What a wild show last night. When we showed up, the disc players refused to cooperate after the first few songs, meaning we were flying blind and had to improvise, which kept us on our toes. As a result we ended up assembling a greatest hits show featuring some of our favorite cuts from previous shows. Coincidentally, we had actually intended on doing this exact thing on a later show, but hadn't really planned on doing it this soon or on the fly. Oh well, turned out fine and gave us an infinite amount of respect for the old school pioneers for whom this approach was de rigueur back in the day, no pre-designated playlist, just playing their favorite cuts. We had so much fun with this show, we might make it a quarterly thing and call it "wildcard" or something. Anyhow, as always, the complete playlist is posted after the jump.
