TheEmuFirst thing's first: The Dog Log in the soundcheck is pretty amusing. First, as is so often the case, they play it for Paul, and call it "Rude Log" and then Mike starts in with "Rude's Log, Stardate 12-6." Then there is a whole bunch of banter, especially from Trey to Marley, telling her that the song is about and for her. Finally, towards the end, there are Jeff Holdsworth references, and the last line is changed to "Where's Holdsworth gone?" As far as the show, I found it to be pretty much average. The shouts of "Alligator" in YEM appear to be in reference to the Shaggy Dog soundcheck from the day before (which itself included lots of shouts of "Alligator?!?!?!"). YEM is average, though, and the B&D segment is kind of lame (though the vocal jam is decent). The highlight for me is actually Fishman announcing "This is an audience that needs to be punished" before launching into Whipping Post and a brutal Henrietta guitar solo. There are few things more frightening than a Henrietta guitar solo, but judging from the other reviews of this gig, it was merited. I was ready to give this show two stars, because all of Possum except for the intro leading into "Wait" was cut, and I thought it would be terrible to end a set with that 5 minute "Wait" business. Alas, though, it was just cut, so I'll go three stars.
Score: 0
