This show was a Lawn Boy release party. Trey dedicated Reba to his friend "Dave." YEM contained Charlie Chan and Oom Pa Pa signals and a Sweet Emotion tease from Mike. Some recordings that circulate with this date are actually a compilation of performances from this show and the previous night.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu The jams in the first set, namely Reba, Mike's and Weekapaug, are dissonant and not very enjoyable, IMHO. Most of the rest of set I is pretty average, I think, although the Hydrogen is a bit spotty. The second set picks up it's game a little bit, on the strength of a pretty good Magilla, a YEM that rips pretty good for a while, and a Whipping Post encore which takes an interesting detour to start the second jam. The Stash, however, is really messy. I was thinking two stars after the Stash, but the YEM and Whipping Post I think do enough to nudge this back to three stars, if just barely.

thelot Another beautiful audience recording available for Night 2.

Trey dedicates the first song of the evening to Dave. They get right into it with a Reba opener. A well played yet standard version. Nice versions of Foam and Esther. Rippin’ ‘paug with a spunky Mike intro. Eliza provided a nice cool down before rockin’ La Grange set closer.

Golgi>Magilla pair nicely to open Set 2. Stash was flawless, as is the Forbin>Mockingbird that follows. Rock solid YEM all the way through. The vocals on the Highway to Hell set closer sound a bit strained. The Whipping Post encore has a really nice short but sweet second jam. The band walked offstage without saying their typical goodnight monologue. Both nights of Somerville are absolutely flawless. The audio is top notch as well for both nights. Thanks again to John Redmond for getting it done!
