I thought the entire second set was a keeper, but the set one Antelope is smoking hot as well.
Cities is a great energy injector as an opener. Wilson is above average. And there is some interesting exploration in SOAM. And bouncing is played above average.
Tweezer although short is a great example of a Mike led jam, with Trey doing some beautiful solo work. There's only one way to go -> Llama and that's charge full speed ahead, mission accomplished. The space between Mike's and Hydrogen is a nice mellow jam, and Weekapaug has a pretty solid set of peaks towards the end. Unfortunately Lizards is pretty sloppy at times as is YEM. But nothing to get tore up about.
The encore is the polar opposite from the night before, with just an Accapella>Tweeprise mix which is fairly underwhelming. Especially compared to the amazing encore the night before.
