Show Notes:
My ticket says Section 9, row N, seat 34. But I moved to an empty section ahead of that, the back row. the spotlight on that side of the arena was squealing, so I moved nearly to the middle of the back of the arena to get away from that (you may mildly hear it in the background in the right channel). Looking at the seating chart, I'd have to say "row J, section 10, unknown seat, as the section was empty". I was right near the bottom left corner of the section.

I went into this gig with cautious optimism, and Messr. Cooper delivered in spades. While his band may appear a bit "buttrock", appearance-wise on stage, they had down the 'tones' for all the old songs, and it was just like one big 70's party. Lots of old stuff was played, and how Alice takes a show to another level with his showmanship was a real treat. Lots of props and action...sadly, I was shut down filming with a few songs to go, and you hear the security guard (at the start of "I Love The Dead") tell me to stop/I have to delete it/I saw you take the flash card out, but then she wandered off and never came back. So the show *is* filmed up to that point (will try and make a youtube link soon, if I can find the flash cards, haha), and I'd say 90% of the cool stuff was captured visually.

A very solid near-100-minute set, I would recommend this to even the casual Alice fan. It was a very fun time, and I think the recording came out mighty stellar for being in a 1/3 full "concrete barn".

While he's a bit over eighteen, he's not under your wheels. And prolly both his fingertips and earholes bleed after bringing this stuff to you on a fake-blood platter. His name is Dennis, and he deserves your alms for his work. I just need some rest after nailing 20 shows in 23 days (and many more bands than that, when you factor in opening acts and festivals). And a few healthy "fuck offs" never hurt no one...

The vault is down, the new shit is here. Give it a lissen (sic)
