Location: San Fransisco California USA
I thought the set was really good, nice an mellow as promised. I was very pleased when they played Girlfriend and Falling In Love , and of course, Angels , I was disappointed with the club, Slim's, because i would have rather been able to sit back and relax and enjoy the show than have to fight fucked up people with too much energy for how mellow the show was just to be able to see.
Butch was in fine form though. eg: "Who's mooing at me? Raise your hand if you're mooing at me. (As he tunes his Tele) I've got a good idea. Why don't you fuck off?" and similarly: (I didn't catch what the person said, but he replied) "Does that mean fuck off and go home? Because you can, you know, it's a free country." Pete was sweet on Partytime . I was sorta lookin' forward to some more of his own solo's... but i never mind hearing Max Eider 's. The banter was really good with the audience, I guess that's what i'm trying to say.
The set was excellent. A good mix of older and new songs, and interesting e... encore covers: Over The Rainbow and Take The Skinheads Bowling (Camper Van Beethoven) . not to mention the treat: Thing per request of one of those people in the front. "You want me to play Thing in front of people," Pat asked in disbelief. But then he did.
This wasn't the best show. There was tangible
hostility between the Pat and some drunk concert
goers. What! Oh yeah, no Max to sing "Drink".
Saw Max and Pat years later at the Great American
Music Hall.... nice conclusion. Oh, by the way,
thanks for the small fortune unloading JBC
