Llama rocks for a good start. Foam has some rough moments and feedback early on as we get the sound EQ'd. Very dynamic jam, but a rushed end. Poor Heart was solid. Stash was just ok tonight, nothing too special. Glide was well played into a triple shot of new Rift material. All well played. Next would be the high point for me, as I love a good Forbin story. Great story from Trey tonight and a really good Mockingbird to follow. Cavern is a solid closer, with lots of laughter during the lyrics from Trey. Crazy stuff going on in the crowd? Great first set!
After mentioning squashed people, Suzy leads off second set. Nothing too special. Bowie's intro has the usual antics, and what was Mike doing between sets? He is all over the place in Bowie itself. Esther also sounds tentative. Trey even slips a word or two. A long Possum breaks the spell and lets them just jam. Ice is really weak tonight. Needs more polishing. Page to the rescue in a nicely played Coil. Trey asks the crowd to be dead quiet for Carolina with the usual shushing. Hood was pretty well played. Maybe a few bumps here and there. On to another version of Faht by Fishman. These are much more subdued than his usual rowdiness. Trey makes the HYHU rowdy instead. YEM has its problems early on, but the jam makes you forget all about that. Nice Mike solo at the end. The past three vocal jams have ended with the church choir harmonizing. New trend in vocal practice? Anyway, ok second set.
Double encore tonight starts off with a cool Fee. Very mellow with megaphone verses. Rocky Top is on fire! So fast they almost fall off the horse.
Nice show overall tonight. A few rough songs in there. The Forbin's story is worth the listen!
