Penn42 Super-duper standard first set. If you've listened to lots of '94 you can look at the setlist and know what you're in for. There's really nothing to comment on, just the same ole same ole.

The second set has many individual highlights that don't create a very succinct whole. It's Ice is average. Tweezer, Reba, and YEM are all very quirky. At one point Tweezer reaches this place that, if I were to attempt to describe, I'd call Phishgrass + folk music from the alps. That probably isn't very close, but it gets different in the middle of the jam. The Reba is the highlight of the show. Despite not having the best peak, it is a very unique version that warrants multiple listens. YEM with Claypool is pretty fun. Claypool definitely adds some new flavor to it.

This is an oddball, lopsided, disjunct show. It's not *bad*, but it all doesn't work together very well. Definitely seek out the Reba though, and if you've got time, the Tweezer and YEM.
