Didn't think I'd have this much to say about a virtual event but here I am...

It may seem like last year's set at first, the setlist opens up with a pretty acoustic version of "Xayah", but a great majority of the setlist fists you in the dick with its walls of droning, sludgy guitar noise and distorted vocal effects. The sparse nature of the recording in conjunction with the glitchy visuals leads to these raw renditions of "Are You Having Fun Yet?", "Skydiving in the City" and "Mister Whisper" to be almost as menacing as the album recordings they were based on! There's still some calm after this storm, though, as "J. Frusciante" and "Closure" receive the acoustic treatment. The latter track especially is a fantastic rendition! It almost felt like I was listening to "Closure" for the first time again, moving me to tears, and the falsettos at the end are just the icing on the cake! Just a fantastic, raw performance all around!
