Review from the Nuttwork's archive 

Well it was awesome! Nuff said, but I'll try to elaborate... Blake and Sam had snagged a great location in the Fox Theatre for us to have an unobstructed and close view of the the Bone. As usual the sound in the fox was top notch. From the git-go Angelo started the crowd off right by jumping right in and swimming. Everything was clicking. Everyone was happy.

Review from the Nuttwork's archive 

Ok, here is my review of the show last night in Boulder, sorry if it is incoherent, as I am quite tired today! Samm and I got to the Fox last night at 8:30 or so and immediately had a pretty good feeling. Outside of the theatre all sorts of people were hanging around waiting for the first opening band to finish, draggin' their last cigs before going inside (no smoking in any restaurant/bar/th...


Review from the Nuttwork's archive 

Aaaahhhh, such a show! I swear, I was just grinning like a fool at everyone around me. And they smiled back (thanks guys!). Blake did a really good job of getting at the feeling of the show. We both thought that this was far and away the best crowd for a Bone show we've seen here. There were a lot of people, and they were really into it. Even Mr. Security Guard man who was next to me on the stairs was bopping his head along with One Planet People. :-)

The food analogy for the opening bands is an excellent one, Blake! I totally agree. As I told Blake and Dave, "They don't turn me on, but they work as openers." Got people moving around, excited, that kind of thing.

And then.......... Jah Jah. You all know that I love Angelo's poetry, I think most of us here on the list appreciate it to no end. But, we have all heard the horrible stories about people not getting into it, or worse, screaming for them to shut up and play. Well, the crowd really seemed to get into it this time, maybe even more so than when we saw the Maddvibe performance (of course, it was a more "exciting" venue, etc.). During the pauses, people would shout uh-huh (you know, sort of a secular amen) or just randomly throughout the theatre there would be pained cries of "Jah Jah" from people. Very cool...

It was really great to have Dave (good to see you again!! when are you coming up for falafel?) and Po (so nice to finally meet you!!) there. I mean, of course, during the actual set there wasn't a whole lot of conversation or anything, but knowing that you are with a group of people who are as into the show as you are is such a great feeling. There was a total sense of community over on our side of the stage. The guys behind us were totally into it, the security staff were totally cool, everything just worked...

I can't remember any other songs they played, I am pretty sure Blake got them all, but let's see if I have any highlights... Subliminal Fascism kicked my ass. And made me say, "Thank you sir may I have some more!" Angelo started Give it Up when he was standing on the railing in front of us (that we pulled him up on to - thumbs up to a motherfuckin workout! Wouldn't I have just felt like a shit if he fell?), the crowd just broke loose!. Obviously, I love Cholly, I always have. Angelo was joking around with girls in the audience: "You gettin' there, girl!" Much fun was had by all. There was this one chickie in a white dress, with a shawl tied around her waist (interesting character, to be sure) who kept jumping up on stage and flashing us all her panties. Right before Ma and Pa she was up on stage, being a general nuisance, but a thoroughly entertaining nuisance. Angelo asked her what she wanted, she said, "I want to sing with you." So the he asked her if she knew the words to Ma and Pa. She looked a little befuddled. "The chorus?" Blank stare. "This song is dedicated to your daughter. Your daughter." She didn't get it. He sort of shook his head and handed her the mic while he went to get his sax. The band strikes it up, and she starts singing, something, I don't know what, Bjork sounding over the music to Ma and Pa. Angelo, the rest of the band, and the audience all just sort of watched in amazement. Eventually, he just retrieved the mic, and the concert continued on its merry pace. Where'd You Get Those Pants was hot! Very fun, exciting. People were actually yelling out for it long before they played it. When one guy yelled in a quiet nanosecond, Angelo answered "You'll get it." The Suffering was just exquisite. Broke my heart (and, of course, moved my ass). AIDS and Armageddon (which I think is incredible on the album) is even better live. Fucking undeniable. Somebody on the list posted when they first heard the album that the music to this song makes you want to do it, and the lyrics make you not. That effect is even more intense live. Karma Tsunami sent the pit crazy. Kids going monkeyshit crazy! Excellent. I'm a Weed Plant was strangely sweet and beautiful. They did it coming right back from a break, and it was, well, really pretty. You could tell in the chorus that the melody and the rhythm were the same from Pants, but it was played so differently, I didn't feel like I was getting ripped off or anything.

Jeez! I've said so much and there is still so much to tell you all! Okay, the other important thing... When people were jumping up on stage, sure they were dancing, diving, what have you. But there were a lot of people that seemed to just want to pay tribute. The guy with the clown suit. His friend who took the kazoo up there, bowed, and left it for them. Another guy who jumped up, bowed to Angelo, shook hands, and headed back down. A lot of really intense emotional moments. I felt like the guys were finally getting some recognition. It was really beautiful. Almost religious (like a Southern Baptist church service without the food or the guilt).

Okay, okay, I have to work. But you guys just had to know!!!!

Don't you dare not go, if you get the opportunity!

Souljahs- Sorry it has taken so long to write this review of the Boulder show, but here goes. My bud Lou and I showed up to the Fox Theater around 10:15, just when Fishbone was getting ready to hit the Stage. I found Jah Dave up close to the front, and was Introduced to Sam and Blake. (Great to meet you guys!) I found some of my Old Zombiez compadres and it was good to see those cats too. ...
