DriedupGoliath To be added to the setlist notes, possibly? Some pretty funny stage banter.
After Nellie Kane, and before Amazing Grace, Trey tells the crowd "One more little thing here, we're getting rid of things, we're gonna do one here without any instruments, then the next one we're gonna do naked."

westbrook Check out the excellent YEM in the second set of this "average-great" show.

kipmat This show opens with an unusually-jammed AC/DC Bag. Trey begins with a rhythmic strum of the strings to count in the song, and the whole band adds improvisational touches in the style of August '93. Mike has his effects turned on for the solo section, adding a new dynamic that prompts Trey to hang on and develop his solo a bit more. This version is definitely an evolutionary step towards the 11/22/97 second set masterpiece.
Other highlights from Seattle include another terrific Stash, Possum, and IMO the best YEM of the tour.
Score: 1
