****This tape is by no means perfect....I never originally seeded it because it has FM reception flaws and mild distortion at
points. I was wearing the DAT and radio in my pack top with headphones in the middle of the crowd.
It is being seeded due to a large volume of requests for the FM source for this show, and we haven't seen an alternative surface yet.
I'm not letting this out as any definitive tape...people just told me they wanted it, and I wanted to make them happy. If someone has a
better FM, please let it out until the band releases something definitive. - DS

01. Ambient Jam

* "By request, for a little boy named Sam."

** Third verse was about "The Garden of Infinite Pleasantries,"
instead of the normal verse about Memphis; with "Sneakin'
Sally" teases.

^ Jam out of which sounded very much like "Tweezer Reprise."

^^ With glowstick war.

+ After Tweezer Reprise, Trey explained that the band wanted to
do something to combine ideas from The Clifford Ball and The
Great Went, going into detail about the band/fan artwork from
last year, and announced that the band would do a free-form
ambient jam (lyric-less; nearly an hour long; "in the Brian
Eno style of ambient music"), surrounded by candles that were
made by the audience throughout the day. There were no other
lights used during the jam (the band used only the light from
the candles), which Trey explained is similar to the idea of
what happens during a glow-stick war, with the light for the
band coming from the fans. Because candles were placed througout
the stage, Trey explained that they were in fact playing in a
"temple of fire" (as advertisements for summer tour shows had
announced). After finishing the jam, the band picked up tiki
torches, lit them using the candles, and lit a small stone (?)
temple (which was left burning overnight and throughout the
band's performance on Sunday).
