Review by BeAFractal

BeAFractal I'll preface this by reiterating what a at least one other expressed: this band is on fire, and having a sustained peak that rolls along. I wasn't at the Bend shows, but saw half fall tour and New Year's, and at Shoreline they picked up in the same zone they were in in Miami.

The first set didn't seem to cohere to me, but Waiting All Night was as beautiful as I've heard, DWD got short shrift, and the last halves of Limb By Limb and Walls of the Cave were the real deal.

When I went back in at the start of the second set thinking Trey had brought back Dancing In the Streets. During the last half of Backwards Down the Number Line there were moments that brought to mind a spinning top that occasionally levitated in a pirouette. After one of these little flights, the stranger who'd been dancing on my right and I looked at each other and both said "WOW!" in that instant. High fives all around, my friends!
