        I heartily echo that sentiment. One of the best live shows I've
seen this year. I'm a big Battles fan. 

        Live all three guitarists loop extensively. I seem to recall
two EDP's and a DL-4 at least, and a laptop or two as well.

         If you dig Battles, and if you haven't heard the last couple
Don Caballero albums (particular American Don), run to the record store 
(Ian Williams was also in Don Cab).
