Review by Miguelito

Miguelito This is a typical, which is to say very solid, Fall ‘94 show, with a couple of noteworthy things worth mentioning here.

The first of these is the Bathtub Gin, making its first appearance of the tour. And it comes back raging! While not even close to my favorite version, it’s a very enjoyable one and a welcome return to the lineup. It’s worth noting too that PYITE preceded Gin, also making its tour debut. A bit later we get a Forbin’s > Mockingbird that is always worth listening to, and has an interesting narration focused on a Spirit Beam before heading into Gamehenge.

The next is the 1-2 set II opening sequence of The Curtain > Tweezer. I love this opening combo. The Tweezer is relatively short but don’t let that dissuade you from giving it a listen. Like the Gin, this isn’t a stellar version, or even close to being best from this tour, but it’s got some interesting moments and I like how it dissolves into Lifeboy. The CDT and Coil are both very solid and enjoyable. The CDT is a bit extended, which is notable since it’ll be the longest version of the year until NYE.

The encore tunes, with the horns, are fun and it’s a shame they didn’t join them earlier on. I particularly like the Ya Mar here but the Cavern is pretty great too. In all, this is fun, solid show that has a few real highlights but doesn’t really break any new ground.
