ac/dc bag: we were in the lawn for this show, and everyone around us seemed to be begging for this song after being ignored at both deer creek and alpine. well, the boys delivered a very sharp take on this classic.
1st tube: this kept the energy up. they sure were playing this one a lot on this tour, but hell, what's one more time?! good version
limb by limb: i was happy to see this one land in the first set as opposed to the 2nd. i thought it was a given, but i wasnt really in the mood for it on this night. by the end of this version, i was into. standard but sharp version.
nicu: always a favorite. leo played it. good version.
roses are free: alright, a little WEEN! they didn't do anything crazy here, but it sure was nice to catch this tune.
wolfman's brother: good funky 2000 version. they started to hit some bluesy jamming before dropping into...
my soul: good bluesy version. nice 2000 pairing with wolfman's
julius: not my favorite song. i find it to be a little cheesey, but this one fit well.
down with disease: this one was a monster. they came out of the song blazing, hitting on all cylindars. then they moved on to some nice spacey realms. upon building the jam back up, i thought they were going to bring it to the old dwd ending, but then they turned the vibe on its head.
wmggw: this is one of the best segues i have seen. from a sheerly musical standpoint, this is the best seque i saw all summer... even better than the dwd/moby dick. as for wmggw, this was a good version, with, of course, an excellent trey solo.
makisupa: good cool down after a hot opening pairing
piper: now, it's time to cut loose again. piper did its thing, very successfully, before sliding into...
the mango song: didnt see this one coming! they tacked a really nice reggae jam on the backside of this song. they were playing have mercy, then they dipped into...
Bug: AWWW SSSHHHIIIITTT!!! really, how are you going to go from playing have mercy to goddamn bug! as i have mentioned in other reviews, this song and caspian blow my mind, in that i cannot believe people like these 2 tunes. they could've played have mercy!! Come on!! almost ten years later and this still bothers me...
yem: alright....that's better at least. this was a pretty standard version circa 2000. they could've picked something worse... like bug
loving cup: come on, i want to hear something different.... anything but loving cup, anything but loving cup...doh! good cup though. they ended the tour in rousing fashion.
the first set was solid and well paced. the down with disease more than made up for anything that i did not like later in the set. good show, really couldve done without bug. at least, don't tease have mercy. in the words of eric cartman, "you build me up only to knock me down!"
1st set: roses are free, wolfman's>my soul
2nd set: dwd>wmggw (must hear), makisupa, mango>bug(just so you can hear what i'm bitching about!)
