Review by TheEmu

TheEmu There are 4 highlights from this show I would like to hit, and all of them are covers. This show is all about raging covers. Normally, Fire, JJLC and GTBT wouldn't make me raise an eyebrow. But, holy crap!! First, this Fire gets all DEG on ya, and practically enters plinko-jamming territory 23 years in advance. Totally not your typical Fire. Jesus Just Left Chicago is just damn TASTY, and Trey rules it. It'll put a Trey face on yer face, for sure. So, then, Good Times Bad Times, and it freaking RIPS, ROARS, and SHREDS!! Loved it!! Finally, the recording ends with a 25 minute Whipping Post that also ventures out into DEG (this time in a wonky kind of way, though) but also has some fine moments, especially Page. There are some other nice moments, including AC/DC Bag, a typically fun Harpua, a nice tight Fluff to start things off, and even a moment where someone is heard screaming for Peaches which Fishman immediately drops in to. I don't know if that was a coincidence or if it was really like it sounded, Fish responding to the request instantly, but whatever, it was cool. Not even very many rough spots, except maybe the stand-alone Mockingbird which must have been new and had to be started twice. Another great Nectar's show. 4 Stars from me, easy.
