DollarBill Ok show tonight. Kind of hissy bootleg, boomy Page heavy mix. A few chopped spots and tape flips.

Nice Jim to get warmed up. Good Forbins, complete with Icculus. Good Mockingbird. Pen and Sloth have a few warts in the middle. Landlady and parts of Fluff sound like Trey's out of tune. Broken string? Fluff's Travels has some rough spots too. Sparkle is good. Stash is really good tonight, good jam. Coil has it's problems in the middle, and after a rough start Golgi is a good closer.

So they save most of the antics for the Bowie intro tonight which leads into a messy middle of Bowie itself but a good jam anyway. Cavern is good. YaMar is fast and disjointed at times. The Mike's Groove has a weak climax tonight, and a few rough spots in Hydrogen. Weekapaug is pretty good, sounds like Mike is teasing his bass line to Contact, and a tape flip? The segway into Mango is cool, first one I can recall hearing like that. Horn is ok. Fish can't seem to get the vaccuum to work right away so you get a bonus trombone solo in Love You. "I need some duct tape." he says. Glide is ok, but Llama is a good closer, nice jam.

Double Mike encore again, just happened a few shows ago, is a little lacking although the BBFCFM is rocking as usual. Worst of all right as Fishman starts a little banter before the count off the bootleg gets cut! Oh well.

Ok show, a little lacking in energy and tightness.
