WEGO: June Enlighten Show!

Set 1 (not really recommended) 67 megs
Set 2 (fairly approachable!) 52 megs

I was listening to this one in a slightly different frame of mind the other night and I realized that this band is reeeeeallllly weird! Granted -- with two people missing for the first set, Woody singing from behind the counter, and the addition of a first-time orchestra-member for the second set -- this was perhaps an extra strange show, but still!

Nonetheless -- even without the usual full lineup -- Evan is scheduled to leave town for graduate school before the next show(what!?).  Therefore the second set here represents the culmination of a certain mini-era of the band ... So with a heavy heart, please enjoy!

The Orchestra for the evening was Woody Frank (occasional voice, and barista), Ian McKagan (guitar and voice), and Me Woods (charango, glockenspiel, trumpet, percussion, and voice), with the addition of Jesse Silvertrees (djembe and voice), and first-timer John Beezer (electric guitar), for the second set.

 I'd like to warn again here that Set 1 was exceptionally loose and lost all momentum several times. If I wasn't so swamped with more pressing projects, I'd edit it down to the good parts (which I estimate is about 15-min worth). If you *do* manage to listen all the way through Set 1, please post a note or two about what parts you thought were worthwhile, and save somebody else the trouble of what you just went through! ;))
