Thanks for the welcome Sometime to Return!!! Although, I do believe they should keep "All Is Well" in the setlist. It's been my favorite since the album came out along with "Bus Named Desire." At least we agree on those other songs! :)

As for the nostalgia thing, I know these Ribfests are set up & based on nostalgia, but I've always enjoyed it when bands take chances to play new songs that people don't know (I've also seen Joan Jett do it a couple of years ago). Concerts are one of the best forms of advertisement/promotion, & it shows commitment to a project you've spent many hours working on, in most cases. Internet is one way to do it, but now literally everyone with computer knowledge is flooding the net with rough videos or very rough demos of their stuff. With barely any radio/video play these days, most people barely remember bands like Soul Asylum until they find out "Oh, (insert band) is playing Ribfest. I love (insert hit song)". Ideally, Ribfests are a great way to bring people in who may have forgotten about you, which is where Phil is correct on the nostalgia factor. I've been fortunate to be with people they've won over based just on that night's shows alone (with a little help from Tommy!), & it's been extremely cool to see that. That's why I had a little problem with the review just concentrating on the nostalgia bit & knocking them for trying to avoid that. Now, if Soul Asylum decides to drop everything from The Silver Lining & never release something new, then the writer may be on to something.

Thanks for sharing, mr. clammers. They came out great! Is it just me or is that a Star of David on the chain Dan's wearing (see second Dan pic in your album)?
