Penn42 Fun Summer '94 show. Nothing too spectacular, but a well played show nonetheless. The Curtain > Letter to Jimmy Page is really nice with a well executed pre-planned seque taboot. The If I Could that follows is nice as well. Stash isn't that great considering how many awesome ones there are in '94. I love Esther and welcome it with open arms; this one is played nicely. Down with Disease rages appropriately.

Punch > Sparkle is a nice way to open set two. Of the three '94 Gin's I have heard, this one is by far the best. It's quite energetic and has a nice peak. I really like it. Hearing Cities in '94 is odd. Considering that this is the only one played between '89 and '97, it's not a song associated with the era and it seems a little out of place, though it is a perfectly acceptable performance. YEM is fine, GGITS is fun, and the rest of the show is just fine and not really worth noting.

Highlight: The Curtain > Letter to Jimmy Page > If I Could, Bathtub Gin

Overall, a fun but far from essential performance from Summer '94.
