    Notes: Pardon my English but, "Mah-nish ta-na ha-li-la ha-zeh shebi-col ha-leigh-lote." Penny Jones, Recycling Educational Specialist for the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority, that's what. If you think Deadstein contained a bunch of freaks, you haven't met Penny Jones. She came into our little hideout beneath stately Wayne Manor and synergistically elevated the freaky milieu to a new and different level. I think it made for a very fun time for all except maybe the Freakboy himself who may have been out freaked. By the end of the night, Freakboy did finally get some of his Freak Juice in the form of a Wheel, Sunshine Daydream and US Blues. I've worked closely with Penny for almost 10 years now, probably know her better than I know any Deadsteiner and I tell you, if she was in Deadstein she'd be the freakiest one there.

    It's funny, Penny and I got arrived at the studio, got out of the car and Riley was standing there. I introduce the two of them, and Penny is the inquisitive type, and she asks Riley his last name. From then on I knew she would get a true taste of Deadstein. Wouldn't and couldn't have it any other way. The rest made for a pretty funny night. Imagining yourself through Penny's perspective. It would be like Deadstein participating in a meeting to select a Rector for an Episcopalian Church. Penny still does not believe she actually experienced the whole thing. The air is thick and mucky down by the Meat Packing District.

    First Set:

    The music was still overly loud, full and obnoxious and had no indication that it may be getting better. Good Times Roll was Hershey all the way, and we bullied through a Stranger culminating in the typically great ending jam. Most of the music of the first set is tough to recall, it was indistinguishable from song to song, but how bad can it be? Still couldn't think of anywhere else I'd rather be. Can't think of any highlights.

    Second Set:

    The second set was much more at ease than the first set, and much nicer. If you look at the songs of the first set, you will notice that with the exception of She Belongs to Me, the is little sweet, happy or nice music. The second set is different, it's filled with kinder, gentler sentiments.The Crazy Fingers has some sweetness to it that felt good. The US blues nicely tied whole night into a package and readying ourselves for the long trek home.
