raidcehlalred That's pretty tough, man. The playing was fine. A song like MFMF the other night shows a deliberate attempt to 'use' tempo as means to shape sets and moments. Guelah was cool; moreover, what should be noted, is the PYITE PLUS the Magilla tease in Simple. Couple this with what we get in Scabbard, and we see the band reverting to pre-arena rock days (when they felt venue size rendered those songs 'unplayable.'). This is a really cool and interesting development - roots-rock, could that be applied to the band. Toss in a couple tour bust outs - not to mention the placements - and it's a really cool first set.

The second set boasts more fine playing. Love The Connection, as it truly serves to illustrate how attuned the band is to themselves and their fans. A lot to like as the tour trajectory continues to rise. I have a feeling this will coalesce with a totally electric, 'retro' Hood.
