A small, intimate venue. A good crowd, Bob in great form. Some new songs, 
interesting, experimental DAT backing tracks, with drums, guitars, keyboards, 
and vocals all for Bob to play along with. Some fun stuff.

Just wanted to echo the comments on last night's show. Very good set and very 
promising new songs. I brought a friend who had never seen Bob before and he 
walked away very impressed. I can't wait to hear the finished products of the 
new material. Brasilia and the electric set were high points for me.

Hmmmm...I don't know. The Barracuda show was good, but it was not my
favorite Bob show by any means. Brasilia was great, but a song that big
needs a bigger sound system. I think I am just spoiled since every time I've
seen Bob he has played venues that better accommodate his sound. I thought
Barracuda was intimate, though you really had to be up front to enjoy the
show. The sound in the back was merely okay, and the tracks with DAT backing
were really a blur. It was almost as if Bob was hooked up through a boom
box. But the new material is good, and I think that he will really take an
interesting turn with some of his work. He was very enthusiastic about
taking time off and writing, and I think he has been writing a lot of
material. But for those who missed the Barracuda show, don't worry. It was
good, but not the defining performance of his career.
