All songs except the encore were originally debuted at the Wetlands; the encore pairing was an ode to a classic piece of Disco Biscuits music, the 12/29/98 Pygmy -> RLH and possibly the 1/30/97 Pygmy > RLH (both also from the Wetlands).

Subject: Definitely in my personal top 10
While this may not be the best show for someone who isn't familiar with the band, if you're already a fan, this is a great one to check out. Fantastic quality to boot.
Subject: BEST BISCO AVAILABLE
dribble > waves >< dribble is an awesome sequence for people just getting into the band who know Strobelights, but this version means so much more.
Then to the encore... pure insanity. This is an excellent taper, I ended up getting the soundboard, and listen to both about equally. For PT>RLH>PT>RLH I always listen to the taper. With each segue the crowd rages harder and harder.
Great songs, well played, great recording, MUST HAVE for anyone remotely interested in this band.
Subject: quite possibly best ever here...
Subject: B4 it all changed
anyhow...this will always be my last memory of NY pre 9-11(I came up for D.C. for this weekend) I remember coming back uptown on the subway after this show with a train full of kids as jacked up after the show as I was.....a couple weeks later wetlands was gone as well a lot lot more....
anyhow, great great memories of this show....and then of course there was the MUSIC
Subject: Strobelight and Martinis answer
Secondly, this is the story of Strobelights and Martinis. The style of Dribble jam present in this show was a rehearsed thing and used all throughout the Sept. '01 tour (as well as a couple shows in April '03). However, the particular jam from this show was cut up in the studio and remixed for Bisco Lives II as the track "Strobelights and Martinis". That song was then debuted live on 2/16/07 and incorporated into the band's reportoire.
Subject: SICK!!! but about stroblites and martinis
"I think for those of you who really like the mindless dribble here, should know or would like to know that there is a strobelights and martinis jam in the middle of mindless"
i think the segment in mindless was improvised at this show and it was such a great moment that it became known as "stroblites and martinis" and started being played at other shows. just like "king of the world" came from the "flab slab" jam on 5-6-99. can someone confirm this?
Subject: Very Nice
Subject: Say Hello to my Lil Friend...
From the outset and the Story opener it's evident that more than just another show lie in store. Story pushes the limits of sound and synergy and serves as a sonic precursor of things to come. Triumph is a fine choice to follow. While it may not live up to other more recent versions you will hear bare in mind it is one of the first ever played, and thus unique in that regard. Additionally, listen for the slight Story tease toward the end -- immediately followed by a serene streaming segue of which Haleakala Crater emerges. Very cool. Haleakala is rare and has beautiful lyrics so good stuff there. Kamole starts off smoking and then gets slightly psychedelic before settling back within its theme. Very solid version. Home Again is high energy and a great choice to end a very good 1st set.
Set 2 in any fair assessment obliterates nearly any other set ever played -- possibly by any band, ever. Once the Fiddler is rare and rages, but more then that it allows you to be caught off guard by what comes next. Mindless Dribble begins what is easily one of the most memorable song strains ever assembled by the Biscuits. DRIBBLE>WAVES>DRIBBLE>FLOES>HOUSEDOG knows no equal. Dribble is the sickest ever played and displays what I call the imminent evil jam (5 mins in). Roughly 18 mins in it becomes clear that a perverse inversion of Waves is next. Waves soars to all new heights before crashing back into Dribble. Jedi like jamming ensues characteristic only of 9/1/01. Listen for the first allusions of Floes around the fifteen minute mark. Floes is the best I've ever heard, is monstrously entertaining, and segues into Housedog with jaw dropping precision. The Housedog is utterly out of control easily dwarfing any other version I've heard.
The encore picks up right where set 2 leaves off -- super tight playing only overshadowed by extraordinary seging. Pygmye leads off, then into Run Like Hell. Run sprints out of the gate, back into the Pygmy Twilight briefly, then redefines raging one last time with the back end of Run.
In sum, raging redefined is a fine way to think of 9/1/01. I'll leave it at that.

Subject: happy birthday 9-1-01
After an unusually great Fiddler, the Biscuits begin a musical journey that ranks right up there with some of the best music I've heard. It's up there with Dead 5-11-72, moe. bonnaroo '02, Phish NYE 95, Panic NYE 99, Umphrey's 10-5-02, Kimock 9-6-01, etc. That may be saying a lot, but just listen to the Floes>House Dog for what may be the greatest Bisco jam ever. The Waves in between a Dribble sandwich that precedes it is epic too, but man, the Floes>HDPF is incredible. Brownstein was dropping major bombs all night. The encore is crazy too with a reprise of the peak in the Floes jam right before the final RLH crescendo. It's fitting that the last comment you hear from someone in the audience right before the recording ends is "Best show ever."
The sound quality is fantastic, as you can hear the audience but it's never distracting, and the clarity of the instruments is superb.
If you do nothing else today, download this show. No Biscuits collection is complete without it.
Subject: ....good ol wetlands
Subject: Beginning to End throwdown
set 2 is fantastic
What are you waiting for?
Subject: One of the best shows I've ever seen!
The Story of the World completely rages. The Kamaole Sands is excellent as well. Lots of energy.
Set 2 is one of the best sets this band has ever played (if not THE best). The jams between songs are simply amazing. Especially the Floes > House Dog. WOW! I'll never forget how crazy the Wetlands was when they were in the midst of that jam. I love this band!
Subject: Set 1 is weak...but the amazing second set more than makes up for it!
Subject: AWSOME SHOW
