DollarBill This is the second and last show at the Tower Theatre, 65th of the tour and not any better than last nightís show in my opinion. Iím not sure if the boys are hung over or what, because this show is sloppy, messy, you name it, just not locked in. Again, Iím sure people had fun and all, but this is not up to par for this leg of the tour. The recording also suffers a bit from age and tape generations.

Itís been a little while for Axilla, so this one was ok, but a little off at the end. Sparkle was just average and so was Divided Sky, with a sloppy jam, and so was Mound. Stash had some rough spots, Trey fell of in the middle, but the jam was ok. The Horse was blah; Silent was good and felt more automatic in the timing. Poor Heart was pretty good before moving quickly into Maze. They really rushed the intro and kind of missed Pageís climax during his solo. IDK even sounds tired and average Golgi was rough at the top, but turned out ok by the end, and then Trey blew the last lick. Really sub-par set for this leg of the tour in my opinion.

Llama rocked as usual and included some funny yelling from Mike and Trey, who pulled himself out of tune. Punchís opening was cut by an old tape problem and was ok, but still not quite there yet. You can hear Trey call out YEM, which was ok at first and then off a bit. You can also hear Trey yell at Fish that the tempo is too fast before the tramp jam. Lizards was average to me and then the Balls come out and it sounds like the tape source changes here to more of an audience recording. Pen and Bouncing were completely cut from the source that I heard. So we go right into a second set Antelope? Not sure what prompted the set list changes, but this one just got weird and then had a good jam in it, and then it just got weak to me at the end. HYHU brings Fish out again for a lengthy pause while he decided what to do. They settle on Rosie and Iím not kidding, this might be one of the best songs of the night! Thatís how Iím feeling seriously! Trey picks his guitar back up and, I think, surprises everyone by playing Mars. Its kind of a unique Mars, but arenít they all? Then, after the fiasco in Michigan, Fish says ďNot again with the mic stands.Ē as Mike and Trey screw around. Weird way to end a rough, lackluster set for me.

Trey needs to tune before the hilarious moment when he admits that he doesnít know the lyrics to Monkey. Itís been a while for this one and it shows. The feeling is definitely not the same. Everyone gets shushed for Grace before clearing out.

Wow, I canít believe two people gave this show four or five stars. Overall, I though this was an awful show for 1993. Iím giving this one two stars to bring the average way down. I should go one, but Iím being kind. Sorry folks, just my opinion.
