Review by westbrook

westbrook I like the first set a lot. Walfredo continued the theme of bust outs from the day before. The Curtain With, being one of my favorite songs, is a nice addition to the set. Maze and Roggae both include very good jams. The set-ending Mike's Groove is great. Mike's Song is typically hard rocking. The following Simple is short and sweet, and Saw It Again emerges from a spacey ending. I really like Saw It Again, so this works for me. Having not played been it in a while, Esther is understandably sloppy, but Weekapaug Groove is very good. Mike's bass intro is great and the funky jam in the song is my favorite part of the first set.

The second set is a little short, but it has its moments. Timber has a nice, delicate jam. AC/DC Bag is standard. Col. Forbin's Ascent>Mockingbird is a crowd pleaser and features some interesting narration from Trey about the band's upcoming hiatus. Twist is nice and bluesy. Sand's jam is mostly ambient, with Trey playing in the background and it also sounds like he spends most of the jam on his keyboard. It's very different from present day Sands. Two covers end the show, A day in the Life and Emotional Rescue. Emotional Rescue included an odd interpretative dance from Trey and Mike. Check out the video of the encore at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_hKkQHOnOs . I rated this show as 4 stars because of the strength of the first set.
