funkalunk Well I'm on the train home, what better way to pass the time than jotting down first impressions on my phone.

Set 1:
The surprise Free opener was solid, nothing too extraordinary, but solid. This is (mostly) a recurring theme here. Every song in this list was a pretty good reading, but few went above/beyond. Luckily, a few did! Gin got crazy at the end, oh hell, was crazy the whole time, and Contact always puts a smile on my face. (Though I'm just being biased)

A rocking set, but nothing to write home about.

Set 2:
Birds through R&R was an absolute ride that was over in a blink. They just could not stop rocking, and were having a blast. (Sidenote: Was very close to Page (Rage side), and never noticed how much of a goof/ham he is until now. So awesome!) Sadly the rest of the set simply petered out, but maybe this is my pure hatred of Bug talking. Who knows?

Two awesome songs that rocked like they always do, and the inevitable Tweprise. They delivered here.

Well night one was a blast, have a few more ahead of us.

Disclaimer: Yes, this is written not an hour post-show. Yes, my thoughts will change with repeated listenings. This is just a time capsule for my own benefit to compare with later feelings.

Enjoy the run guys!
