This is really cool on the couch, probably even more awesome at the show. Still pissed I missed the Biscuits Tron show.


They’ve brought the spooky a few times this run and it’s been fire.

I’m just here for set 2…


If Nugs could just either focus on the screen or the band that’d be sweet. The half and half fade ain’t it


Mad Max should be cool


This is quite good

Dig BB’s weird staccato riff in the a section


I think a set like this would be real cool, but I’d definitely want to be sitting


My expectations have been surpassed pretty quickly

Dumb question probably, but this is most likely precomposed jams right?

Nothing wrong with it

Just tuned in. This is pretty awesome.


Saw Jake throwing signs so probably half and half
