Well, this one has been swept under the rug altogether, and that's a crying shame. Granted, the first set is nothing special, unless you're a Pavement fan. The first and last performance of "Gold Soundz" was a treat for those of us in the know, but otherwise there's not too much to report from Set 1.
Set II, however, is a completely different story. Why, you ask? "Simple" -> "My Left Toe" -> "Jam", that's why. About a half hour of music that gets completely undermined by the way "Mike's" > "Simple" > "My Left Toe" > "Caspian" looks on paper. Hidden gem, plain and simple. The "My Left Toe" comes out of the "Simple" jam so effortlessly that more than half the crowd didn't even notice it. And the jam out of "My Left Toe" is full of melodic Mike, patient Page, fantastic Fish and glory Trey. You should hear this.
