ajcmixer Coming off the two pretty damm good shows in VA, this first of two hometown shows left me a bit lacking but a very solid show nevertheless. The guy with the orange Skin It Back sign ran past me in the orchestra and I'll bet he was the happiest guy in the building...:-wink/smile!

My friend wanted the rock and roll side of the band tonight and I would say he got it: Possum, Tube, Mike's Song, Axilla (saw the NJ license plate in the lot) in the 1st set. I love Joy and was very pleased to see it repeated so quickly. And who wasn't happy 'bout getting Happiness Is a Warm Gun?

2nd set came out rocking and rolling with CDT>Sand>Golden Age, one of the highlights of the show. Really dug the Golden Age. Wolfman's was ok but the song of the show to my ears was Walk Away, besides it hitting me personally for what I'm going thru presently the band ripped it a new a**hole, just a great and incendiary version. Bug, another favorite and had me dancing hard while those around me chose to sit. Fluffhead seemed extra special tonight. And The Wedge>Antelope also felt extra special and made for a great one-two punch to close out the show and left me bathed in my own sweat. And, finally, the Character Zero put an exclamation point on an excellent 2nd set/show.

Happy 4th of July, looking forward to the musical fireworks tonight!

Peace,
Alex
