I will start with the obligatory "I'm the biggest GBV fan in the world" (there, I said it), BUT something about this show just doesn't sit right. Let me explain, I purchase the DVD at a large chain store with a gift card (the only thing that would drive me to visit one of those dumps). Anyway, I noticed that this DVD and its CD soundtrack where the only Pollard product in the bins. This made me uneasy. As a fan, I want to see at least one classic GBV "studio" record as an alternate to a live set. Give the casual listener a chance to hear the band in a flattering light, you know, where the songs are given their just desserts, because, let's face it, they aren't going to find it here.

I'm just going to come straight out and say it, 2nd guitarist Nate Farley took this once in a lifetime opportunity to document the grandeur of GBV and turned it into a painful drunken wedding video. My stomach turned knots as song after song on the KILLER set list was butchered by Farley's drunkenly incompetent performance. He manages to make a jerk of himself the entire show. Can someone say "intervention". Anyway, it's depressing to watch. The rest of the band is in perfect form and Farley, a glamorized amp-pusher, ruins the show. Add to this the odd decision by the sound engineer to mix Farley's guitar above Doug Gillard's (the sober lead guitarist who's is actually playing the same song as the rest of the band). Nate Farley, your name is MUD. This video cements the assumption I've had for a while that Pollard shut the band down because he couldn't think of a more painless way to fire close friend Farley.

And look, Pollard's not doing so hot either. He flubs the first few lines from "I Am a Scientist". WTF? How can he flub a song that's literally encoded into his DNA?

I had high hopes for this video; I love GBV and live in Austin, Texas. Good set list; face it, to include all their best songs would require a 4-hour video, so you don't get "Weed King" or "Official Ironman Rally Song" or a dozen others I could list off the top of my head in under a minute. Nate Farley is stumbling drunk by the end and actually crashes off the stage for most of "Fair Touching" leaving Doug Gillard to fill in, as much as possible, both guitar parts. But, this is likely not much different than most of their shows were, off-camera. It would have been nice to see them give their best performance on such a high-profile rock showcase television show, However; this didn't happen; kind of a shame.

I would describe myself as a moderately enthusiastic GBV fan. I really like some of their studio stuff, but this 2-disc live CD really blew my mind because it was so truly awful. Only good thing was the playlist. The sound was atrocious; the introductions were annoyingly self celebratory, when there was no rationale for celebration. considering the poor performjance, especially regarding the (attempted) vocal harmonies.

This is one of the greatest live dvd shows ever! Every GBV fan will appreciate this performance. Even though it is shorter than a standard GBV show all the qualities that make them one of the greatest bands of all time are there. Pollard is hillarious while Nate Farley keeps the Spinal Tap dream alive.
