TheEmu This show isn't as tight as some, especially the second set, in which Reba, Foam, YEM and Divided Sky all have mild to semi-significant flubbage. The Possum is fairly blistering, and the Destiny is quite a bit tighter than the last one I listened to (9/22/90). Beyond that, though, I think this show is average at best, including a Bowie that kind of limps and staggers in sections before finishing strong, and the Divided Sky encore (how many DS encores are out there?) where they seem to have lost a lot of energy. Not a bad show, just nothing spectacular. For highlights, I guess I'd say the Bowie and YEM, as well as the announcement from Trey that if you want to learn how to really dance to The Lizards, you need to watch Chevy Chase in European Vacation. Three stars straight up.
