Review by gingerphish

gingerphish As another reviewer said, those of us on the lawn got completed flood. At first it wasn't so bad and a lot of people were sticking it out to hold onto their spots but soon our shoes were filled and any covering we were using was drenched through. We escaped to the PAV and there were literal streams running down the stairs. Rain was blowing under the whole amphitheater so much that they had to cover the instruments. Crazy stuff.

That being said, of course the energy was crazy high by the time the show started. The lawn dried off nicely and we had a dance party. SYSF was a great, powerful opener and the crowd went absolutely nuts during Strawberry letter. Halfway to the Moon turned out to be a decent version with a soaring solo but the BOAF, Wolfman's is really where the meat of this set lies. Definitely the most relisten value here.

S2 was amazing but had to be cut a little short due to the delay from the monsoon pre S1. Mercury was absolutely incredible and makes me regret ever saying I didn't like this song. It was pre 2018 and I really didn't think the song had taken hold yet. I've been proving wrong many times since. No Man's is an incredible jam at only 11 minutes. I was confused with the placement of WACTOOB even though this is one of my favorite Kasvot songs.Oh well, on to a ripping About to Run, one of my favorite GOTF songs. A powerful antelope closes us out and after a brief encore sing along, N1 is in the books. Overall, good opener for the weekend. High energy, the crowd was very engaged and some deep jams with BOAF, Wolfman's Mercury and NMINML even though from the times of 3 of these you might not think so. Love this mirco jamming term. Will be using it more.
