    any of the shows I went to...and/or Hartford. Or wait for Memphis.

  • Hartford or Vancouver. I was at both shows, and they are two of the best I've ever attended!!

    Oklahoma City or Hartford.

    I have the Hartford bootleg. A friend of mine was there. It's incredible! The energy of the cloud was off the charts. Ed even commented : "This is not normal..."

    I have listened to a bunch... attended 5 of the shoes last fall... HARTFORD is the best boot...
    Leeds, Charlottesville are fun too but Hartford is the best. Try OKC if you want a boot with few mistakes but it has nowhere near the emotion as Hartford... Caught part of SD in Sirius and that one sounded really fun... Have Vancouver, Bklyn, Philly, Worcester, New Orleans (cool out of the ordinary setlist by Steve Gleason), Dallas, LA 1 and 2, Seattle... Hartford is it...

    I was alone and far away when I heard the band start playing!

  • I've really enjoyed the Spokane show. I didn't go to any shows so not biased because of that.

    Charlottesville, Leeds, and New Orleans (reminded me of a 98 tour show)

    unbiased opinion. I went to zero Lightning Bolt shows

    You can't go wrong with any of them. I have all the shows from the 13-14' tour and they are all flat out fantastic.

    Moline. Take away the fact that you have all of No Code album, it's still a great show! Some cool covers, great banter, a pretty nice Bee Girl (never was a fan until show), and an improv song just for Moline, etc.

    Vancouver is pretty damn good.
  • The greatness of the Hartford show comes across on the bootleg. I just got Moline with my download code, it's worth it for No Code alone. Was having a hard time picking between that and the Yield show in Milwaukee, but decided on Moline since they had some great Yield songs in that set too.
