Review by FoxmansBrother

FoxmansBrother While there was nothing extremely notable to say about the music itself, this was a top-bottom GREAT SHOW.

First set: This was the best first set since the tour opener in Burlington. Great versions of Magilla, Gin, Julius and Stash. Additionally, it was a phenomenally flowing set. Rather than seeing forced Hoist tracks mixed in the set, the song choices were very well planned. The only questionable call was the Rift IMO, but the Rift, Gin>Nellie Kane sandwich is nice. Additionally I LOVE the Squirming Coil as a set closer.

Stash was particularly chaotic with some crazy shredding from Trey. A pretty good listen.

Second set: Good start with sample, followed by an ok Reba. Reba was looming on greatness but Trey was really sloppy on the build up hitting a lot of flat sounding notes. He redeems himself with a good peak.

Peaches was great to follow Reba, as Reba is speculated to be a Zappa inspired piece. A fun Big Ball/Little Drummer boy jam. Solid Mike's followed by a pretty good Weekapaug featuring a fun vocal jam. Tela seemed a little out of place after 'paug but otherwise the ending of Slave and Cavern fit well.

Final Thoughts: This would have been a great show to be at, and easily was the best show of the run since the tour opener.

Highlights: Gin, Stash, Weekapaug Groove
