Mike Gordon said in Glide Magazine his favorite on-stage moment of '04 came in this show's second set, "Loved" Alpine, he said. I concur and I would put the second set up there for most emotional and meaningful ever, not just for 2.0. Certainly in the ballpark. Some people complained about Friday, but it was as pertinent as it ever would be and was well-played (I happen to like the song though). The jams are attentive, really really funky in parts, and without reserve. The Free especially is an illumination of how delicate and yet unwavering this band dares to take its improvisation. So great, I just hope people are brave enough to listen despite the propaganda that blankets 2.0 shows. Highlights: The whole second set as one auditory odyssey. Cheers to Alpine and another great round in 2010!
