Review by gratefulphishy

gratefulphishy This show was pretty good. Not at the top of my list of ones I’ve seen but not at the bottom. I need to go back and relisten to a few things but the show had its ups and downs.

Crowd control opens it up and it sort of got the crowd moving. Not personally one of my favorites but an interesting opener. Didn’t expect to get a NMINML since they played it in Alpharetta. It’s nothing super special but got my feet going. Blaze on had a good peak nothing to write home about though. Lawn boy was on the funnier side tonight. A nice outro by Page that got some laughs. Infinite had a little jam. Worth a relisten even though the song isn’t super spectacular imo. Wilson really rages the place. Interesting little jam in it. Roggae was beautiful. Not a really long jam but go check it out if you haven’t. Rift is rift. 46 days gets a crunchy funk jam in the beggining. A couple flubs by Trey here and there. Sparkle never does much for me. Bowie is dark and abstract. The jazz really came out in this one. Even the peak was obscure.
First set gets a 3/5. The set had some nice moments but nothing got insanely crazy. Nothing over 10-11 minutes either as far as I remember.

Down with disease will be gold on the jam chart. Just listen to it, it’s magnificent. Everything you want in a jam. Then of course a bdtl comes. I’m really against this song overall and t’s a pretty good one but just a let down after such an awesome dwd. IAWITW was cool, lots of computer noises from page. Miss you wasn’t expected. Light is great. Jam chart worthy. Mikes was very weird. At first I thought trey was having some trouble with his guitar. Then it almost seemed like he was doing this weird things on purpose. None the less this jam gets so damn good for the length. Into hydrogen and a decent weekapaug.
Second set 3.5/10. A decent set but too many ups and downs in the songs. The second they got us going they hit us with a weirdly placed song.

Overall 3.25/5
