GDavis 5-Star Excellent Underrated Show!
From the first notes of DWD to the last notes of Waste, this show is amazing. Down With Disease opened with it's typical "bang" and then led into an great jam. Geulah Papyrus was very memorable as a watery mist began to fill the air. "My Mind's" was a great surprise and a great lead in to Foam which hadn't been played for several shows. Bathtub Gin's lyrics "We love to take a bath" seemed to be a signal to God, because right at that moment the skys opeded up into a torrent of rain. I was completely drenched (along with everyone else out on the lawn) for the rest of the night. The lightening during the this song and the remainder of the 1st set really added to the excitement of the night. Fluffhead had a ton of energy and sounded amazing. Antelope was a great set closer and like Fluffhead had tons of energy.
2nd set opened with a huge Runaway Jim (ran close to 30 minutes long if memory serves me correct). Glide with the "all fall down signal" was a special treat. Theme from the Bottom into Sand and then into Meat was great. Things heated back up with Chalk Dust Torture and a surprise set ender with Bittersweet Motel were a great end to the 2nd set. Waste, although mellow was a great way to end the show since the lyrics truly reflected how everyone felt at the end of the night.
This is an amazing, high energy show that is higly underrated. I only wish some good quality audiance recordings were out there (all of the ones I've heard are very much sub-par). Hopefully the band and Mr. Shapiro will consider releasing the soundboard recordings of this show sometime soon. Whoever hears them will not be disappointed.
