- This was the first jam since
we knew that Jerry's birthday, on August 1st, is
to be Eviction Day from our beloved studio. We
were determined to play hard and long while
sacrificing our hedonistic eating barrage. Well
needless to say, we sacrificed in a poor manner
by accepting deli ychhchh but we did play hard.
We played like we were never going to play again.
With real meaning. We kept tempos as strong as we
ever have. We played with meaning more so than
ever. Unfortunately, we never made it through a
tiny food break after the Deal. It's okay because
it was a very satisfying evening as we played as
well as ever. Menaker didn't like it.
- I have to give Kevin credit
for assembling a very powerful set. I've been
giving him shit for incoherent juxtaposition of
songs recently but he turned it around this week.
- We played the
Rooster like we weren't going to get to play
again. We are getting good at that song.

- The Liberty was great, almost
flawless with a great beat.
- Greatest Story was pretty well
done. Powerful and accurate.
- The Deal went down. What are
you going to do?
- There was no half time to
speak of. The food encompassed various sporadic
deli trips. Unorganized and unappetizing, we
preparing ourselves for the future.
- The weather was beautiful
- It was a comfortable spring
- We shall never write about
cold weather at Ganesvoort again.
