Review by GitDown

GitDown This is another one of those shows that stands out for the hyper, almost manic energy, similar to 11/8 in Tuscaloosa (see my review). First and foremost, Mike slappa da bass with an extra fervor on almost everything that calls for it, namely Melt, Fluffhead, Tweezer, Foam, Weekapaug, and Cavern. Where he's not slap-happy, he's a tease machine: The O'Jays' For the Love of Money in the beginning of Possum, two separate teases of Chic's Good Times during the Mike's jam (the latter of which, he's joined by Fish, who provides a nice disco beat), and he's the driving force behind the Barracuda tease in MSO, even channeling a bit of Jaco or Victor before they start the verses.

The energy comes through in the vocal stylings of Ya Mar, Foam (here possibly spurred by a hot mic), MSO, and especially I Didn't Know. This one is not to be missed.

For whatever reason, the boys were majorly hopped up this evening and obviously having a ton of fun. And to our benefit, it really comes through. One need only listen to the crowd after the Tweeprise to know how appreciative they were.
