# - Loud PA problems in each of these songs
* - Trey forgets some of the guitar parts, aborted after a particularly bad PA glitch.
** - aborted due to PA problems. Set I ends early (27 min) so the crew
can work on the PA. Trey promises a long second set, right up to the curfew.
*** - aborted due to PA problems. Trey asks the road crew to turn the monitors around to face the audience and just
use them a PA, without the mains. While they are working,
there is a joke session. Trey, then Mike, then Fish each tell a
joke, Trey asks Fish to tell the Prison Joke but (un?)fortunately the
PA is set up and Trey says "Lets try this one again"
before Mike's Song starts. During Mike's Song, the road crew fixes
the monitors [parts of the PA were still working]
Thanks to Juliun Mohr for the setlist; and to David Paisley, Marco Walsh and Mikey Perrott for filling in the details.
