The Holy Gasp - The Man Ain't Groovy [sitaricon version]

You can't fault Long Winter for being ambitious and for wanting to close out the season by cramming in as much music and art into the Great Hall as possible, but their plan to close the year out with a two-night stand didn't entirely pay off. Giving patrons the choice of two nights (and holding them at the end of Spring Break) seemed to especially cut into the younger crowd and both nights (especially Friday) lacked that "about to burst" feeling that makes LW unique. But even if the crowd was at less than maximum strength, there was no certainly no lack of music spread throughout the building.

"We don't usually sound like this. At all. It's kind of fun to have opportunities to play strange covers of your own music rearranged for instruments that none of us really play. So thanks for giving us a chance to wig out and get groovy."
