last night was a terrible terrible show. people thought SPAC would be the ignition for this tour and actual has made the situation worse. this is not the same band that came out of watkins glen...as an example listen to the 46 day, rager guaranteed. has the power to close a show at MSG, lyrics go by, trey needs to nail the basic solo and he plays quiet. No Man's pales in comparison to last year Golden Age was complete meltdown.I just have to disagree, pretty emphatically. I looked at your stats, started in 92, 100+ shows under your belt. You definitely have the pedigree to know great shows from shit ones. I wasn't at the show, but gave it a listen last night after work and enjoyed it quite a bit. Not an all-time rager by any means. The first set seemed like a perfunctory run-through, not great, but not horrendous by any means. I really dug the second set though. I thought it flowed well, was well-played and was all together a tight set. For me, I love a 12 song set of well played tunes just as much as I enjoy a 6 song set that melts my face. Well, maybe not just as much, but pretty close. I have changed every year of my life. I've slowed down and grown wiser in my choices as I age, from my personal life to my guitar playing. I expect the band to do the same, and to me, they have. Just my opinion.
