lumpblockclod The first set of this show is entirely forgettable (and a great example that rarities alone don't necessarily make for a good set), with the exception of the hilarious world premiere of "Party Time." Otherwise, the set seemed to completely lack any flow and there's really not a single memorable jam. Worse, the second set picked up where the first left off. But then something lit a spark under them and "46 Days" turns out to be not just the highlight of the show, but one of the better jams of the entire tour. They continued the momentum with a beautiful "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'" and a solid "Hood." Still not the best show, but the closing trio should definitely be heard.
