spac_melt This show is underrated, in my opinion. I think it really rubbed some folks the wrong way, when the boys didn't "spell something." In hindsight, of course, that doesn't really matter - T.H.A.N.K.Y.O.U. Anyway, well above average first set here. Tube is a high energy opener, and the Ghost follow up is nothing to sneeze at. Solid Undermind, and awesome versions of Gin, and 46 Days! The former builds quickly to a raging peak, and the latter has a more pulsing jam that slides into Antelope, which closes the first frame nicely.

Set 2 is the business! The Wolfman's opener goes deep, if not incredibly long. Great stuff in here from Trey in particular. It doesn't build to a screaming rock and roll climax, but rather something more contemplative, and reaching. Extra mustard improv for sure. The Blaze On>Golden Age is the highlight of the set. Top drawer improvisation, and possibly the best 1-2 punch from the Dick's shows. This Fuego is also really nice. If you're a fan of the tune, check this one out! Not quite one of the Mega Fuegos (7/4/14, 7/8/14, 7/30/14, 8/11/15), but certainly incredibly well played. Always love Walls in the closer spot, and the Bike encore is PERFECT, if that's your thing.

I'm a huge fan of this run. These 3 shows get a lot of play from me. If these shows took place any other year, at any other venue, they would be praised. Magnaball left some pretty big shoes to fill :)
