  19. kayatosh Says:

    too much partying. never put your feet up. in and out of focus, grouchtour turned elastic.

  20. kayatosh Says:

    carini jam was $$+. sand was its typical dank self. and i heard some of roses. then it all got fuzzy. heard none of sneakin and ghost.

  21. Lycanthropist Says:

    well that should help ease concerns regarding the fourth quarter lull.

    I definitely enjoyed the back half of that more than the top.

    Will revist the whole set tomorrow for sure

    Hot jams in LUALMO and Stash and Psycho Killer Tube

  22. halcyon Says:
