Review by DollarBill

DollarBill The boys get a day off before crossing the border, to yet another new venue, to play the 61st show of the tour in Canada. I’m totally bummed that there is no first set recording to hear. Taper got caught at the border, or just late getting there? Anyway, this review will be very brief because of the lack of source material.

First set: ???

Golgi was a solid opener for the second set with no real problems. Trey gets the acoustic out for a shaky My Friend intro. The song itself was ok, just average for this tour, as was ATR and Maze. Page takes us to school during the middle of a nice Lizards. Well played for the most part, although Trey blew the last note. Then the Balls come out, and it’s become a habit now to do this before YEM for, maybe, a finger break before a heavily composed song? YEM was pretty good overall with a decent fun jam leading into the Sundown vocal jam. Unfortunately, to make matters worse, the last four minuets of the YEM file is crap digital noise. Not sure what happened there? Trey gets the acoustic back out for some fun banter before a rough version of the Horse. Silent, on the other hand, is quite a lot better overall and much more locked in rhythmically. HYHU brings Fish out with more great stage banter about the vacuum and a full on tease of something. Eventually they do Love You with a vac solo of course. Cavern makes for a great closer to a pretty good set.

After a few weeks off, My Sweet One makes a comeback in the encore spot and this one is well played and then everyone gets shushed for Grace, which the recording was also messed up so, I’m sure it was fine.

Well I can’t offer a full opinion of this one, since I can’t hear it, so I guess this was just average to my ears for this tour. I’m going with three stars to keep the average down a bit.
