Chicago: Metro July 2003, Riviera Nov 2003, UIC Forum April 2004, Riv April 2005. Some of the best shows ever
I was at all of those as well (only first night of the riv 2 nighter in 05, had to give away tickets for another commitment still regret that), seeing them then was life changing. And every one of those had something unique. I saw them in 02' opening for the peppers in wisconsin, so I was able to see them perform with Jeremy (SUCH a difference), the 03' metro show was one where they did deloused beginning to end, the riv show a few months later they had started doing the super extended Roulette, Drunkship, Cicatriz & Veil Jams, and I'm fairly certain that was also the first leg they did with Adrian & Marcel. I got to meet Cedric & Jon @ the UIC pavillion opening for APC, seeing them perform the Frances material in 05' was like the heroin of seeing them live. @ the aragon ballroom in 06' was the first time they ever played rapidfire/goliath (they introduced it saying something like; "We wrote this last time we were here, thought it would make sense to play it for you first)... I'll shut up now
goddamn i love all cassandra geminis live. i really think i have a problem. i think about all the shows we dont have recorded and to think of all the different jams we dont have preserved. it breaks my heart. but damn having approx. 35 cassandra geminis that are all different lyrically and musically from "you'll wear the widows weeds" and onwards is fucking crazy. i used to think cicatriz was their best live (its still pretty damn close), but in my opinion cassandra takes the cake.
