There was a low hum throughout the show and unfortunately it comes through on the recording. It's most noticable between songs and other quiet spots.
The hum got really bad during The Field. Scott Allshouse pulled a wire from the back of John Rider's equipment stack which improved things. X asked, "Did you guys hear that? ha! Did we ever! It was much worse in the room than on the recording.
Mark and Scott Allshouse were both playing on borrowed equipment. Due to the co-billing with Reid Genaur and the really tough setup at BB King's for loading in and out, it was much easier this way. Mark played on Nate Wilson's rig. There was a B3, a clavinet, and an electric piano (I can't recall what it was). The "leslie" on the B3 was really evident.. Mark coaxed the best out of this gear, too.......
The crowd topped out at less than 200 people, most of whom didn't seem to have seen Max Creek before. Almost all of them were dancing hard from the Field until the end. All in all, a solid show and a great time for me.
