Review by KingDisco

KingDisco Hello,

This is my first review and third overall show. I debated doing my first back-to-back to get a taste of a run of shows. I decided to just hit tonights and cruise back to PA tomorrow. Unfortunately for me I feel like tomorrows show was the one to see.

Weird vibe in the beginning. Just about everyone I encountered was hoping for a PYITE opener. Instead... Kill Devil Falls. Just an all around odd set, that was hard to get going. Certainly very enjoyable jamming end of set I. I like this Maze alot and Yarmouth really tries to grow on me. SOAM in the rain was alot of fun, I wonder if it will sound as good on tape or for someone not having the heavens open on the lawn.

Really like when DWD opens second set. Silly though they may be a nice glowstick barrage right after sunset really combined nicely. But again I think the boys got stuck in neutral. I felt like Harry could save the set but even that seemed uninspired. Mike's Groove had its moments but a very average set all around.

I'll never get why you would start an encore with Waste. Whatever momentum they had coming out of Mike's Groove fizzled.

As always my sincerest hopes is that I am completely wrong and bashed on this thread. I hope I missed something out there in the rain on the lawn and I put this show on heavy rotation, hating myself for putting down this show. For now, just a couple of hours later, I keep thinking back to the crowd and my neighbors out there on the lawn and I know this was a miss. Can't win em all.

2/5
