Bob_Loblaw Deer Creek Rarely Disapoints

Few shows open quite the way this one does either the crowd was losing their minds or were wondering WTF was going on.

Rhinoceros is a fantastic debut to kick things off it really sets the mood. Hailey's isn't your run of the mill typical version. It quickly goes into a nice Wah-Funk jam, very reminiscent of the cohesive funky fall '97 jams. Page and Trey are locked into eachother. It then goes into a nice drum led Mellow, Psychedelic type jam. I really REALLY enjoy this jam. It's not balls out and not super spacey it's really just right for me. Awesome Ride Captain Ride bustout that is very well played. The guitar solo is also quite noteworthy. Solid Moma Dance and a Strong Character Zero.

Gumbo comes out of nowhere to start set 2. The jam is very groove based but excellent in it's execution. Sloppy intro to Axilla. A top shelf tube love me a solid tube. and if this show wasn't weird and random enough, The Wedge ends the set. It's also excellent.

Now in my opinion most people were expecting When the Circus Comes and if they didn't like it they were walking out. But stick around because were still going to play A solid Antelope as a bonus.

Overall a great show. It's shy of 5 stars but I'd give it over 4 if I could!
