– SHACK THOUGHTS – 20 YEARS AGO TODAY
Show starts with some loose playing with Band Intros, which is a little odd, before they slam into the start of Night Marchers — this tune is ROCKING the opening slot on this tour! Another Organ Intro gets a solid Jelly Belly going with ITAHTLMJ in its usual spot after the jelly, and I really love that tune over all the years — ’96 has a nice raw/broken sound to John’s keys.
Great run from Dracula > The Lover > Lonely Avenue, and by the time we hit that avenue the band has taken us through some great stuff with Dracula starting out nice and slow before moving over to The Lover nicely, and then we turn down the avenue. Macha > Chinoiserie work well together, and then some more classic ’96 closes out the show.
enjoy the grooves,
