The fun is back in the second set with My Sweet One and Dinner/Movie. Tweezer is pretty badass. It gets really wild and heavy for a couple minutes there. The deaccelerando and return are executed well. Not surprisingly, Divided Sky is much better here as well, except that Trey seems to start to run out of ideas toward the end of the jam. Love You is good; Fish lays down a fun trombone solo. Mike's is great, lots of energy. Hydrogen is Hydrogen and then the energy picks back up in Paug, which sees some craziness from Trey (that I believe may constitute some "Machine Gun Trey", thoughts?). A polar opposites encore wraps this one up.
The energy in this show is very high and inviting. An okay jam for a fairly early Reba, a fun YEM jam/vocal jam, a nice Lizards, a nice early Tweezer, a good Divided Sky, some good 'ol fashioned Henrietta Love You, a tasty Mike's Groove, and a very interesting pairing for the encore puts this show, IMO, at about 3.3-3.5 stars. I don't think I can quite justify putting in a 4 star rating, so I'm gonna go with 3.
