i have seen my share of the jesus lizard shows, and i can say that last night was the drunkest i have ever seen david yow. however, it was a fine line between beautiful and really sad. through out the show i tried to answer that question to myself. after the show i finally decided that it was beautiful, with hints of sadness. before they started even playing he was falling down, jumping into the crowd and broke the mic. he was totally sloppy drunk, but duane, david wm. sims, and jim were really tight. it was a very high energy show. it was amazing...i have seen my share of live shows and i would like to say that they are still "the best live band" today/ever. i mean that too.
