Just got back from the SoundGarden show here in Denver Total Fucking Godhead. The opened with Spoonman and the set included My Wave, Slaves and Bulldozers, Outshined, Bootcamp, Ty Cobb, Rusty Cage, Let Me Drown, Fell on Black Days,The Day I Tried To Live, Searching with my good eye closed, Pretty noose, Dusty, Burden in my hand, Never the machine forever, and Blow up the outside world. Chris preformed Black hole sun solo. They also played an incredible cover of Helter Skelter, that started very quite and came to a roaring conclusion. The also did a cover of the Stooges Search and Destroy. The closed with Jesus christ pose and round of feedback madness. Very cool show! Definitly a must see.

Well, I'm very disappointed to see only one review from the Denver show. Unfortunately, I saw this site almost exactly a year after I saw the show, so pardon me for the bluntness. From what I can remember, there weren't that many real garden fans there, as evident by the lack of reviews and tons of people moshing. I don't remember the set list, or anything really cool that happened, I just remember SG rocked. Chris' solo of Black Hole Sun was a refreshing twist, as was the vibrance of some of the earlier stuff. I was kind of disappointed that they didn't play Like Suicide or 4th of July, because they are two of my favorite songs on Superunknown. But, Spoonman was awesome, as was My Wave and The Day I Tried to Live. The best song in my opinion was Ty Cobb. They played it with so much enthusiasm and feeling, it was great. Anyway, I am sorry to submit this a year after the show, and after the heart-wrenching breakup, but anything for fellow Soundgarden fans.
