PHATTSKIS A damp night and evidently tough ticket outside. I remember this red-headed kid begging me for a ticket (I don't know why he was singling me out) and then others thinking I had tickets swamping me for a miracle until I just said screw it and walked in the door. Simply smoking first set with a little special song thrown in for good measure. I know the real story behind the Midnight on the Highway but I will never phriends might though...

Second set blew us away. It sounds as good as it looks and no particular highlight as the set was a highlight ending in a spectacular Hood. The Good Time Bad Times encore was truly fitting as the tour had seen both for band and phans!
Score: 1
