well, the show started off with a solo performance by our own jim "the 
pooper" (i don't know where this came from;) cooper. jim writes some 
really good heartfelt songs, and really seems to get into his songs. he 
played for about a half an hour or less to a seemingly appreciative 
audience....no one was talking. fine show:)
then there was, well, the tim robbins experience. i don't think it was 
actually as good as the show i once saw at the khyber....they seemed more 
rehearsed this time, and i didn't like that so much. some of thier songs 
like "countdown to the grammys" and "6 figure satallite" weren't quite as 
funny reworked. mind you, "the pros and cons of living on the edge" and 
"ixnay on the ezpray" were quite good! it *was* a good show, but 
honestly, not as rough-edged as i'd hoped it would be.
next up were sloan net's own state "chumps"...oops..."champs";) they put 
on a really good show....i wonder if they think so, seeing as some past 
shows haven't gone quite so well. it was a tight set...and it was nice to 
see a few older songs played like "gaited dancer", and i still think my 
favorite was "the stately elms". my question is though, is jon playing 
bass only now?
hmmm....okay, i guess that's it. i wanna go see the washed up pistols now!
