RandomPhan This show gets a lot of hate. I do think it's underrated though.

Curtain with was played great. Heavy things was actually really good. I actually think there have been some really good versions of that in 09.

The numberline jam is awesome. I remember the moment they snapped into the jam, opposed to finishing the outro. The bass was deep and the place was rocking. Carini was FIERCE. the place was raging. Jibboo was a nice jam. Wilson was kind of interesting, neat little segue into 2001 which had the place getting down. Hood did suck. Oh well. Coil had a nice outro.

Set 1 was kind of off. Very standard, at best with a couple nice additions (paul and silas, curtain with, gumbo, heavy things). Unfortunately TTE closed it. Had it been a raging bowie, or some other good high energy song I feel it could have changed the overall view of this set.

Set 2- Pretty interesting song selection. A lot of energy in the 2nd set. Great time.

Being sandwiched between the awesome west coast and east coast runs, this solo midwest show that is very standard compared to those runs gets hate. But there is some pretty good stuff within this show, and it shouldn't be ignored.

People complained about the open air, and massive size. I went in expecting the sound to blow. I was very surprised because, at least where i was, the sound was actually very good and the bass was super deep. I could feel the bass vibrating my body all night and loved it. I was page side in the seats, front row, a little ways back. I was extremely comfortable and satisfied w/ my spot. If you wanted to sit, like during TTE, it was nice because we had nothing blocking us while sitting so we could still clearly watch the stage.
