AaronDJH Saturday night was definitely high on expectations. Attendance bias for both nights for me for sure. We had obstructed view out behind 1st Saturday, on the field Friday, and the sound had a little echo off to our left...but only on super deep base or standalone punctuation notes from page/fish. There was some snap crackle and pop on the sound, and a couple times it sounded, at least where we were, like a mic or 2 might have gone out. But huge props to the band and tech team....they were only momentary lapses. Its easy to forget how hard it is to put on a show in the rain. The vibe was very chill and I feel like this show reflected that. Not so much a grab a seat in the moment, but it almost begged to just sit and listen and chill. I feel like this will be a show you can spin up for a bbq not to rage out but just to chill. That vibe was everywhere...at the bar preshow, in the pouring rain on the way into the show, inside the gates waiting....Carini was a great shot at sparking, but the vibe was not there. I feel ilke the setlist reflects that.....either they were locked in on that or they were completely disconnected. I felt locked in on that vibe, and they were too. Looking at the last 1/3 of the setlist in any other setting, the roof would have been blown off. The conversation would be so much different. With the unknown length of show there was more than enough reason to just rage all night...it just wasn't a rager. $0.02
