Recording notes:
This is a liberated bootleg from Japan, most likely a DAT source. The sound quality is excellent and
ranks amongst the best TMV audience recordings. All the instruments are very clear and the sound
comes through well.


Show notes:
Coming off a little break after the October and November '03 tours, The Mars Volta come out hard
and fast in this show. With the setlist being the same as previous tours, the tight but loose playing
style is still in effect. Cedric's voice is in great shape, but the ear grabber is the amazing rhythm section
of Juan A and Jon Theodore playing off each other very well. The jam in Take The Veil also takes some odd
and unique turns but comes out well in the end.

Once again Cedric uses the Conjugal Burns lyrics during Eriatarka (4:00). You can also hear Omar play fragments
of Day of the Baphomets during the pre-Cicatriz freakout.
