    "This show is a great example of the Band’s transitional phase towards techno cheese trance. With a new musical focus "

    "not to dis the next night, but this show is happening...very exploritory, and adventuress...the crowds in Philly are always juiced, you can feel the energy during the first set, and it builds all night...if you listen closely you can hear the crowd cheering for the Flyers...i play this show more than any other on my stereo..."

    "This was my second show. I am not a big fan, but I liked them enough to check them out. I really enjoyed the first set. They hit alot of songs I liked and it was a real long first set. It was not the most polished performance I ever heard, but a very spirited one. I really dug it. The second set got a little spacy on me and I felt a little bored at times. Bill Nershi didn`t seem to know what he was doing at times and I longed to hear Kang tear it up which really didn`t happen. I have to say the crowd was really energetic and fun to be around. They are one of the strengths of the band. Overall, good show. I will go back again."

    "What a great show! My first Incident ever, and I was seated in the second to last row on ground level. So I was unfortunately under the balcony. When restless wind started I knew I was going to love the show. I Came to the show wanting to hear Sittin on top of the world, shine, rivertrance, and barstool. And I got what I wanted! The first set kicked ass as the songs weaved into eachother, these guys really know how to jam. The second set was pure insanity, I can`t wait to find out exactly how LONG that rivertrance was, but to me and my friends it felt like it was a half hour. The encore was crazy, I loved barstool so much, and then when I realized they were going into shakin the tree, I couldn`t believe it. Kang tore it up on vocals, but I must say one of the things I love about SCI is the lack of a lead singer or frontman, each man is talented in his own area and together they shine. Unfortunately, I can`t go to tonight`s show (the 5th), but next time they come around I`m gonna be there!! -dave 10/5/03 (review from"
