waxbanks Dark, dark, dark. If you like 2003 then this show is money in the bank; otherwise you're advised to steer clear, as this is 151-proof Summer '03 midnight madness. So many dark '03 jams were resolved with performances of Bug; this version of Twist is a perfect illustration of why that move was necessary. The half-hour Scents is tempestuous and imperfect and wonderful; Walls gets (surprise!) dark to close the show; late-Set II YEMs are always a little wild, and this one's no exception. If you care about the covers then these covers are something you'll no doubt care about, but it's the long aggressive jams that make this show. The runup to IT was excellent and this is the gnarliest of the pre-Limestone shows. Enjoy.
