Both these sets are awesome but I have to say I like Brooklyn's better, it has three of my all-time favorite Primus songs; Over the Electric Grapevine, Southbound Pachyderm and Pudding Time. This one does get points for having Frizzle Fry, Toys Go Winding Down, the Pressman, Bob and a better opener in To Defy the Laws of Tradition.

I only went to this show and after looking at the Brooklyn set I prefer this one since there's more songs that I haven't seen. I thought it was weird they played Seas of Cheese w/o Here Come the Bastards though.

Also since the first set looks "short", most of the songs had extended/jams to them.

I saw them in early '98 and they opened with Seas of Cheese and went into Coddingtown (another song with the stand-up bass), that was cool. But yeah, I listened to Seas of Cheese so many times that it feels natural to go into Here Come the Bastards after the title track.
