Review by JMart

JMart Settling into this show I was convinced they were going to play gamehendge. I mean, they hadn't played one song from it the whole tour. Not one. Go back and check. Not even an ACDC. And they sound checked lizards! Then they played Wilson! And my theory was crushed!

But they played Lizards, so that was cool.

Highlight of this show was the true segue from chalk dust to tweezer. It was smooth as silk, deserving of being compared to some of the great segues of all time (the wolfman's->boogie on comes to mind). The tweezer jam got very dark and then quiet. You could hear them searching for the direction before they entered the puddle and Lizards crawled out. Very satisfying.

Again, my yardstick for measuring shows now is "are they trying?" With summer 2015 thus far, the answer more often than not has been "yes!" And for that we can all be thankful. Big weekend coming up. Have fun out there. We'll be holding down the couch for you.
