Review by lancelot_the_phriendly

lancelot_the_phriendly 1st show in Reading, PA after 30 years as a group, and these guys kill it. Wow. 20 minutes from my house, and what a show - if you weren't there, you missed something.

"CTB" opener was nice and jazzy...got the mood going. Great "Stealing Time", "Ginseng Sullivan" was nice to hear as well. Nice funky "Wolfman's" and "Sparkle">"Walk Away" was definitely a treat...and then "Divided Sky" starts. Now, I might be a bit biased when it comes to this, as it is one of my favorite songs of ever, but this version was phenomenal. And then "SOAM" which sent me into space for 15 minutes...a rather odd transition into "Julius", but a solid first set.

Then, the second set.

Man oh Man, what a set. "DwD" opener was one of the most awe-inspiring, uplifting things I have ever heard; and a > into "Taste"(which was also fantastic)? Holy crap! "Twenty Years Later"? Jam was indescribable. Interesting > into "Piper"(rather straightforward, but ROCKING)..."#line" was good. Not a real extended crazy jam, but it worked. And YEM! What a YEM; Mike and Trey were on FIRE here. Great great interplay between the two. The vocal jam was pure sci-fi freakout stuff. And the set closer? "Grind". WOW.

If that weren't enough, we get an encore that starts with "BAtR > REBA". REBA ENCORE. Played FLAWLESSLY. GTBT closes out the first ever show in Reading...
