Review by songchaser

songchaser HNPAY was performed and reprised throughout the first set.

First set was the tits. HMPAY was a triple decker cheesecake. Second set was sublime sweet and sour. Cities encore was the raspberry filling on top. What a show!

Gordo and the rhythm section were in the pocket all night. Robert and Scott were let loose and wild. The sound mix was excellent. We were "lucky" to catch the new MGB near the end of the tour where they have had some time to gel together. I suspect this is the band Mike has been waiting/searching for and will become a well known quality/quantity.

And it's telling that many of us were having the same thought, asking ourselves if this was better than Phish. Don;t take this as 'blasphemy' but yes, last night MGB were better than Phish. I do not generally like comparing, but on a quantitative scale last nights show was a 9.5. With Phish performing fewer and fewer shows per year, MGB is now the major project in Mike's musical life. As it should be. He's put together something special

To those folks seeing the last few shows of the tour you are in luck, Bring no expectations, wear your dancing shoes and prepare for a juggernaut.

Review by BrotherOpener

BrotherOpener I agree with much of Songchasers review! This show was funky and tight throughout. This is the chillest MGB I have seen. Robert Walter may be the missing third head of this musical Ghidra.

It is time to recognize that Mike Gordon has put together a strong and diverse song catalog. Their is enough good material for a multi night run (come on Mike, I know you love Portland!! How about a multi night weekend run in autumn 2016?)

Highly recommend catching this band while they are tearing it up. Thanks for reading. -Brother Opener
