Review by AustinTxNate

AustinTxNate Great show, and Numbers is a pretty cool venue. Not a fan of the 8pm show time, and the club could use a few more people taking tickets as the line was 100 people long, and barely moving at showtime.

Most everyone missed the Daisy Hill opener, but we made it in halfway through Say something. Really loving Cruel world, and different world is an awesome acoustic jam.

Highlight was the epic Sleep to dream. They did a great job of taking the repeating bass beat and going darker and louder with it. The sound reminded me of Gary Numan or NIN. Awesome stuff.

Funny story.. I was outback with Johnny Kimock and Craig Myers during setbreak. Johnny went in after a cig or two, and Craig stayed for a bit and chatting with myself and a couple of the girls in our group. We chatted about Rubblebucket and SXSW shows, etc, before he lost track of time and ran in.

Mike and band were already on stage. Mike was making up a song about how Craig must have quit the band, he forgot his responsibilities, and doodle doo, as Craig runs up on stage! Too funny.

Mike was signing my poster, and I apologized and told him that he can blame Craig being late on me, as we were out back chatting during setbreak. He gave me a look that I will never forget. LOL. I still love Mike, and I'm happy to take one for the team. Craig you owe me. :)

Great show. Slight edge to the Austin show, but great show nonetheless. Well worth the 2 1/2 drive.

Review by Hendrix_Phishinfloyd

Hendrix_Phishinfloyd This was only my 2nd Mike Show, although it may be my most memorable concert-going experience ever, even with my attendance of 20+ Phish shows. This was an very small venue, I'm guessing no more than 300 people. I was front row, Mike side. Practically on the stage, and the sound was immense! I set my phone to record and just leaned it against one of the lighting monitors. Quaint!

The band was really clicking, very tight, not a flub that I can recall, and Scott Murawski is an incredible guitarist!! Hats off to you, old man!!

Sleep To Dream was the highlight for me. I didn't even know the band covered it! Stellar. Sugar Shack was ON POINT! I believe Mike said that they have a new lighting setup. It is impressive too, especially in a small club. If you're reading this review in an area where Mike HAS NOT yet stopped and you don't have tickets...SHAME ON YOU!! You're missing out on something special. GO OUT AND GET YOUR TIX!!

At the end of the show, Mike even stood in the back at the goody table and signed stuff, shook hands, and talked. He's a very approachable guy, and I told him so. He signed my shirt, and we stood and talked for a few minutes about nothing in particular: 'Love your Hotline'; 'How do you like Texas'; 'Did you have fun in Mexico', etc, etc, etc.

I'm impressed, Mike. PLEASE come back to Houston!! You can even bring the guys from "the other band" if ya want!
