Review by crazysteve

crazysteve i have never written a review for any show. cars trucks buses is a perfect way to open up a show, we knew it was gonna be a smoker. stealing time was pretty straight forward. i love ginseng and they have to play this song more. i remember this wolfman's being on the shorter side, but oh so funky. by sparkle i was pretty faced and i was laughing laughing and falling apart. walk away was a straight rocker i remember feeling the energy during this one. this divided sky was probably the best one ive heard live . MELT started getting real dissonant and out there, buuut trey wanted to play julius. fine by me it was rockin. excellent first set. now this second set is why people remember Reading. DOWN WITH DISEASE holy shit i felt like it would never end. absolutely soaring jam that led into taste which i remember as being pretty tight. 20 years later- not a song ANYONE would expect a sick jam to come out of, but it happened. i turned to my bro at one point and said "i know you rider" he definitely heard it too. i remember someone saying they heard parts of sugar magnolia in disease. this piper was really short but it was really tight and funky. now, at almost every GREAT show ive seen, trey always throws in a #line towards the end of the second set, not sure why. But there was so much energy during this show it didnt put a damper on it at all. then that YEM. oh so very funky. gordo was really laying down the thick funk. everyone was groovin super hard. i always love a good grind to end a set. best encore ever. we all knew they wouldnt do a standalone bouncin' encore after that smoker of a show. as the last notes of bouncin were happening i heard the reba intro in my head, then it fucking happened!! i couldnt believe it. then to top it off GTBT. what a fucking show. really glad i found a dude with needlepoint as i was entering the arena.
