RollinInMyGrego Show #2: I was only 16, but I think at this point I knew I was hooked. This show clearly gets overshadowed by an incredible Fall '97, including the shows the night before and after, but this one is by no means a sleeper. The 2nd set just has an incredible arc, variety and flow. Not my ideal setlist but nearly perfect execution. The contrast between high intensity psychedelic madness of Saw It Again, Piper and Caspian and the serene calming Swept Away > Steep in between is just perfect. Then to finish things off with balls to the wall rocking Izabella > Tweeprise. There are gems scattered throughout the rest of the show--Funky Bitch > 2001 bonkers opener, typical excellent '97 Taste, dark and story Tweezer and a monster 2 song encore--but it's the entire 2nd set that really stands out.
