Show Notes:
Where to begin the "leg 3" storyline?

Wisconsin is the land of cheese and porn and fireworks.

The venue was AWESOME, had the entire 250 seat balcony to myself, so the sound should be pretty damn good.

It's hard to quantify how much better they get after each show. Both Marc AND John last night were like men possessed. It was like Marc McCready was on stage right, he was jumpin, jerkin and dancing all night.

As for the setlist, I'm on the way to Bloomington in T-minus 2 hours...but Waitin' Guilty, Title Song...Another Roadside Tragedy...and a couple of FTP's, I believe (haven't checked the tour stats to confirm or deny this).

A hightlight for me was "Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye"...really, really dig John's vox on this, and with it being a "Chris-heavy" song, I was worried when I saw it on the setlist. Instead, halfway thru, it was like #Chriswho...

Speaking of "who", the person you SHOULD thank for this prompt turnaround is Dennis. He's taken the Energizer bunny to a Tesla Minotaur level. If you throw him a quick "Thanks Dennis", it doesn't hurt, and it's the right thing to do.

Just stone me...rocks are optional.

Friday the 13th is COMING UP!!!!
