This show really impressed me, even more because I didn't really expect too much from a Nebraska show. It's funny because someone (seemingly from the band, I can't tell) says something like "This is the lamest trip we've ever been taken on in our entire career. I think it's just worth mentioning that" at the end of the first track, Good Morning Lil' School Girl. Then they play an outstanding version of Morning Dew, like saying "We're so much better than this venue". After Dew, they have trouble getting water from anyone, then play a sweet Dark Star. They converse a lot during the first songs. The rest of the first set follows suit. St. Stephen, The Eleven and Death Don't Have No Mercy, all great, especially Death. Set two begins with a very quick but accurate Cryptical Envelopment into an almost non-existant Drums into a killer The Other One. Nice transitions on Other One. A good version of Alligator and another Drums, much longer this time, follows. Then a twenty minute Caution(Do Not Stop On Tracks) is the extended closer. Very cool. There is a Feedback and a We Bid You Good Night which were the end of this show, but Good Night was missing so Caution is pretty much the end now. No big deal because Good Night isn't much anyway. A wonderful show, they seemed to have it all together that night. Too bad they thought my home state was lame, but they still played an awesome show there in spite of that. And I guess it couldn't have been too bad, they came back.

I enjoyed reading Lucas' review as well. What a privilege this must have been.

I wish I had been able to see this show live! Actually it was played 10 years before I was born though.
