The second set opened with a Mardi Gras parade. The Chinese parade was therevious night.

Obviously Grate Ist set Opener!
Little Light debut with second performance of S.O.T.M. to follow in first set has a nice flow for these new tunes. Second set has Brent on fire probably due to his first set performances. I think Brent was in a good mood. Brent fan? - IMHO Wonderful Noise this nightą

Song debuts are rarely as good as when they get used to a tune. It's unfortunate that brent died before most of his tunes got up and running. Sad, especially since little light is a great jam. The syth rifts brent plays during the chorus just shine. SOTM Is the opposite scenario. Jerry's voice was sounding better on the debut version then here. sounded like he forgot some words momentarily. But still a solid version. It was also nice to see a change up with the transition out of Throwin' Stones.

Can't say Victim was a nice experience, they started too fast and then collapsed, before picking themselves back up and barely getting through the tune. Then We Can Run sorta redeems it (I have to hear some more versions of this one, but as of now i'm about as fond of it as VOTC) I don't think these tunes are bad songs though, the boys just needed to work on the tighness a little more. Victim has rarely had energy to sustain itself all the way through and usually has a very confusing point towards the end before everyone rushes for the door to the next song. Thankfully Uncle John stopped in to save the day. With the exception of VOTC and WCR, the second set was a solid ride, not to mention good good lovin' fun to close everything down.

They seem to have a few spots of tired confusion in a sea of brilliance, and this has been the case since Long Beach '88. Certainly shows their professional skills as musicians, being able to screw up that hard on Victim only to bounce back in an instant to tear the rest of the place apart. really can't wait to get furthur into '89, it's sounding like a goooooooddd year.
