A weird one. Sound problems and a fight broke out near the beginning of the show. Almost ended the night early. The band kept going but not too happily. Those of us not kicked out enjoyed the rest of the show. I have cut out the spot with the worst sound problems as it had no bearing on the show. Watch out for the scream with a minute to go
