They were great but they made the mistake of incorporating our town name into the lyrics, but dip shits like me get impressed that they can read our town off the back of a mic stand. On a dark Arizona highway... wooh that's us dude. So happy. But then they keep milking it. Cool Scottsdale wind in our hair. That's still us dude. My friend lives in Scottsdale. Warm Sun Devil stadium... Alright we get it. Knock it off!

Spade is relaxed, confident, and very funny here. He balances his hateful-little-bastard persona with nice amounts of self-deprecation; coming up with a classic set. His subject matter(gay rock bands, "spanktro-vision", dirtball drug-dealers,etc.) isn't particularly important- but Spade makes it all work. I really liked his bit about rock bands talking to the audience- telling Michael Stipe to "sing Radio Free Europe and beat it!!", when Stipe just wants to whine about how horrible his rich life is. "Just sing the god-damned songs, buddy!!!!". This set is almost 10 years old-and none of the material is dated. Hate him or really hate him; Spade is a funny dude.
