white_lightning Brief thoughts having attended: set I was well played, which is all I ever ask, though not my absolute favorite song selection, and certainly not a set I that rises any higher than efficient and competent.

Set II however...where to begin. If nothing else, it can temporarily put to rest any hand wringing about 3rd quarters and 4th quarters and type II, etc. It would rank up there with anything recent for me as far as cohesion, energy and execution.

I don't know if it was just me, but I thought both Golden Age and Tweezer had obvious nods back to night 1's 2001. I need to relisten when I get home, but NMINML was the highlight of the show. And the Hood was rather atypical in a really interesting way.

I was surprised by how much I liked WOTC as an encore, and as was the theme for the latter half of the night, they pretty much nailed it.

Great show, owing largely to set II.
