Part 4: Slowdive – Tour Diary, pages 25-29, written by Rachel Goswell:

So, Providence. We've never been here before (it's about an hours drive from Boston). The venue is around 500 capacity. Paranoia sets in yet again. I get handed a local free paper ("The Nice Paper"), by an SK person (a couple of them are here and will also come to Boston tomorrow). Quite funny really, we're the cover story. I did the interview over the phone a week before we came out and basically spent the entire time slagging SBK (as you do). The lovely interviewer (a miss Wendy Borges) printed the whole damn lot! Good on her! Give the woman a drink! We went out to a much classier tucker joint tonight. Everything was far more relaxed and friendly. I get back to the venue around ten pm and horror of horrors the venues virtually empty! My worst nightmare! We're not on till midnight, so I just hope that it'll fill up. Two support bands tonight -Difference Engine and Purple Ivy Shadows. By all accounts both bands were good. By the time we go on the venue is looking respectable (around 300). Indeedy the gig goes well, and everyone gets suitable paraletic later on. Neil goes off with Difference Engine for a smoke or two, and the rest of us find a lovely hotel to rest our heads. Bliss!!
