Add Review Show Setlist

DriedupGoliathUIC Night 1 was far and away my favorite show from Summer '11 until I heard this show in full for the first time. The first set is *outstanding*, especially Cavern>Taste>Roggae>Walk Away. It's weird to say and think something like the "8/5/11 Roggae is one of the best jams of the summer", but it really is. Trey absolutely buries Walk Away (as he seems to do more often than not in 3.0). David Bowie is fairly cookie-cutter (as most versions in 3.0 are, unfortunately) but a cooke-cutter David Bowie is still incredibly exciting.

But the second set. Oh the second set. I was doing classwork during the my listening of the second set. I actually had to stop typing my essay when Page started playing the theremin midway through R'n'R and couldn't get back to work until the smooth-as-butter, lights-out, funky segue into Meatstick. This Rock n' Roll is, in my opinion the best jam of the summer. It just beats out the Pine Knob Disease and Dick's Tweezer.

Listen now.
