Review by SlavePhan

SlavePhan THE GOOD: The best parts of this show revolve around some chaotic Trey work hinting at Dave's Energy Guide. This happens in Divided Sky (11:07) and Stash (8:00). I like the Tweezer>Walk Away here, particularly because the Tweezer really gets into full 'hey' mode where the band is quite dissonant, very foreboding of the Tinley Park Antelope. Paul and Silas is much better with Gordon Stone here and is worth listening to.

THE BAD: Rain, rain rain. It was clear that the band barely got this show off. As a result, some of the fire was saved for the following night at Jones Beach. The rain clearly was affecting the event and eventually led to the band being pulled off stage somewhat early. Ya Mar ends abruptly and the following Poor Heart has to be restarted after the band can't get things together. It's unfortunate that TMWSIY never reappeared after Alvenu, but Trey tries to salvage the mood with Rocky Top. You be the judge if it works or not.

ETC: Trey and Fish scream a whole bunch during Poor Heart and there is an All Fall Down signal (I imagine everyone got quite muddy). Trey thanks everyone at the end of the show for braving the weather.

BOTTOM LINE: A highly anticipated return to Stowe yielded only marginal returns due to the weather. 2.5/5
