Review by Jephwa14

Jephwa14 This show immediately got thrown in the "average" pile of an undeniably strong Summer 2015 tour. I'd encourage everyone to give this a 2nd spin, though; you'll find this show is one of the most consumable of the summer.

The entire 1st set up to Maze is standard fare with all the ingredients of a fun start to the evening.

Once Maze hits, the 2nd Quarter reveals itself as the true champ of this show. The four song, 44 minute ride through Maze, Mercury, Reba and Possum is a nice microcosm of everything first sets have become this tour. Daring, lengthy and mostly impeccable. Give that first set a ride and you'll be back in the saddle often.

The Second Set fights to find it's footing a few times (notably a real push to jam out Halley's and a wonderful, albeit abbreviated 2015 Twist) but as a full listen, is incredibly satisfying. Blossom and Alpine2 bookend this show, so that's tough company, but give this a 2nd and 3rd spin. You'll like what you hear. The Slave is a particularly soothing beauty and ending with Zero was a sign of the rager coming the next evening.

This one will stand the test of time perhaps better than some of the current favorites from 2015. Thanks for taking a look.
