Review by ziggybirds

ziggybirds Wow. This MSG run has been exceptional. Each show a gem. Each show a reminder why I love this band. This show has everything. The first set opens with more barbershop singinging of Carolina, and then a nice Blaze On. The Moma>Gumbo>Cities is a tasty highlight. The Gin rips. The Wilson crowd response literally gave me chills. The YEM finishes up the set in an awesome way.

The second set is just exactly perfect.

Tweezer>Party Time is the jam of the year for me. Wonderful transitions. Fantastic song placement and jams. Quite literally a wow experience.

Velvet Sea was perfect. Perfect placement. Welcomed like an old friend and beautifully played.

Rocky Top. The last time this ended a show was my first show attended in Eugene in October 2014. I love that show, but I love this one more.

Growing up in NY, Lou Reed was always a favorite. Starting with the VU. R&R was the perfect, quintessential encore selection for this show. I was grinning from ear to ear.

tweeprise was perfect. This show will demand many listens in the future. Quite possibly the show of the year. Enjoy. Happy New Year!
