Luckily, Impaler's Bill Lindsey caught a show at 1st Ave. in Minnesota and reminisces on how great a gig it was in his latest Vintage Concert Bill feature, also pretty much summing up Uber Rock's thoughts on a certain Mr. Lawless.....

WeabUP86We couldn't let Uberpalooza go unmentioned, especially when our fifth birthday party was everything we had hoped for and more, but how do you go about reviewing your own gig?!?
