sethadam1I'd rank 12/28 above this show, if only for the excellent Cities jam and the beautiful Carini > Tweezer.

This show did have some really nice highlights, though.

In the first set, I love the "Sloth, YEM" opening combo. Although far from legendary, it was a good sign. BOTT was funky, and the song choices of Maze, Roses, and Halley's were pleasing. Sadly, they're nothing to write home about.

In the second set, the Simple > Lifeboy was magnificent. The Mike's raged, and the Chalk Dust placement gets an A+, even if they should have closed with it (or better yet, Chalk Dust Reprise!). The Weekepaug Groove screamed. Unfortunately, the end of the show fell flat for me. A Zero set ender with a Loving Cup encore feels as run-of-the-mill as you can get.

Overall, a nice show, but one I probably won't listen to more than once.
Score: 7
