Its been near 12 and a half years later . . . and I still listen to this show for the great lead off into a classic, gritty Phil's Farm and the intimacy of the venue. The Witz End was a small bar/supper club in the middle of nowhere that couldn't fit more than 75 people, tops. The show was the day AFTER the famed "Steve Bartman" game, and prior to the show a group of us UW-Pointers went early for pre-show beers, and were fortunate enough to imbibe and visit with the band and watch the Cubs playoff game. They were not happy about the previous day's Bartman game, and went into the show even more downtrodden due to a Cubs Game 7 loss immediately before the show began. Yet, a fantastic and intimate show in a great, classic Wisconsin atmosphere. Sadly, the Witz End later burned to the ground.
