TheEmu The jams in the first set, namely Reba, Mike's and Weekapaug, are dissonant and not very enjoyable, IMHO. Most of the rest of set I is pretty average, I think, although the Hydrogen is a bit spotty. The second set picks up it's game a little bit, on the strength of a pretty good Magilla, a YEM that rips pretty good for a while, and a Whipping Post encore which takes an interesting detour to start the second jam. The Stash, however, is really messy. I was thinking two stars after the Stash, but the YEM and Whipping Post I think do enough to nudge this back to three stars, if just barely.
Score: 1
