I was at the show last night also, but I have to say that I was a
little disappointed. While it's true that Jeremy did a great job of
laying down the funky beats and basslines, I can't understand why he
didn't perform any of his own material and instead, opted for covers

The word from the Beta Lounge was that he did a much more varied set
with more original material and I'm looking forward to hearing it
once it goes up in the archives.
