One other thing I remember about the show
There was a running gag of sorts in the form of Randy alluding to a recently departed band member he referred to as "Carlos". At first, Randy was acting like their parting was amicable but his feelings about the subject seemed to become more agitated as the show progressed until finally, he began one of his between-song stage patter segments with "You know what? #### Carlos!".
The show I saw was at Bimbo's here in SF. Tiny place (often used for non-music related shows, like comedy shows) so yeah it was really loud, especially the guitar (and yes, the guitarist was obviously consciously trying to sound like Snakefinger).
