Review by Pianowitch

Pianowitch Sorry that you missed your songs by one night. We've all had that happen to us now and then. That's one of the beauties of this band, you never know what's going to happen. Obviously, there's going to be some shows that are better than others during a 28-show run. You go and catch as many as you can and hope for the best. At the very least, you will have a good time. However, anyone who did not expect a smokin show last night has not been paying attention. I believe something changed with band on 6/27/10. It seems to me that they really started to get to where they are now around this date, and they come back every year to MPP to re-live the moment. After the show, I saw the venue staff changing the Merriweather sign to read "46 days pavillion."

As far as people saying, "why can't they play (song) like they did in (year)?" Well, if it's not new, then it's through. Why would they want to play the same way over and over again for years? If you don't keep things fresh then you lose people's attention. It's a new age of music and that's the whole point.

Oh yeah, and this show was pretty good. I was smiling practically the whole time. Very fun for the band and the crowd. I can't explain it really, but this show seemed to have come alive, if you will. This show is worth listening to more than once. The antelope, 46 days, piper, tweezer, walls, and encore were all great. Fish really drove that piper into something great.
