waxbanks If you haven't heard it, don't hesitate to seek out this Light/Chalkdust/Slave combo. Since the return, Light has unquestionably been the band's most promising jam vehicle, never less than an adrenalized jam tune and on several occasions (e.g. Gorge 8/7/09, Festival 8, 12/2/09 MSG, Gorge 8/7/10, Super Ball IX, UIC 8/15/11, et al.) a springboard to thrilling experimental playing. This is the most abstract of them all, devolving from impossibly dense wall-of-rock textures to futuristic factory floor noise - for full flavour, pair it with the mindblowing DJ Shadow-like Rock'n'Roll > Meatstick > Boogie On from the previous weekend. But don't sleep on the Chalkdust! It's an unusual rendition, not an all-time classic by any stretch but a special treat given how rarely Chalkdust gets weird.

The rest of the show is standard Summer '11 fun, as I recall. Oh, and/but: 46 Days is a *smoker.*
