Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez this is without a doubt one of the top shows of the year. I pick this second set, columbus's and memphis's for sets of the year. this show is rocking from start to finish, and they really cover a lot of ground in this one. chalk dust starts this one off appropriately. trey really drives this one. they keep the momentum going in a nice rocking sloth. the curtain gets down, and they play this one well. waste seems really strange in this slot, but loving cup works well. the rest of this set is a little hit and miss. nellie kane and taste work for me but the rest is rather blah.

then we start a killer second set. the first peaches in over two years really smokes. of course, after peaches, you have to play something big. this ac/dc bag starts out with a much harder edge than most. the song is played with a lot of energy, and the jam that follows is a monster. they move through rock, funk, and spacier realms before finally petering this one out. right when they hit a nice spacey delay loop jam, they slam right into a nasty funky gumbo. this one moves through a quicky funky jam before gordo and fishman lead the band into a full on another one bites the dust jam. trey has a lot of fun with this one. instead of slowing it down, they play a relatively brief, for the time, but very inspired down with disease. trey was really burning on this one before cracking into the rowdiest set closer of them all....frankenstein. i really like the simple encore here. they should do this more often. it peters out nicely and they bid the crowd farewell with a nice hello my baby. excellent show
