Review by ssp_saratoga

ssp_saratoga I honestly don't see what all the hype is about. The second set can only be described as average at best. Just because Runaway was long doesn't mean it was very interesting. There were 12 minutes of what I thought was meandering, uninspired jamming that after 20 minutes petered out into nothing. No segue to speak of whatsoever. I liked the spin on Farmhouse - no doubt about that. Alaska was tough to sit through -- though mainly because I despise that song (along with Joy). Fair chalkdust, ER an FYF. The Grind-Meatstick thing was clever but other than being cute, were these musically remarkable in any way? I don't believe so.

Very strong first set, let down by the 2nd. 3-stars here.
