Review by Fikus

Fikus My 7th show, located a quick 45 minute drive from U of Illinois. Lights went down almost immediately after we got inside at 7:30. Seats were behind the stage, Page-side, and there was a lot of room - definitely not sold out.

Overall, a standard show, with a couple odd setlist choices. Some highlights/notes:
Uncle Pen - great opener, got everybody bouncing and extremely well-played considering it was such a bust-out.
Funky Bitch - after a 136 show bustout, they decided to play a song they had played the night before. Good version, though.
Rest of 1st set was played really well - esp. Jesus Just Left Chicago. Wilson > Disease was an energetic one-two punch at the end.

Second set sounded great and was fun. Ghost was very strong, though it was a pretty rough segue into Sample. Loved the transition between Wedge and Bag, as Bag picked up off the Wedge's last beat. Sand was very groove oriented, as was normal for the time. Good, rocking show but nothing earth-shattering.
