"...when antelope opener kicked off i thought here we go!!!! but antelope was sub par, roses are free was average and so was funky bitch and moma dance. 4 songs that can soar to unknown plains of highly exploratory worlds. but they did not. yes they were tight and the whole set was high energy, which i love. but to me guitar solos or keyboard solos dont count as a jam."

If they didn't mix up musical styles then simply constant jamming would most likely get boring. They've been in that musical state before. They are trying to keep a mood and theme and feel throughout full long jams through full sets through full shows. The difference in feel is really a display of them being able to slow it down a notch. Trey said to Shapiro that he's "heard a lot of girls complain about them playing too fast. But he's never heard one say they were playing too slow." That's why they were trying to separate Weekapaug from Mike's Song with more songs in between and slow down the tempo of Paug. Last night was an exception since it was a Groove>Paug sandwich, and it was definitely not slowed down this time.

P.S. To CentralScrutinizer: I mistakenly accused you of making the above quote. My deepest apologies.
