Add Review Show Setlist

ucpeteThis is a solid show that feels a bit uneven -- there are some lulls in the action, but the high points are very high. In the first set, Gumbo is one for the ages, and in fact is the first ever jammed out Gumbo that was a sign of things to come (8/13/97, 8/3/98, 8/15/98). Ghost is huge too, and has an almost Crosseyed feel to it, before (setlist is mislabeled) > Swept Away > Steep > Loving Cup takes us into the break in unusual fashion. The second set has a rip-roaring extended Antelope early in the set (see what I mean about unusual?), and after Wading, we get one last peak (Twist -> Taste) before a victory lap takes us home. This is a top 10, maybe top 5 ever Twist, that goes full Type II, gets dark as hell, and somehow pulls itself out of the underworld for an uplifting -> Taste. If you only have 30 minutes to spend on this show, go for Twist -> Taste, but if you've got more time on your hands, check out Gumbo, Ghost, and Antelope too.
Score: 2
