Trey also breaks it down for the people on the ferris wheel to see if they notice. They didnt. *** Fishman sped it up and at the end the boys basically gave him a solo... "Bob Weaver ladies and gentlemen" @Jammed out.... first time done... amazing. @@ 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 freeform 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 lights used during the jam, the band using 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 around and througout the stage, Trey explained that they were in fact playing in a "temple of fire" as the advertisements for summer tour shows announced. After finishing the jam, the band picked up tiki torches, lit them using the candles on stage and lit a small stone (?) temple at the edge of the stage, which was left burning overnight and throughout the band's performance on Sunday Last Sanity 10/31/96 (139 shows) Thanks to Portland.Com for the constant updates.
