Review by Zwright

Zwright First set review upon relistening to a show I attended. All in all, a solid set that suffered from two key song choice mistakes; back on the train and haley's comet.

Sloth- another surprising opener. Fun.

Yem- yes! A real treat that the garden totally ate up. Great playing, listen for try yelling "oh my god" going into "boy". Page has a great effect on his solo and mike thunders. It was great to see the trampolines and even the vocal jam rocked.

Back on the train- the band had the garden hooked after yem - the show had a dark, rocking feel to it. It was therefore somewhat disappointing to hear BOTT. It just didn't fit. Wilson would have been great and would have kept Tahoe tone going.

moma>funky> maze - one of the best song series of the run. Funky bitch especially contains some serious energy and the crowd roared at the first bass drum kicks of maze whose energy tore the roof off the suck.

Roses>Haley's - two strange song choices whose happy vibe didnt really flows with the rest of the set. I remember Haley's actually being boring and truly one of the lowlights of the run.

Antelope- a great 1st set closer, though not close to the one at Superball.

A good set with some great gems - yem, funky bitch, and maze being highlights.
