TheEmu Ugh. I guess the music, or at least, what I could hear of the music was OK, but the recording is simply awful and more or less unlistenable. It sounds like someone holding a memo recorder down by their hip at the very back of packed venue. The crowd noise is far more clear than the music. ("Punch 'em in the eye!! Bathtub Gin!! Bong hits!!") I don't really have anything to say about the music, but, in keeping with my practice of considering recording quality as part of the ratings, I gotta slap a one star on this. Nothing to hear here, move along.

DollarBill Well it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be to listen to this for an hour, but it was a really awful recording to hear. Too bad that's the case with this one, because from what I could hear, it sounds like a pretty good show. Trey and Fish are on fire! ...pun intended...

So, that being said, I agree that this is a one star recording, and only super hard core fans will listen to this. I would bump that up to two stars because the band rocked so hard and we don't know what the first set was like. But the only reason I'm going to give a third star is purely for the Harpua! I love a good Harpua story.
