Northcoast 2010 was not good.

This was brutal. If not for the droogz, I woulda hated it.

Also feel like a lot of those Kzoo shows we're not great. '10, '11 especially come to mind.

Totally agree. Pretty pedestrian.

03.12.2017 Terrapin Crossroads, San Rafael, CA, USA
Set 1: October Rain > Higgins, Rosanna > Prowler, Similar Skin > The Triple Wide > Similar Skin, No Diablo[1], The Weight Around[1], 40's Theme

Set 2: In The Kitchen > Utopian Fir > Immigrant Song[2] > Utopian Fir[3] > Making Flippy Floppy, Tribute to the Spinal Shaft > Conduit > Make It Right

Encore: Divisions

Yeah this one was horribly disappointing.  But I took two first timers and they loved it.

Someone mentioned the Covington show from 2010 but I enjoyed that one except for the security fiasco to get inside.

lol idk if the Taft Ď19 mention is just funny or actually impressive. If thats even close to the worst show(s) youve ever seen then youve seen some fire shows

Quantity of improv does not equal quality.  Bunch of aimless dribble and it seemed they couldn't catch their stride in nearly every jam.  It's definitely not a worst show ever but it was a bizarre stream for me too.  Plus so many repeats of the same bullshit new material they've been playing into the ground the last few months.

I liked the jams for the most part. Philís got a little rough but Kitchen Speak Up and Attachments were all good.

Ill agree that N2 was certainly weak with Draconian being the only standout. Which i feel like that Draconian is getting slept on and it totally should not. It doesnt go very far but when the snare comes in and they get locked, its fiya.

N1 had Kitchen, Speak Up and Triple Wide as definitely noteworthy and the Attachments is damn near required listening

8/7/14 Burlington was a rough one. Also seem to remember the 2015 PacNW run not being too memorable. There are very few things worse than catching a standard Fir.

But the real answer is probably 10/31/14. 1/21/18 gets an honorable mention as well.

Im not a buy the pack type.. more of the bum a cig type which is arguably worse.

UMFree, I'm talking more specifically about N1 Taft lulz.  I thought N2 was better but not great by any means.

06/20/2015 at Jones Beach in Long Island for me. One set show that was delayed about 45 minutes due to rain. Just felt like things could never really get off the ground. Theres a Robot World in there with cig cables in it, but at that point I was pretty tired of hearing that lyrical.

Bland, short, forgettable.

I've looked through my show list, and it's difficult for me to pick out an obvious worst one (though at least one show I attended has been mentioned in this thread).  From a music standpoint it's hard to think of one that's outstandingly terrible.  The ones I think the worst of are generally shows where there was some other issue, like the late start and no A/C at 9/24/15.

I forgot about that, that experience was miserable as fuck. One of the most physically uncomfortable shows I've ever been to, it was so hot and sweaty. Also pretty interesting since it started so late but we still got a full show out of it. I ended up walking back to the hotel across a bridge in the pouring rain. Thanks for reminding me of that unique experience, I think about 9/26/15 a lot but the memory of 9/24/15 escaped me

gatroe and I were standing behind Waful and accidentally peeped at the setlist for the 2nd set during setbreak. That set looked really awesome on paper, and was horribly disappointing in execution

Considering the length of that set it wasn't too bad. Decent little Puppet and Ringo in there.

Covington improv was scarce and super lackluster. Add that to it being one of the most crowded shows Iíve ever been to, you literally couldnít move. Found a sliver of a spot by the soundboard and couldnít even see the stage.

Agreed. For an opening set in front of a WSP crowd, this wasnít bad at all. Could have been a lot worse.

Theyre okay. Actually the only jam in there that I think had potential was that little 3 min AIT jam. All my other contenders have at least 1 thing that I go back and listen to on a semi-regular basis. This is the only one I truly pass over every time I see it in my list.

10/6/18 is probably the worst I've seen.  Just went through my ATU list and there are some super underwhelming shows in there but I don't think anything is as bad as that one.
