Review by NigelTufnel

NigelTufnel The second set was a wasted opportunity to build upon the night before (and, consequently, the band that played in Colorado on Labor Day weekend), in the form of ripcord Trey at it again - commence strange trips back to the 2011 run. Golden Age was gooey, and well deserving of praise. Waves, a revered jamming vehicle and a notably infrequent tune these days was primed for something special. Aside from the fact that this version may be the poorest performed version compositionally, it could be overlooked with some exploration on the song's blissful and seductively glacial release...and for a moment, they seemed destined to chart those waters. Then, inexplicably, Trey fuckerpants'd millions across the nation...no excuse other than that Trey didn't want to play the song anymore...but this is fucking New Years. There are only four shows to be played...why the Hell not roll the dice and lose yourself in some type two? You have no place to be for four days...and you came out justly on night one and played a brilliant show. Where was that band tonight?

First set was solid and really enjoyable. Waves > Caspian deflated the second frame and really, the remainder of the show. Two stars. C'mon Trey, you're better than this
