ProfJibboo A lost gem of 2000, most notable for four songs.

Least influential of the four was Oh Kee Pa. It was the only time Oh Kee Pa showed up in 2000 after only appearing once in 1999. It was also its last appearance of 1.0.

But the Suzy that Oh Kee Pa lead in to was sublime and, IMHO, the best Suzy ever played. After a standard, but intense version, the band brought the song to an end. But after they hit that final chord and held it a few seconds, the band launched into a good 10-or-so-minute easy-to-dance-and-groove to jam. It maintained an upbeat tempo and rhythm throughout.

The second set opened with Drowned, a song that has become very infrequent in 2011 and 2012, which is a shame because, frankly, its awesome. This one - clocking in at around 30 minutes - is a masterpiece. But its a masterpiece driven by Fish, Mike and Page. In fact, Fish was just awesome throughout this entire show.

After the 30 minute masterpiece, they > into Crosseyed and Painless, which is also jammed out for a good 10 minutes. Crosseyed had been played less than 10 times at that point and you can really hear a huge difference in how it sounds when they play it now. If you are a fan of spacy jams, this one is for you. Not so great to dance to in the moment, but to just sit back and listen to now is amazing.

And after Drowned > jam > Crosseyed > jam, they > into Dog Faced Boy as a nice cap to 45 minutes of incredible jamming.

Great show. Highly recommended.
