andrewrose This show was a bit of a mixed bag, ultimately, but the highlights are definitely worth hearing. After a somewhat underwhelming Sample, Funky Bitch start to the show, the Cool It Down, Roggae, Heavy Things sequence featured a lot of interesting jamming and awesome performances. Cool It Down had an extended funky jam and Roggae was bent inside out, eventually raging by the end. Heavy Things features some of Trey's most agile and well chosen phrasing of both Worcester shows. Momentum in set 1 was up and down after that (including an enthusiastic Roses that seemed to beg for a little jam treatment to no avail).

The Seven Below->What's the Use in Set II is terrific. Absolutely gorgeous jam in Seven Below. Someone brought a What's the Use sign to the show on this night, and Trey began quoting it in the Seven Below jam, eventually bringing things down and starting the song in earnest. Otherwise Bowie showed some signs of life to end the set (though nowhere near the beauty they delivered on 10/30 a couple months prior in Atlantic City).

To sum up, must hear: Cool It Down, Roggae, Heavy Things, Seven Below->What's the Use. Optional hear: the rest.
