AustinTxNate Great show and excellent vibe at Austin360 Amphitheater last night. Tuesday was the first non-triple-digit day in a couple weeks, so low 90's at showtime at 80's by a few songs in was welcomed weather by most Austinites there.

Sample opener was fun and light in the 2 spot was a treat. Light had a nice jam and a rocking peak. From the get-go, there was good interplay. Moma-Funky got the place moving. Fish nailed the Moma vocals and Trey shredded the end of Funky. After Funky Bitch, Trey took a second to address the crowd, "I know a lot of people move to Austin from different parts of the country, I'm just curious how many of yall are REAL Texans here? Raise your hands!" As Trey stood with both hands up and even flashed a hook em horns /rock n roll to the delight of the crowd. Reminding everyone that he was born in Ft. Worth in 1964.

A quick romp through Heavy Things, before Theme added a nice change of pace and first real Kuroda porn of the night. Solid versions of Brian and Robert - halfway to the moon and the line followed. You can tell Page loves playing Halfway to the moon.

During Fishmans vacuum solo in I Didn't know, Mike took his shoes off, dropped trou to reveal matching shorts underneath. Trey then changed the lyrics to "is this a picture of, Mike's calves!?" As the sun had fully set, 46 days brought the heat and some nice effect work by Trey to end a solid first set filled with Texas Banter, excellent vocals, and a bit of pageantry. The boys were obviously having a great time!

Second Set started off with a bang! If you haven't listened to Everything's Right, do it! The one-two punch of ER -> DWD is a tasty 40 minute of junk of what makes the band the best on the planet. The rest of the second set was bliss. On point playing, and Trey's tone was crisp and confident. Loving CUP left everyone wanting more! So happy that they came back to Austin after a somewhat off night with lots of songs in 2015, and really laid down and downright beast of a second set. Come back soon boys! See y'all at CURVEBALL!
