This show is beyond my comprehension. It's perfect in my own personal way. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that but man it just hits me so hard.

It's the epitome of what my brain needs rock n roll to be.

I keep watching individual clips on YouTube and there has to be a better way. Does anyone have an mp3 download, full concert video or a f***in' time machine?!

Whoa that's cool.  I wish I saw them in '03.  That is a great video.  I'll have to watch it again soon.

Boom. Thank you, sir. The single videos were all I knew of.

Amazing. What a memory that must be. Everything about it is perfect.

Every comment Jim makes between songs, the fact he's not wearing shoes, all the hair, Quaid, Hallahan's drums in Steam Engine, Steam Engine, the way O Is The One That Is Real just blasts open, the lighting, the rest of the setlist, everything.

& it doesn't really seem like the crowd understands what they're witnessing.

What do you remember about that night?

My wife's flight was delayed so I was nervous we were gonna be late. I'd heard of them for a while but never checked them out because I thought it sounded like a ska band. Ha! I knew a few songs in they'd be one of my favorite bands. It was also loud as fuck but still sounded great, which is hard to find. My wife still blames that show for some hearing loss.

My main memory was never seeing Jim's face after the first chord. Just head banging and hair. 

2003 was a good year. I discovered MMJ, The Truckers and Lucero all in about 4 months.

Interesting. I discovered MMJ and the Truckers in 2009. Easily my 2 favorite 21st century bands.Between those 2 bands and variations of the members, I have seen about 40 shows the past 10 years. I actually have a hard copy of the Mercury Lounge show on DVD, sent to me by someone named in this thread.
