I went to the Cats Cradle show with a friend. I had hoped to maybe meet J at one point before or after the show but never thought I would get such a quick opportunity. Me and my friend were sitting down next to a few people and the whole while I was telling him that the guy over there kinda looked like j but i wasnt really sure because I hadnt seen what he looked like in a while. Anyways finally someone came up and said hi j and we were in shock. We got up kinda embarassed and said hello and what happened, we were really nervouse talking to him mostly because he was so reserved and shy acting himself. But he was cool and signed my martin and me booklet and my friends spin magazine "j mascis is god" cover. finally the show came. the opening bands were alright but the anticipation for j was too much to really get too into them. the set was greaT AS mentioned and the one new song played was good. he played solos on what else is new, ammaring, get me, and alone. they were really long and just plain amazing. it was awesome how he played em all acoustic and then hit the fuzz or the pedals and jammed. one song for the encore was a little dissapointing but the fact that he played 20 songs more than made up for it. we saw his setlist though and he had more written on it that he didnt play for some reason. we got to get pictures with him after the show and to tell him that he is amazing and he said cool thanks in an almost inaudible voice. i hope i get another opportunity to see him live
