There were 2 more songs after Funky Bitch - I Sure Miss My Mind with Tom Cleary showing off his vocal chops, and at 01:55, Mike announced time for one more - Hap-Nappy to finish.
Strange but great to see Cactus in such an intimate setting. Mike had the show-closing slot - onstage at 00:45. Hall half-full - 350 people? - band setup with keys on left and percussion on right (opposite to last night). Exploratory Sugar Shack to open. Stand Still transitioned into She Said which also flowed smoothly into That's The Way. The new cover was out of place in this set and the floor thinned out further as a result although a storming Funky Bitch was the crowd-pleaser of the night.
Band well-rehearsed and relaxed throughout. Majority of JITD attendees appear to be here for Moe rather than Mike. Early slot tonite - onstage at 20:00
