Having been there is influencing my vote this round. So far I am the lone Riverport vote.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

It was a good gin.

The Providence Bowie has been massacring the competition so hard I hadn't bothered to listen to it yet or vote in any of the matchups. 

Listened to it on the ride home today and even at this stage of the game it's still no contest, Riverport is great but it's just nowhere near the level of improv on display during this Bowie.  The Lassie jam is one of my favorite segments of all time, somehow it's goofy and eerie at the same time.   The Lizards like jam that precedes it is a sublime piece as well.

Should be an epic battle between it and the UCF Stash for the final.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Throats will be slit before it is over, I am sure.
Dysfunction and itemized lists of people’s failures are where it’s at.
