80-min set in the pleasant late spring county fair envrionment. They
Might Be Giants was first act. Cracker took stage at 9:40.
David's voice was sorta shitty. He acknowledged a bad cold and told
crowd that the new album had been mixed earlier that day.
AIN'T IT STRANGE
SWEET THISTLE PIE
BEEN AROUND THE WORLD
I WANT EVERYTHING
GET OFF THIS
ONE FINE DAY
NOTES: New songs (Aint it Strange, One Fine Day) are terrific;
Slower tempo on SW. POTATO and LOW makes for good groove; Extended
break in GET OFF THIS is quite enjoyable; Brandy may be a problem:
the guys I went with could not stop drooling over her. I'm worried
that the rest of the band may be too ignored!
Also, hate-to-say-it, but I'm tired of seeing LJBlues all the time.

june 8 - fairfax, va
another good show even though i didnt really get into it till about 4 songs
in when they played lonesome johnny blues. david's voice sounded pretty good,
except for the slowed down part of get off this where he was barely
whispering, and in sweet potato he couldnt really get up with the flow of the
chorus, his voice seemed to be going out on him a little bit.
