Boxing Jaws - Round 1
Jawbox was in top form from the git go. Every moment was to savor(y). They banged out 24 songs in a span of less than an hour and a half. This was my first time ever seeing Jawbox, and I'm glad I went both nights cause they changed up the set a bit. The set started with their first song from the self-titled record, "Mirrorful" and one of the highlights were "Green Glass," since the Life and Times covered it a few years ago on the Jawbox tribute album, "Until the Shaking Stops." The band played my favorite tune on both nights, which was "Iodine" from the self-titled record and to hear it live finally was awesome. It was great to hear a variety from their repertoire and the first night left me wanting to hear more songs. With such a wide breadth of material it was a great show nonetheless.
NOTE: I compared both shows this afternoon and noticed that this one is a little less bright than Round #2. I mastered both nights the same way, but I think there was a different soundboard person than the night after, thus the shows do not sound exactly alike.
