Yeah, I was going to mention them, but I missed their show when they were 
town so I don't know for sure how it comes off in the performance. A friend
of mine had the impression that they had things pretty rigidly sequenced to
their music. That's probably fine for their style, but I wonder about the
possiblities of using broadcasting equipment like they do for a more
improvised approach. Actually, EBN might be doing more of this by now, I
haven't checked up on them in a while. It seemed like they were very
interested in the idea when I read an interview a couple years ago.
