Notes: Carini included a verse about the streaker from the show two nights earlier. Stash contained Fikus teases from Mike. Paul and Silas was played for the first time since February 28, 1997 (115 shows).
NO.thing but Fire from start to finish. An intense show that was relentless in playing and structure. Taste was extremely well executed. Carini was shredded. Love Me. Intense. Ride Captain Ride. Chicago classic rock at its finest. Fee was beautifully played. (it needed a megaphone, thou) paul & silas: We love this song in the windy city. Roggae was another well executed and well-lighted (thanks Chris!) tune. Water in the sky was the first set breather. Stash was wet. Cavern just to keep u bouncing threw the set-break.
Chalkdust was the rocker that it should be to open a set. Meat was pure funk before a Who-esq version of Rock n Roll > Down w/ disease was akin to the Red Hot Chili Peppers on steroids > Piper was where everyone was looking for a bowl > before melting into a velveta sea > and RUNNING out like an Antelope.
Been Caught Stealin' with Trampolines? Yes, Please.
this show is extremely enjoyable...**asideI>> having had the privilege of attending both shows, there is a strong similarity between this show's set II and that of the NoCarol show eleven days in the future**...i will say, however, that although i FINALLY got my Carini (which i had actually requested two nights prior via a mid-set hand-written letter that i personally put in the hands of the song's namesake--**asideII>> in said letter, i also pointed out that, on that 6th day of Nov, 1998, there were exactly 420 days left until the year 2000 [thanks ESPN!!] which, at the time and seemingly incorrectly, i assumed was the impetus for Makisupa leading-off the second frame**) and, although, the first set opened with a RAAAAGING Taste and was made up of a few well played rarities (only the 2nd Ride Cpt Ride since '92, the 1st Paul&Silas since Fall '97 and an ain't-seen-the-light-of-day-since-EuroWinter'97 Paul & Silas), i would have to give the next night the upper hand as the best show of the Fall o' '98 Chi-town run
