Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This is one of the very best shows from this year. And that is due to not just a very strong 2nd set but also an incredibly good 1st set.

Divided Sky is epic, has to be one of the longest pauses ever. Trey just relishes it and keeps going with it very inspired version. The Frankie Says after is my favorite version and likely one of the very best ever played. Free is also in the conversation for best version ever, it gets super funky and the guys are as linked together as they can be. And to end this epic set is likely the best version they've ever played of Bold as Love. Best this best that. Yes this set is the business.

You'd think they were out of gas by Set 2. But no you get a nice big Gin jam right out of the gate. You get swept up into a sky of bliss right away. And although it does have some parts and pieces from Gins before it's near flawless in it's execution. You get a nice bustout with TMWSIY>Avenu>TMWSIY. The Moma Dance is solid. And YEM is a straight up dance party from beginning to end, very fun version.

And there's nothing quite like a Frankenstein encore with Freebird as the cherry on top.

This gets a rare 5 stars from me, it has everything I want in a show.
