Review by kipmat

kipmat This show is an unusual "off" night for Fishman, although it certainly doesn't help that Trey picked some of the most rhythmically complex tunes in the repertoire for the setlist. Drumming miscues surface within the lead-ins to the jam sections of Bowie and Tweezer, as well as normally routine songs like Silent In The Morning and The Landlady. He makes it through other monsters like Reba, It's Ice, and Divided Sky without any train wrecks, but I can hear him struggling to hook up with the other three during the jams in those songs. Given that I Didn't Know features Fishman soloing on a drum pedal, I suspect that he upgraded his drum kit during the two days off between the 6/26 Charleston WV show and this night; it seems the most reasonable explanation for any weirdness in this show. (It would also explain why his playing is so pronounced through the rest of this tour!)
