After a couple of songs, Neil protested that he wasn't really qualified
on drums. The others responded with some laudatory words, and launched
into Wipeout. Heh. Neil was fine back there, at least until "All You
Need Is Love," which turned out to be a tad more complicated than he'd

Still, another memorable night at Largo. Viva Sea-Tac had a different
ending this time, which sounded like a lot of ad-libbing. Devil Mask
was a shocker, as was Sleeping Knights. When Robyn, Grant, and Jon get
going on their rock songs, it's really something special; I wish they
did more of Robyn's tunes like that than just the few that concluded the
first set.

One more thing: Robyn looked pretty worn out most of the night, and
seemed to drink a lot. It looked like he had an awful lot of wine on
stage (for that matter, I counted four Guinnesses consumed by Jon while
performing). After the show, some Fegs waited around for a chance to
talk to him or get autographs, and were told he wouldn't be coming out;
he was too exhausted.

'til next time,
- Chris
