    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 entire evening.

    Ostensibly, he was here to promote ElectricLoveFunk - a terrific
    album that everyone should pick up when it's released. I was hoping
    to hear live renditions of some of the tracks, but he chose to
    freestyle instead.

    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.
