Review by whatstheuse324

whatstheuse324 6/28/00 raged! Would 6/29? You bet!!! The entire show had a very Big Cypress theme in my opinion.

Lawn baby! Funky Bitch got the party funky right away, Wilson had us all united in chant and was a good, heavy version. Limb By Limb was over ten minutes and had solid type 1 jamming, building up to some brilliant peaks. However, everyone will remember this show for two things. The first thing is the Drowned>Rock and Roll that owns the second quarter to end set 1. Sick? Ridiculous? Amazing? Yes to all of those adjectives and to many more. Period.

I got rained on during the intermission but it stopped just in time for the beginning of set 2.

I'm sure the chant for Destiny Unbound sounded like "BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH" on stage, so the alarm clock going off intro to BOAF shut everybody up. (The irony is that Destiny Unbound would be played for the first time in over a decade on 2/28/03 out of BOAF). This could possibly be the very first "Angry Birds." It was a monster, like the big, red bird. This version would kill many pigs on the first try and get three stars without a doubt. It even had it's own Catapult attached. The guys from ROVIO that made "Angry Birds" may have heard this version first.

Everyone was THRILLED to hear Heavy Things. Really. THRILLED. I've seen a rubber band. And I've seen a peanut stand. I've even seen a needle wink it's eye. But I've seen just about everything when I've seen everyone THRILLED for Heavy things. Honest to God.

Sand was dark and sinister techno, even darker than the Mike's the night before. It was the complete opposite of Heavy Things, but equally received.

After Sand is when the the second thing people will remember about this night happened. The show took a turn to the ridiculous, but in a great way. Meatstick had memories of Big Cypress rushing back to me, and before my eyes was born the first Japanese Meatstick. Hilarious! Carini was mentioned, Bart tackled a dude on stage, Trey said he wish he could have us all on stage and brought Bart back out, just a lot of fun antics. Meatstick>Cities was fun, especially the Japanese Meatstick references. Walk Away was rocking, Antelope was RAGING and had the little Meatstick tease in the beginning. After that Antelope, the band somehow had enough energy to bust out Frankenstein, (what!?!). Show over, right? Wrong. People can say what they want about Velvet Sea, but this version was once again for us out on the lawn like If I could was the day before. It was beautiful and ended with the Meatstick tease, book-ending the night and referencing the incredible Velvet Sea>Meatstick experience from Big Cypress that we were all still feeling. Trey even spoke again right before the ending, expressing how much he and Page loved playing in Jersey at PNC and thanked the crew. Character Zer0 was a good send off to Hartford, but the main speaker on the lawn blew out and lost the signal, so the lawn experienced a very low and muffled Zer0. It was all good though. Both nights of PNC 2000 were OFF THE HOOK and are must have shows from 2000.
