Character Zero- I love this as an opener! Lets be honest this song had worn out it's welcome. This version is lively and immediatly whips the crowd into a frenzy. Lets hope this happens again soon.
Destiny>- I might of crapped my pants! First time so it was special and sounded great taboot. The nice little jam sandwiched in the verses is pretty sweet.
Rift- Wow what year is it? Great version!
McGrupp- Just shit my pants again! There are no bad versions of this one so . . .
Gin- GReat jamming on this one. Solid, very solid.
Mountains- I'm really liking this one. Very mellow with a floaty rythm.
Gumbo> Short but sweet. I love when they stretch this one out but it gets cut off for MSO.
MSO- Best 2 minutes of bluegrass you'll ever hear. Just kidding it was fine though.
Stealing time- What a great song. Heavy, Deep and retrospective for most. This song will grow into a monster by next year.
Strange design- I haven't heard it since clifford ball I think or at least I can't remember. Lovely as always.
Sanity- Heard it in Albany last year have now lost my sanity once again.
Antelope- Nothing crazy here but everyone loves Antelope:)
How do top the first set you ask? . . . .
R&R>- . . . thats how. My favorite opener along with Drowned. This one smokes especially the last 4-5 minutes.
Caspian>- I heard a lot of moans at the opening chords but you know what? You cheated yourself out of a great rendition. Caspian can zap the momentum on occasion but this isn't one of them. Beautiful! the transition into Tweezer will give you the willies. Trust me.
Tweezer>- Tight, Funky, SICK!!! Not long but very creative and fresh. My favorite song of the night.
Slave- Best version in over 15 years! $$$
Bouncing- if you were hating Caspian then you problably slashed your wrists when Mike started this one. I liked the call though. Stuffed a phatty and was ready to go for the 4th quarter.
Backwards>- My favorite song off of Joy. Tight jam man I couldn't d stop dancing. Great jam. Bravo!
Hood>- A sign of a great show. Thought it was the closer but I was wrong once again.
Loving Cup- Best choice for a closer!
E: Monkey>Tweezer Reprise- Sent us into the lot happy as clams. Baked Clams that is.
