westbrook This show may be overlooked as it comes between the higher profile Fox Theatre and UCF shows, but it is definitely worth hearing. Good sounding AUD to boot. Let's get into it...

My Friend, My Friend is one of my favorite openers. Good version here. Energy picks up in the following Llama. Another fine rendition. Next up is BATR for some singalong time. Right back into it with Guelah Papyrus, also one of my favorites. Reba makes a big impact in the middle of the set. Excellent tension and release, give it a listen. Trey introduces Fish as "Brown, Moses Brown" before his vacuum solo in I Didn't Know. Solid versions of Taste and If I could follow. The SOAM at the end of the set is nice, but not quite a must hear version. Some chess banter precedes the set-closing Hello My Baby. Good first set. I like the song selection and Reba is damn good.

A Curtain opener usually means good things are coming. Well, this Tweezer definitely fits the bill and then some. It has a Free-like jam section and also goes through a melodic segment with Trey playing some really nice stuff. You should hear this Tweezer. Keyboard Army and Sample serve as a nice interlude before a great Slave. Trey really builds the tension and delays the peak, making the release all the better. Fishman humorously forgets the lyrics in Cracklin Rosie, but that's why we love him. The set ends in style with a thrilling Possum>Tweezer Reprise combo. This Possum is dynamic and crazy with teases, a Simpsons signal, and Trey scatting. Fire encore-no complaints.

Solid show, probably rated about right at 3.8, maybe could go a little higher. The highlights of the show are Reba, SOAM, Tweezer, Slave, and Possum.
