This was such a great performance and everyone played exceptionally well (especially during the second set). Unfortunately, I don't think my
recording turned out as good as the one I made of the show at this same venue on May 6th because I was standing closer to the stage.

I ended up closer to the stage because a few minutes after doors opened, a man and woman came and blocked my view. They eventually moved behind
me where the rest of their friends ended up, so I moved forward. You can hear the woman talking in the first two songs, so I was glad I got in
front of them. Unfortunately, there were more horrors to behold after a drunk woman and her girlfriend made their way to the front of the stage.
You can begin to hear the drunk get more annoying after "Tulsa Yesterday" with her injured bird cry (this cry makes a return appearance at the end
of "Got Love If You Want It"). The two of them would tickle and wrestle with one another on the steps leading to the stage (the giggling in "Star
Or Stone" is the girlfriend), try to balance beer bottles on their heads, and then have a sword fight with their beer bottles (which can be heard
in "Got Love If You Want It"). Then the drunk stood on the steps and jumped up and down, making the woman to my left fear that the drunk was going
to fall back onto her. Then the drunk did start falling over: first onto the poor woman who was sitting on the steps in front of me; then onto me.
It only got worse in "Rosalee" when that woman sitting on the steps in front of me was taking pics and the drunk grabbed her expensive camera. They
had an altercation and you can hear me move around during the early part of that argument (sorry). Then the drunk eyeballed me and started saying
"I was joking" to me a couple times. The joke is that during the set break, the woman to my left told me that the drunk had revealed she had no
idea who Chris Robinson was.

I also have to mention that the woman who sat on the steps in front of me can be heard talking to me at the beginning of "Got Love If You Want It"
and briefly at the very beginning of set two. She was really nice and took the brunt of the drunk's abuses, so please forgive her.

The second set has no problems other than background audience noise and someone near me who lightly clapped along a few times from "If Your Wheel
Don't Roll" through "Vibration & Light Suite."

I amplified this a little bit, but did nothing else to the recording.
