Review by EBreezy

EBreezy I would like to point out that Mike briefly used his power drill during the DWD intro. I could see it from my spot in sec. 102.

This was one HELL of a show, and my first indoor. CTB opener was unexpected and awesome. Seemed like a kind of "Hey thanks for driving out to READING to see us! We're back on the road to AC as soon as the show is done" (No joke, I saw 5 tour buses booking it down Penn St just after they finished their encoreā€¦ One of which I could see the glow of a fish tank from inside!).

I've heard a bunch of the songs they played tonight live before, but the only song I experienced at back to back shows was YEM (my last show was Merriweather). Cars Trucks Buses, Sparkle, Walk Away, Divided Sky, Twenty Years Later, Grind, and BAtR are the new songs under my belt after tonight's show and what a way to get them there! Extremely well played show, with a lot of interesting twisting and turning that left the crowd scooping brain matter out of their shoes. It's in other reviews, but my GOD that Twenty Years Later was a funky improvisational fuckfest. I can honestly say there wasn't a song in tonights set that brought my mood down. I've even seen BDtNL a couple times and in other instances has been a little bit of a buzzkill in the midst of a fiery second set, but this time I was cutting the rug up with the lady.

Grind second set closer? Let's not forget that they pull that song out for special crowds at special places and times. They appreciate small crowds that do their best to come see them in (this case relatively) out of the way places, and gave us a hell of a show pre-Halloween run where they could have easily given us an OK one. Definitely worth the listen!
