In the middle of Carini, Trey dedicated the song to Pete Carini and told a story about Carini trying to tackle somebody who ran up on stage during the previous show. Tweezer contained a Fire (Ohio Players) and Wolfman's Brother teases from Trey. Hello My Baby was performed without amplification. Hood contained a Drowned tease from Trey and also was unfinished. Prior to the encore and before the final note of Chalk Dust, the crowd chanted "¡Olé Olé Olé!," leading to a tease by the band before leaving the stage.

ADAWGWYO At the time this was my favorite of the tour besides 7/6. Solid show. The Carini is comical and started the show off with a bang. I love how Fishman starts yelling when they start saying "Carini's gonna get ya!"
Just an all around solid setlist really but this Tweezer is a BEAST! Maybe my favorite that I have witnessed.... in the first set mind you!

This is the night where they played a lot of one-offs of the tour. Only Carini, only Boogie On, only Drowned, only Mule, etc... Solid Drowned I might add. Also really like this Hood->Isabella better than the one from 11/16/97. The Violent Femmes bit was cool as it was a part where both the Americans and the Europeans could come together on a very familiar sing-along.

This venue was basically a square with a real low over-hanging balcony around the whole perimeter of the flour, maybe six feet deep. There was a bar up there, and stairs that took you up onto the roof where you could stare down through a sunroof onto the dance floor and stage below. Very surreal. We stayed up there awhile and smoke hash spliffs and bullshitted while listening to the music, watching the dance floor, all while gazing at the Spanish stars.

Oh, the memories. Nastalgia will be the death of me.

Review by pikepredator

pikepredator This is a solid show start to finish. The monster jams come almost back-to-back in Tweezer and Drowned.

this tweezer . . . holy crap. starts out funky, with that patient sort of groove that is gonna go places. and go places it does. around 10 minutes fishman starts to propel the beat forward, and trey soon follows suit by playing some licks that start rolling downhill, gathering momentum. Mike is in the pocket, Page isin the background.

after that trey starts heading up the volcano and at 13 minutes it's coming to a boil, similar to the one from 10/30. we get an eruption a bit later that might be the end, but lord have mercy it isn't, page is banging on the keys and the whole band is hosing everyone down without gaining too much speed (the hallmark of a power tweezer imo). they really take their time at the peak of this one and by 15:30 it's holy shit really?? Trey finally gives in to some of his signature licks but they just don't stop until about 17 minutes in. destructive four minute stretch there. the cool-down at the end is welcome and the a capella set closer is well-earned.

sweet jesus that is what a non-exploratory Tweezer is all about.

mcgrupp81 Listened to this show a couple of days ago. The Drowned is one of the standouts from this Europe run.

Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio This Tweezer is 20 minutes of beautiful, down-stated Funk joy. Definite highlight of the show and one of the highlights of the European tour. Other than that, this is a solid if somewhat unspectacular show. Standard/good versions of SOAMelt, Drowned and Theme. Interesting cover during the Mule Duel and a Hood -> Izabella that looks better on paper than it sounds on tape.

3.5 / 5 based on the power of this Tweezer
