Without a doubt, and not even worried about being a honk, Down Side Up. I watched this show come together from the start of ST and knew I was witnessing something special. I still show DSU as my favorite of all time to my friends and family. 😉

Longtime DCP member Bruckner8, who I believe has done some teaching for Bluecoats, wrote this on June 1, 2016:

"What to expect from Bloo 2016: Some old school, some compulsories, and some game-changers."

I had to go with Felliniesque.  I still remember seeing it the first time in Metamora, Illinois.  Blown away.  

2nd Bloo Down Side Up

Felliniesque. I saw that in Ft. Wayne the night Bloo got within a point of it. That’s as close as anyone got all season.  By the time the ballad sucked the air out of your lungs with the silent bits between hits, you knew you were watching the World Champions

Fully expecting to get smoked for the homer pick, but Felliniesque is the greatest performance i have ever seen live. Not even close. Thanks for playing, God Bless goodnight.

1. Down side up changed Bluecoats and the activity in so many ways.

Felliniesque and Ink are astounding productions with imo the best books BD has done this decade.

Babylon is a crazy amazing show.

The Ft Wayne show was BDs worst run that season. I remember it being billed as the showdown of the decade since it was the first matchup between Felliniesque and Tilt. Bloo absolutely ripped the house down and slayed everyone in their path with their performance that night. BD on the other hand was flat, lacked energy, appeared to be going thru the motions, and they still won by a full point. That was the nail in the coffin for the 2014 season. Sadly for Tilt, they were the innocent person that was in the wrong place at the wrong time..........or wrong year is better. Any other year, Tilt is your DCI champ. But in 2014, no one earth was beating Felliniesque.
