Show Review: 610

Despite Mike Ness being under the weather the show on Friday night in Tempe, Arizona was fantastic. After opening with a very catchy instrumental, MIke faced his drummer and strummed out the opening chords to "So Far Away." Really good selection of tunes spanning the entire Social Distortion catalouge. I particularly liked "Making Believe," and the slowed down version of "Cold Feelings." The piano introduction to "Prison Bound" creates a crescendo that gives the song alot of movement. The new tracks sound awesome – so good I purchased the CD a few days ahead of the official release in the lobby. "Bakersfield" highlights just how good a guitar player Mike really is – something he does not get enough credit for in my opinion. Great show!
