A really good show, very well-balanced; loud songs are fresh and energetic, quiet numbers done with a light touch. Good sound, a solid A. Show opens with a little a-cappella "It's Halloween!" song, really corny and funny; they sound just like little kids getting ready to go trick-or-treating. James sings "Let's Compromise" (loud version). Unusual version of "From a Motel 6" with different guitar effects and slightly rollicking feel. "Autumn Sweater" is the "OK girl now let's see what you can do" version. "Big Day Coming" is the slow version, lovely. "Love Power" is hilarious as always.
