waxbanks Every inch as good as the justly-lauded show on 8/15: the playing is absolutely inspired and unconventional throughout, from Limb (best since the 'golden hose' on 6/19/04?) through maybe the year's best versions of sparse-Twist, passionate-BDTNL, disco-YEM (giant B'n'D duet), songlike-Theme, and...yes...FrankenDisease. This headlining DWD is happily reminiscent of the classic Seven Below > Ghost from late '09 in Albany: heavy on enveloping textures and discrete jam movements, miles away from the blissful serenity of 6/3/11.

Weird Chalkdust and a heart-tugging Let It Loose to boot. What a jam-packed show! Don't limit yourself to the Disease - there's so much empathy, adventurous spirit, and seemingly effortless group creativity on display here.
