Review by Looking_For_Owls

Looking_For_Owls It's a travesty that this show isn't rated higher. There isn't a week song in the setlist and it contains not only the single greatest Tom Marshall performance of all time, but maybe the greatest cover tune of all time. Most Tom Marshall performances are kind of a goofy joke i.e. 500 miles, etc. but this rendition of The Who's "We're Not Gonna Take It" is truly spectacular. It's sung with real intensity, and one can hear for the first time that Tom can really sing. Add in the Halley's>Tweezer to start the second set, and the solid song selection throughout (not a downer in the bunch in my opinion, even Bug is the better original version before the unfortunate lyric change) and this show doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
