Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw An interesting show to say the least.

1st Set: The show gets of to a very exciting start with funk fest must haves Tube>Boogie on a Reggae Woman. But the set starts really meaning business when the guys play a beautiful incredibly strong Roggae mid set. The momentum never slows as they go into Tweezer, when played first set it's almost certain the guys are serious about it. The jam is all around solid and feels like a counterpart of it's brother 7/10/99. But the real deal is the movement into Have Mercy. The boys have shown their ability to move into it before (Antelopefest) but this one is special as it's a big bust out.

2nd Set: This set has peaks and valleys IMO. Son Seals actually singing the Phish cover favorite is fun and gives the song a more natural organic feeling that the boys couldn't do alone just covering it. A typical ripping DWD jam which did not cover any ground it hasn't before, still great though. Then we have that big -> into Sally. What a buttery clean segue it was and the best part it wasn't the first amazing segue of the night!

This is a show close to greatness but with the dull patches it gets a 4 in my book.
