kidrob Really intimate fun show. I enjoyed set one more than set two. Sugar Blue on harmonica was a major highlight. Also, it's a major nod to this show that Gordo tells a story about. 21 years, great memory.

Crumbling bones was my favorite song in set two. Pretty good energy by the band. I wish they would come around here more. It was awesome to watch the band walk right by me after both sets. I thanked them both times and let them know it was a great time. Air Gordon slams it home in Chicago.

The_Steiner i thought this show was just absolutely fantastic, on all counts. Park West is a great little venue, never really seems too crowded.

Set I:
just a whole lotta bumpin and shakin going on. this set had a real blues-y, rock-y feel to it, and everyone in the room was sharin in the groove. mike starts telling a lil story about 4/10/1993 at the Aragon (very close to the Park West), and then, surprise, surprise! Sugar Blue ambles on stage for Say Something, Miss You, and Messin' With the Kid!!! one of the great chicago harp players.... kudos for having him sit in. highlights: Face>Susskind>Face, Say Something, Messin With the Kid

Set II:
well were all just rarin to go, and boy did MGB deliver. that second set was a monster, and continued in having some played-by-Phish numbers in it. not much to say xcept that they all burned down the house. Highlights

Encore: you'd have to be daft to dislike a Funky Bitch encore. that place was bumpin til the end. and then mike came out to the merch are to say whats up and he signed some gear for me!!

give this show a listen!!!
