TheEmu Many if not most of the songs in this show are at least a little shaky in the composed sections. At the same time, though, almost all of the jams are solid, the Weekapaug freakin' smokes, and Bowie is pretty excellent, too, though it goes into a trippy kinda march thing for a while. After those two jams in the first set, I was hopeful about set II, but there wasn't anything really spectacular, unless you count Whipping Post which is spectacularly awful in a Henrietta kinda way. So I don't think I'll go higher than three stars for this.

cjfphan21 This is another nasty Weekapaug. Solid jam. David Bowie was good, despite the couple of drops in the recording. The jam gets a little strange, but it finishes well. A raging Possum closes out the set. Other than that there's not much to say for the first set. A lot of songs, mostly well played, but nothing special.

Divided Sky is okay. The beginning is a little sketch here and there, but good for the most part. Trey isn't perfect in the jam/build section, but most of his long notes hold really well, with a couple of exceptions. Very well played Caravan - I haven't heard this in a while. Page gets down in My Sweet One. Good Lizards. YEM starts off pretty shaky. Trey seems to be struggling at the beginning of the jam and the jam turns out to be very short. Vocal jam is pretty average. Doodie. I liked the Curtis. The Fish show in Whipping Post. Golgi to close it out.

This is pretty much just a standard show. Nothing too great, but nothing too awful either. 3 stars
