cristilclear Whereas the first night was ice cold, this show was smoking hot. People were shedding layers well into the night. And not just their clothes.
This was a peeling of the onion show. The crowd was completely involved throughout, fun water bass balloons kicking around, tons 'o glow sticks (striking the band in the face...wonder how they felt about that), many musical references to sobriety=FUN, (no beer-bellied dancers???), lots of resounding echos growing from the crowd. Awesome!
Peaked in the second set. First set left us wondering if they go on stage sans set-list and just listen to crowd requests. Which is cool but choppy. Alaska featured a Little Feat jam toward the end (Dixie Chicken dig, I believe) Harry Hood kicked it up just one more notch as it always does. Lifted. Fishman is playing that super high high-hat thing that creates a vortex all it's own, like angels dancing on a pin, and brings us to heights we haven't known before. Yeah, boy.

PS. First night Worcester was cold yet still a smoking show.
