I have always loved this EP- one of my favorite recordings from that early era of Jacket ( 1999-2004). I was digging around on the internet and found an article about the release from 2004.

The album cover always said this show was a Halloween party for the band's friend, Gordon in Braintree, MA at the Startime Pavilion.

It turns out that is completely false, and the recording is actually from a few shows in TX, from Oct, 2003.

For anyone who may have missed it 14 years ago- here's an entertaining interview with Jim about the " mythical" show.

Awesome read!  I fell pretty dumb  for not knowing Citsuoca was acoustic spelled backwards!!!

Of course, it also took me a few years, and a tipoff from a friend that Magheetah was about jim and his guitar!

:grin:  haha, glad you guys enjoyed it-I always believed that this show actually took place in Braintree, MA- turns out Jim just liked the name of the town.

Never been to Braintree, so I'd pick AC.  But if I can't go to a fictional city, then definitely The Fillmore for Okonokos.

Awesome question...  I'd say Okonokos because I love the Fillmore and I've been to lots of shows in Texas already.  If there really was a magical night in Braintree, and I had a #1 pencil costume, this would be a very different answer.
5/24/2003, and every damn time possible since!

Fictional MMJ show, but a real place. 2 US presidents were born there.
