Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez I was not at this show, but this might overtake the first night of the gorge as my favorite show of the year. uncle penn was a nice first set treat, not having been since since deer creek 2000... wow it'd been that long! sanity, foam, walk away, vultures, and a solid melt were are really nice first set scores.

the 2nd set really lights up. this seven below>ghost is without a doubt, the jam of the year. to me, seven below is like light, in that the "song" portion does not do too much for me, but these jams are amazing. i'll be brief, there are other good reviews on this jam here, but they really played as a great collective unit. i saw the 30 minute alpine 04 7 below, but this one has a touch more intensity and focus behind it. after slipping into ghost, they slip back into a jam very similar to the seven below jam. after working through some nice seven below teases and good jamming this one sort of peters out.

after that, they drop another rare treat in Cool it down. the rest of this set works well, but after the monster opening jam, everything else is gravy.

great show from start to finish. this and syracuse might be the gems of the fall tour.
