Soliday + Solotroff

Jason Soliday + Mark Solotroff
Tuesday November 21, 2006
Chicago, IL

This was kind of a rough night... There was very low audience turnout, the venue had a new PA with a few set-up glitches, and the overall feel of the show seemed like a dress rehearsal, or something else that was less than 100% ready. Something about Jason's and my set seemed missing, when compared to our show at Enemy in June, or even based upon our recent practice sessions. The sound seemed to lack a bit of the "punch" that we were used to, and certain elements went missing from the mix. That said, the recording of our 18-minute set was very satisfying to hear, and divorced from the not toally satisfying live experience, the MiniDisc holds great promise. Thanks to Blake, for setting up the show; thanks to Elastic, for hosting; and thanks to our friends who supported the night.
