SlavePhan THE GOOD: This show featured a handful of tunes that hadn't been played on summer tour yet (Funky Bitch, Weigh, Forbin's) but the best part of this show may lie in the slower tunes, FEFY and Lifeboy, both of which got fine treatment. The first-set closing Possum features some nice work from Trey. While Forbin's had begun to be a rare treat at this point of 1993, this version is quite similar to others from this year (particularly the floating in an ocean concept).

THE BAD: Not too many negatives to this show, although the somewhat haphazard flow of both sets keeps this from being a must-listen. The band kept the bluegrass/southern rock trend for the tour going on this night, with a handful of #s that tilt in this direction (MMGAMOIO, Sparkle, Daniel, Rocky Top), but without the emphasis and energy from the night before.

ETC: Mike is particularly vocal in this Funky Bitch, which hadn't been played since the spring. Fans of the eerie may want to take a listen to the beginning of this Maze, which has Trey whispering indecipherably a la the Providence Bowie. During Daniel, Trey gives a special thanks to "The Blumps". There is a major classic rock tease in the YEM, which carries the jam (tune yet to be ID'ed). Bouncing has a longer outro than normal and is quite nice.
