* - New song, first time played
** - New song, first time played; from Jesse Jarnow: "In the first set
there was an untitled instrumental. Trey said that whomever posted
the setlist first got to name it. In deference to aLi's misreading
of the word "instrumental" on my setlist, we hereby request that
the tune be named "Minestrone"."
*** - Trey talked about reading on Sonicnet about his show at Higher
Ground and how they had allegedly played "Voodoo Child" during
the electric set at the show, when in fact they hadn't (perhaps
"Ooh Child" was mistaken for "Voodoo Child"?), and talked about
how the unknown songs would frustrate fans online. He then
introduced the next song as being "Voodoo Child (acoustic)"
and played "Brian & Robert"

"Melody"; first time played
# - also first played at the Eight Foot Flourescent Tubes
## - previously listed as "Mid-Tempo Instrumental"
### - Jimi Hendrix cover, from the album Electric Ladyland; first time
played ... [ Note: more information on whether this was "Voodoo
Chile" or "Voodoo Child (slight return)" would be greatly
appreciated. For now, I'm going to go with "(slight return)" as
that seems to be the more often covered version. Thanks - Rob ]

Jesse for the email! Additional thanks go out to Jesse, Andrew Jay
Peerless, Bishop, Jonathan Van Schoick, Ross K. Lewandowski, Jamie Lutch,

> ^^^ - reports mention "Wind" or possibly "Bug" as well as "Winds of a
> Bug" ... [my guess is that it is "Wings of a Bug" - Rob ]

I recall Trey introducing it as "Windora Bug." Apparently Tony sang, "Is it a
wind? Or a bug? It's a Windora Bug."

Regardless, it's a fun little tune.

We got the rules down now...
