Guelah Papyrus included a Simpsons signal before the Secret Language Instructions. The Instructions included a Call to the Post tease from Page and introductions of the Simpsons and Random Note signals. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. The Bowie intro contained Maze teases from Mike. The YEM vocal jam was based on How Many More Times (Led Zeppelin) and later contained Frankenstein and Jeopardy! teases. Trey teased the theme from Woody Woodpecker before The Squirming Coil.

Review by willet43

willet43 I actually kind of felt bad for the band at this show. The last time I saw them before this was in New Jersey for the H.O.R.D.E. Festival, and the mood was quite different. The Moon was essentially a bar with a short riser for a stage. The Moon was not full that night, and you could get a beer at the bar and walk within ten feet of of the stage. I think the guys could sense the vibe and the first set was super short. Not that they played poorly. The second set was probably a better time than one would have with just about any other band in at that time, but they clearly weren't in any big hurry to stick around. I think it is telling that they never played The Moon again.

Review by DollarBill

DollarBill This is the only show at the Moon. Seventeenth show of the tour and pretty average overall. Great recording and minimal sound problems tonight. Paul had to tweak Mike's sound as he and the kick drum were really boomy early on.

The recording I heard had most of Rift cut off, so pretty good opener I guess. Guelah contains the first Secret Language explanation of the year as they are breaking new ground again geographically. Guelah itself was pretty well played. Poor Heart was good and still has the little extra tag on the end of Page's solo. Maze was rocking, but they had a little off spot at the end. Fee had a rough intro, but was otherwise good. Sparkle was so fast by the end that they actually had a breakdown. A good Foam and Cavern make up for that. IDK brings out "the Friar, little Jon, Tubbs, Goodman" for a trombone solo. Bowie had a few rough spots in the composed section, but the jam was good. Not too bad of a first set, just average though.

Nice Jim to open the second set. This one was pretty dynamic in the middle. Ice was good, maybe a few spots here and there. Pen was standard for this tour. Tweezer was rocking, but not too adventurous. Unfortunately, pretty common for this tour, Trey pulled himself out of tune so, Glide suffers a bit. YEM was good and had a really funny vocal section where they tease multiple songs. They have been doing this lately. This is the first Oh Kee Pa of the year and it's well played. Llama was pretty standard and rocking. HYHU brings Fish back out for the HATEFUL band intros. Funny stuff here as they go into a fast Love You. It almost sounded like Fish was teasing Over the Rainbow for a second during his vacuum solo. Great banter about Fish's nick names too. Yay! Trey is going to tune before Coil! Pretty average Coil and Page solo tonight. The expected Tweeprise closes up another average set.

Everybody gets shushed for Amazing Grace, and then Trey thanks Paul for the sound reinforcement on it. Fire is rocking even though Trey flubs the lyrics a bit.

Not too bad overall, but also, no real stand outs tonight. I would also give this one about three and a half stars.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu If I could, I'd give this about 3 1/2 stars. I think the Tweezer is pretty good and the YEM is fairly smokin'. I also enjoyed the hateful introductions before Love You, and it's always nice to add yet another nickname for Fishman, although I don't think "Mr. Penis" stuck like some of the other ones. Guy Forget soundcheck is also fun. But I think I've got to go 3 stars for this as it is only a little above average, especially coming off of the legendary Roxy shows.
