This show felt really good all the way through. We got to play at a campus venue for the first time and went for it full bore, with a webcast linkup courtesy Will Wood and his crew. It was also by far the longest set; we had two hours to work with and so threw in a bunch of new or previously unplayed stuff, like the instrumental jams in the middle of the set or the Neil Young tune at soundcheck. Bryn pulled out another Radiohead cover from his arsenal while the rest of us scattered, then we returned the favor as he scouted the mix from different angles which, according to everyone there, was excellent- great considering our short preparation and the cavernous room. Thanks to everyone who came to see, even if you were only there for a little while (or peering down from the balcony); my show comas make it difficult to properly thank everyone at the time, but we really do appreciate it. Thanks also to the Ucen Admin staff for helping us set up this show- we’d love to do it again.

Update 2/11/03: Sonya’s shots from the Ucen are on the photos page. Mp3 from the Ucen show is now available on the shows page. I saw the video this weekend and it looks good, so we will use it somewhere.
