Review by DollarBill

DollarBill This is a very average show, if not below average. Lots of sloppiness. The bootleg was ok, vocals were a little low.

Landlady starts off the show just fine. Possum has a little foolishness as usual, and a weird end to it. Don't know if Fish stopped for a reason? The Ice jam was a little uninspired, but an ok Ice. Uncle Pen was ok. Fee and ATR were good. Melt was sloppy at the end. Good jam though. Rift seemed tentative and unsure as if they couldn't hear each other well. The Horn intro was off but ok after that. Jim was a good closer.

Tweezer also starts off a little unsure but, gets into a good jam. Trey must have pulled himself out of tune from which he never recovered. It shows during The Horse. Silent is not grooving very well tonight, complete with a false start on vocals from Page. Again, can they not hear each other? Trey remains out of tune during a pretty well played Fluffhead. Guelah has a lot of foolishness before the last verse. Mike's again contains alternate lyric structure with Trey adding backing. Hydrogen again shows Trey's tuning problem. Weekapaug is ok. Mango has some monitor feedback and the singing sounds tired. Mike mentions something about Saddam Hussein before Rosie. It sounds like there was originally more chatter that got cut. Tape flip? Dinner has some sloppy parts. Bouncing is ok. Oh Kee Pa>Suzy is a nice closer for a pretty sub-par show in my opinion.

Double barbershop encore changes it up a little, and the expected Tweeprise wraps it up for the night.

I'm not sure what it was but, this show just doesn't have the IT factor. There are some good jams but, they just don't out weigh the mistakes. Too much fun in Chicago? Anyway, a day off should do them some good.
