Review by DaReba

DaReba The first set is fun just hearing these guys blow the roof off a small venue. All you need to do is jump to the Chalkdust.
Peeeeee nominal.
Mike and Fish take this into a dance version of DEG , maybe? Trey just is losing himself. And page does what he does best plays notes to where you don't even know if he's playing because he is harmonizing perfectly with Mike and trey . This Chalkdust flies for about 3 minutes straight. my neck is sore from rocking so hard

Review by aybesea

aybesea I really do wish that they offered half stars on reviews here. I mean, this is a 97 show with CDT, Gin, Simple, JJLC, Hood and Free in the second set. If this was a 3.0 show people would be creaming their jeans!

Granted, none of these is a stellar, go to version of the respective song. But this show would have been a blast.

It's a 3.5 in my book... but, as I mentioned... that's not an option. Too bad.

Review by zsmith0307

zsmith0307 Another run-of-the-mill yet solid Spring 97 outing from the band. Only highlights are above-average and ripping versions of Bitch and CDT, yet nothing is really a lowlight. JJLC would get a better work-out in a week. In general, most of these shows outside of 2-17 are warm-ups for what would come later. Gave it 3 stars, but you can safely skip.

Talk[1] Standard

Split Open and Melt: Standard.

SET 2:

Chalk Dust Torture: Interesting to close the first set with Zero, then open the second set with another rager. And this one definitely smokes. Type I all the way and red hot. Would recommend.

Bathtub Gin: Standard. >

Simple: Cool transition into Jesus. >

Jesus Just Left Chicago: Standard.

Harry Hood: Below average. >

Free: Free has never been played before Hood. Free has been played once after Hood and this was that one time.

Johnny B. Goode: Standard.

Summary: First set is pretty meh. Second set has some spice too it though. Just nothing that I would necessarily replay. Fun though. 3.5/5

Replay Value: Chalkdust Torture

[1] Trey on acoustic guitar.

2001 contained Super Bad teases from Trey. Talk featured Trey on acoustic guitar.
