Nigel_Tufnel THERE THEY ARE!!

I was worried - especially after Portland, but alas.... it just took them a little longer than usual in the tour to get totally hooked up, in synch, and start goofing off and improvising. PHEW!

LOVED this show.

Cities shenanigans in the first set?! Yes, please. And I loved that Trey introduced his tech. That was very cool.

Second set Ghost & Light are perfect examples of what keeps me coming back to shows after all these years. Those jams where they just take you on a journey... to the point where you actually forget where you started. That ever happen to you? You know.... you're smiling, lost in a jam, hooked right up with them, and it literally takes you a little while to recall "...what song did this jam originate from? Oh yeah.... Light." I love it when that happens.

And I myself personally love the fun Trey is having with his Echoplex delay lately. When he fires it up and they all just fall in with it and jam on it.... tasty. (this Light and Mann 2015 Cities are noteworthy examples)

Then when the FOH (Front Of House - aka the "P. A." sound system) shit the bed, they even had fun with that and handled it with a smile.

And this was my first Walrus - and I loved it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this show. Can't wait to download it and enjoy it all over again.

Peace and gratitude,
