Pjfmc Suzy starts the show off strong. This version sounded really good to me after a few listens. Band is super tight. Mike sounds really good. My Friend and PH are both tight, Landlady sounds less good but I think it's just the bootleg.

Note: This is the last of the '92 And I See You's (NICUs). The song doesn't get played again until it is slightly retooled for '94! And you know what? I get it, that minute long "doo doo doo" bridge really leaves something to be desired.

Sloth sounds good to me, maybe a tad shambolic but this show has a really driving energy. Very nice Divided Sky. Brief Guelah and then they stumble into It's Ice. They get through the song OK and the jam is tasty, dark(ish) and twisty (not Twist-y) leading to a well placed Horn. High Energy I didn't Know and very fun Possum to close set 1.

Set TWO. They come out swinging playing fun and loose versions of Sanity and Buried Alive. The bootleg captures a very dark and cool sounding Wilson. My Sweet One takes us into Mike's Groove, all right here we are it's set 2 baby, what you got for me tonight? It is a darn good Mike's, near top shelf for the era, although Hydrogen is iffy. Trey throws in the old lyrics at the beginning. The Jam on Mikes is fiery and Paug is pretty stellar. Mound is a great call. Lizards is typically good, as is Llama. Cold as Ice is good (such as it is), the Terrapin Vacuum solo is... musical. Golgi App is a good closer and the bootleg includes the crowd cheering for an encore. The encores are good.

Solid show. Mikes Groove is worth checking out and the solid playing, good energy and the Ice jam make this show worth hearing, however it is lacking a certain something to put it over the top into a must hear. Good show!
