Just a quick note agreeing with the Antigone Rising sentiment I read on the

This band just doesn't cut the mustard either musically or in "uniqueness".
Amazing the number of younger (21 - 25) yr old women and men there to see
them however so they have some following. Just too much Female angst for me
to understand.

What was VERY cool however was the knot of three young (18 - 21) women, as
well as a different know of four young (18 - 21) men, in front and to the
right of me the entire BOC performance. (I was standing very close to the
stage).  Nice to see the next generation enjoying the boys as much as us 40+
yr olds!  (I know their ages because the venue allows all ages and marks the
"underage" with a big X on the top of the hand.)

Yea well since no one joined me for the CP show I thought I'd just mosey up

Would that be a yellowish finish. Perhaps what he plays on LdoM?  Fantastic
sound from that guitar.

I'm thinking due to a possibly impared state, that the headless and the
cheeseburger where one and the same.. and our fave bass player was playing a
headless the entire show as well.

Not nice LOL.  It's a good piece...

Very much done in an almost punk style.. much harder than on the studio.

But you can't see further back... lol
