Don Caballero was a favorite of mine. Seeing them live as a 3 piece in 1999 blew me away. They played 7 american don songs (all new on this tour, before the album was recorded) and 3 other songs. They sound loose enough in the studio, but its really cool to see a band balancing the written parts with the inevitability of live guitar loops not quite matching up (not to mention having to be created and revised on the spot).

For whatever reason, the song "you drink a lot of coffee for a teenager" is way worse and a lot shorter on the official album. I think that was it, its the 2 minute song. It was known as "suck" or "that badge means you suck" and had an additional 2-3 minutes of music. Much better in those live renditions.

Damon che is a great drummer to watch play. From his awkward snare placement to gis intense painful expressions (not to mention often just wearing boxers)
