Review by dscott

dscott Sub-par show overall, and other reviewers have described the sloppy mess that is the 1st half of Set 1. At least things get competent after the forgotten lyrics Fee-asco, albeit largely ordinary. A relatively brief Chalkdust Torture has a little extra snarly gnar to its final 3 minutes or so, and Gin drops into a decent funk groove which nicely sets things up for how it meets its Moma.

Legit highlights can be found in the jams out of Fee and McGrupp, which are truly wonderful! I could swear that the funky melody that they keep repeating between ~9:45 and ~12:00 (when the jam takes on a Manteca-ish tone) is a tease of a familiar song, but I just can't place it.
