Review by Frankster

Frankster Let me begin by saying this venue was amazing! Chill security, little traffic in the beer line or bathrooms and stellar acoustics!!! All of the AUD versions I've heard are prestine! 24 songs makes this one of the longest shows of the year. Although 7/4 gets all of the attention this show is much more solid top to bottom. Ok lets get to it shall we?

Character Zero- I love this as an opener! Lets be honest this song had worn out it's welcome. This version is lively and immediatly whips the crowd into a frenzy. Lets hope this happens again soon.

Destiny>- I might of crapped my pants! First time so it was special and sounded great taboot. The nice little jam sandwiched in the verses is pretty sweet.

Rift- Wow what year is it? Great version!

McGrupp- Just shit my pants again! There are no bad versions of this one so . . .

Gin- GReat jamming on this one. Solid, very solid.

Mountains- I'm really liking this one. Very mellow with a floaty rythm.

Gumbo> Short but sweet. I love when they stretch this one out but it gets cut off for MSO.

MSO- Best 2 minutes of bluegrass you'll ever hear. Just kidding it was fine though.

Stealing time- What a great song. Heavy, Deep and retrospective for most. This song will grow into a monster by next year.

Strange design- I haven't heard it since clifford ball I think or at least I can't remember. Lovely as always.

Sanity- Heard it in Albany last year have now lost my sanity once again.

Antelope- Nothing crazy here but everyone loves Antelope :)

How do top the first set you ask? . . . .

R&R>- . . . thats how. My favorite opener along with Drowned. This one smokes especially the last 4-5 minutes.

Caspian>- I heard a lot of moans at the opening chords but you know what? You cheated yourself out of a great rendition. Caspian can zap the momentum on occasion but this isn't one of them. Beautiful! the transition into Tweezer will give you the willies. Trust me.

Tweezer>- Tight, Funky, SICK!!! Not long but very creative and fresh. My favorite song of the night.

Slave- Best version in over 15 years! $$$

Bouncing- if you were hating Caspian then you problably slashed your wrists when Mike started this one. I liked the call though. Stuffed a phatty and was ready to go for the 4th quarter.

Possum- solid

Backwards>- My favorite song off of Joy. Tight jam man I couldn't d stop dancing. Great jam. Bravo!

Hood>- A sign of a great show. Thought it was the closer but I was wrong once again.

Loving Cup- Best choice for a closer!

E: Monkey>Tweezer Reprise- Sent us into the lot happy as clams. Baked Clams that is.
