Slewfoot Wow. I can't recall hearing such mixed reviews of a show. I attended and had a great time, but completely realize the show had flaws. The heat factor should not be underestimated for both how the band felt and also (perhaps more important for this site) how everyone else felt inside. It's easy to get sluggish and irritable in that kind of heat. I felt that coming on and moved away from close center floor to all the way to the side on Page Side where there was room and it was SO much more enjoyable an experience.

I also think the band just played a whole lot better in the second set. It was mellow, but the music itself flowed nicely even if the middle of the set left something to be desired from a setlist perspective. As with the Dead, it's not what they play, but how they play it and I thought that rang true on this night's second set.

Anyway, I had a fun time even if it wasn't nearly in the top tier of shows I've seen since my first in 1994.
