brob711 Hose Hose Hose and more Hose. This is a spectacular show.

First set highlights:

Gumbo>Cities. Page really shines on the clavinet during his solo in Gumbo and Cities is super fierce. Then came the first big and hosey jam of the night… Bathtub Gin. Reminiscent of the Went Gin, this one displays some SERIOUS hose jamming to an incredible, uplifting peak. A must-hear! Trey showed off his tapping skills in the solos of Wilson, providing a fun different sound! Eddie Van Treylen! A short, but sweet, YEM closes off a great first set.

Now, the second set… oh boy…

Tweezer kicks things off. A filthy jam ensues which turns into a blissful hose peak! Sparks is busted out after 201 shows, and I’m pretty sure nobody complained about that. Next comes a sick Ghost. This one got crazy good and type II with many dimensions. More hose as well! Light comes next, a seemingly “classic” segue now out of Ghost. In this light, one can hear NFA, Mountain Jam, and The Wheel-like jamming. Then out of nowhere, surprising all of us, PARTY TIME! One of the butteriest transitions of 2016. Whether you hear Light->Party Time or just a Party Time jam, this one packs a serious punch! Wading tones down the vibes a bit, and is played well. Then the energy is brought back with Rocky Top! A fun end to a fantastic jammy set.

The encore is the icing on the cake. R&R is the perfect fit for the end of the show, the vibes are uplifting and Trey soars to a nice peak. Tweeprise finishes things off, with Kung and Martian Monster quotes. Beautifully thought out.

This show is special. One of the best 3.0 shows to date. Recommended listening? All of it.
