Review by ivebeentheretoo

ivebeentheretoo From the couch on both wednesday and saturday, I'll keep my observations brief: This show is underrated.
The first set had better playing than it is being given credit for. The wolfman's and ASIHTOS are both top notch first set songs. The jamming on these was very good, and both managed to have the energy you'd want. In terms of set 2, I think it's the best set of the run. Ghosts has a LOT to offer, including TWO fantastic peaks. There was machine gun playing AND full band jams in this set. Theme>Cities was almost perfect, and both featured cool jamming too.

And the third set had that Tweezer which is nothing to laugh at. The highlights from this show were fantastic, and even some of the mid-level playing of this show (wolfmans and ASIHTOS) I'd relisten to for sure.

I think that this show has the best standalone set of the run, and is getting unfairly bashed because the first few songs of the show (of the run) weren't very tight. The show overall had more winners than any other night, but it got watered down because of the three sets. If the wolfman's, ghost, ASIHTOS, theme>cities and Tweezer were in a wednesday night 2 set show any other time of year, I think we all would have lost our collective minds and called it one of the best of 2014 (now 2015). Just my $0.02
