Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

True which is why I am thinking of cutting back on the 3.0 shows.

I'm sure Hampton 04 and that Amsterdam show from 96 will make it on the list.

The crowd: mostly North American hippies strung out on dope, with a few Dutch folks (including yours truly) pushing them aside to get to the bar for another round of beer.

There's no way we could play a country song as well as a country band or a Latin song as well as a Latin band. We could never expect to do that. We just keep doing what we do, what we know how to do. We sound like ourselves. - Mike

Everyone knows how badly that show sucks, but the first set is actually pretty good with a nice Split.
The must have gotten pretty fucked up at setbreak 'cause that second/third set is straight bad.

So this round is pretty much reviews of 2 and 3.0 shows?

I've never really thought of what 1.0 shows are regarded as "bad"

Curious to see what shows are picked.
Raleigh '99 comes to mind.  12/16/99

Thursday, 12/16/1999
Reynolds Coliseum, Raleigh, NC
Set 1: Wilson > Chalk Dust Torture, Lawn Boy, Limb By Limb, Horn, Back on the Train, Roggae, Heavy Things, Camel Walk, Possum
Set 2: Sand, The Mango Song, Wading in the Velvet Sea[1] > Tweezer > Runaway Jim
Encore: Bittersweet Motel > Tweezer Reprise
[1] Ended with a short, spacey delay loop jam.
Notes: Before the show, Mike brought a big shaggy doll on the stage and sat it on top of his bass cabinet. Velvet Sea ended with a short, spacey delay loop jam.

Faux and Gumbo drool over this show, personally I think the tour peaked w/ 13Dec. w/ a steady descent through Hampton.

of course it's those two that drool over this show. the tweezer is awesome, but other than that, it's pretty meh-tastic.

Since we are talking about December '99, I will say again that I prefer the 17th over the 18th.

the Sand from the 16th is far better than the dud from the 13th. the whole second set on the 13th is grade A boring. not sure how the tour peaked there. 17th and 18th also have second sets that kill the 13th.

that with the above statement i may be agreeing with faux and gumbo is of course worrisome, but there we are.

i think 'worst shows' will make for particularly interesting discussion if they're pre-hiatus. as dec. '99 makes clear, opinions as to quality vary widely around here.

I really like set I from 13Dec.99 esp. the Piper.

I agree, it was either one or the other.  2Dec.99 for ex.  weak first set but solid second set.
