Review by thesloth11

thesloth11 A solid show from start to finish. It was a hot day and we arrived on the lot as soon as gates opened. Shakedown was on the sidewalks due to the Prairie Dog plague, but it worked out great. I managed to score the last “Plague side rage side” T shirt with an infected Prairie dog on the front which made my day.

After checking out Shakedown for a while, my crew and I visited the Dicks meat up We met the infamous Dale Cooer and some other .net legends. Everyone was super friendly, I definitely recommend this for all the fence-sitters who have contemplated attending in the past.

Now on to the show....I think N2 edges out N1 for the best show of the run. The band was locked in all night and for whatever reason, Trey’s vocals were better sounding tonight than N1.

Let’s talk about that 1st set Ghost. It was absolutely incredible...a must-hear version. Dark and evil while breathtakingly beautiful Reminds me of the Carini from the 2012 NYE run..... jam of the weekend imho.

Song selection throughout both sets was great and it shouldn’t be understated how locked in they were all night. Who doesn’t love a Mountains in the mist? This rendition was as beautiful and the Camden ‘99 version...they absolutely nailed it. Tube was stellar and the segue from the very good DWD into NICI was flawless. i am probably in the minority, but I really enjoyed and appreciated the Brian and Robert complete with the “you’d be lost on the Plague Ground” vocals.

Can’t wait to come back and do it again next year. ....what an incredible night!!!
