Many years after the fact, but this was maybe i don't know my 120th show or so, and probably one of my top 5. very solid 1st set, but tremendous 2nd set. looking at the setlist one would think it would flow well perhaps maybe a bit choppy BUT NOT AT ALL. the 2nd set flowed like molasse, it was SWEET. THANK YOU BOYS..

Rocking show, very high energy. My second show. I have had some time think and listen back to Saturday and Sunday shows. The first set was great, loved the Flicker. This show`s second set was a great straight ahead rock show. The crowd was intensly happy...it was like a huge party in this old theater that happened to, oh yeah, have an awesome rock band on stage! Greta-> Jack was both spacey and powerful, Action Man rocked. Diner was great ("lazy song writing techniques had me playing a charecter in another song"). YSBG was funky, the Impossible rocked but fizzled into a staid funk jam which wound down into Mercy...which picked up again with Flat Foot Floozy. Sharon was pyschadelic and Imitation Leather Shoes had Herring playing razor sharp licks. On to Sunday...

Very Rockin Show. After the final encore the crowd was so pumped nobody stopped clapping until they made it out of the building to the street. I`ve never seen that happen at any concert.

Loved the Greta>Spacey Jam, Diner>JB Rap, YSBG>Jam, and Sharon! Are you kidding me?! I saw the last one in Kansas City, and the crowd during this one was explosive!! Also, great to see Jimmy loading up on the bus wearing his guitar backpack! Thanks for the drumstick, Sunny!

Another top-notch run at the Chicago Theater. WOW!! It just gets better every time. I don`t know how. Those boys have soul down to their toes.
Schooooooooools! I love you like Jelly!
This town is nuts, my kind of place! I don`t ever want to leave.
Come back soon, ya hear? So what the theater cracked down on smoking. It just tastes that much better after the show!

Smokin` show boyz! Once again, Diner melted me. T`was my 1st Sharon, and Jodz was right about that one...wOw! May Your Glass Be Filled was a great treat to sit-n-sink in my seat...so gorgeous. Oh Mercy Mercy me. Lovin` the Panic. Thanks again for a true beaut.

I`m a big fan of this show mainly because they played about 5 songs that I wanted to hear. The 1st set Heroes was quality. The Greta was also quite funky. JoJo was on fire all night. The Diner in the 2nd set was a nice treat as well. The Sharon was by far the standout song of this show. The energy during this show was awesome.
