This show was fantastic. Great energy and vibe, with most everyone thinking about Hampton and the return coming up the next year. TAB was very tight throughout the night. The "Push on" opener set the mood as it was deep long and tight. "Backwards", "Sitting in Limbo" and "Burlap Sack & Pumps" were also perfect. At various points in jams you can hear Trey get dirty and wet with an envelope filter or digital wah on his guitar. Real dirty, and real wet. Very nice auds are out there for folks who want to see what they missed out on. Easily one of my favorite Trey solo shows.

This was also the last night I got to hang out with my friend Sean Riznikove, who died unexpectedly and far too young. RIP buddy.
