Mikesgroover Wedged in between an excellent Red Rocks performance and the Memphis show that features the mind-melting Mud Island Tweezer, this Tuesday night in St. Louis gets lost in the shuffle. There’s just not much here that elevates this show beyond the pedestrian on a tour when they were regularly breaking new ground.

The composed section of Stash is kind of messy, and Trey attempts a repetitive ascending jam that never really comes together. The jam finally coalesces at around the 9 minute mark, but we’ve wasted a lot of time getting there.

A satisfying, whistling-less Reba hits the mark and then some, and the Chalkdust closer is an energetic highlight, with a subtle Dave’s Energy Guide tease. However, sticking the Fishman Terrapin segment in the first set just doesn’t work, which is why the band rarely does it.

Yet another outstanding ’95 Bowie features a familiar Mike bass line that I just can’t place. Though this version isn’t as dark or demanding as some versions a few weeks later, it’s excellent nonetheless. Hood is solid, but not memorable while Golgi is botched, leading Trey to quip “We hope you enjoyed the jazz version of Golgi Apparatus.”

The Reba is worth a listen as one of the best versions of the summer, and Bowie and Hood are both above average. Despite these moments, this is a below-average show for this tour.
