Nice show to open the cold 3 day stand in downtown Providence. Nothing really stood out as spectacular, but nothing really sucked either. A nice and steady show. Definately primed me for what lied ahead in the next 2 shows!

the best Iko Iko i've ever heard. Brent goes OFF on vocals and keys. The entire show (or at least what i've got on tape) has an AMAZING energy. I think this three night stand might be among theire better runs.

First la bamba? It's kind of funny, a friend of mine (who was there with me) heard it in the good lovin' section. You can here a few notes of it at about 4:24, which was good enough if you've got good hearing :)

an absolute corker of a Black peter. Amazing

Fun fact: I went to this show with my friend Becca and her friend Mike. He was a quiet, kind of weird guy who was playing in his fledgling band Phish...
