Review by EducateFright

EducateFright Wow, this is a very good show! The energy level starts out high and never lets up. SOAM and Maze are both scorching. Colonel Forbin's > Mockingbird is very well-played. This is one of the better Poor Hearts that I've heard, with some fast, spot-on soloing. Bowie, infused with Moby Dick silliness (and a vacuum solo to boot!) reminds me of the Deer Creek show they would play 7 years later – I guess the seed was planted early on. YEM rocks quite hard, and the vocal jam is outstanding: they start with a very percussive groove and eventually transition to a surprisingly well-coordinated medieval monk chant. Ya Mar is extra lively, and the band's happy mood is evident in the improvised vocals that are thrown in the mix. Lawn Boy, which Page dedicates to his parents, is easily one of the better - if not best – versions that I've heard, due primarily to Trey's sweeeet solo.
Jimmy Herring (Aquarium Rescue Unit) can really play! His style stands out in stark contrast to that of Trey, yet he manages to mesh fairly well with the rest of the band.
I highly recommend this show for the consistently high quality of playing throughout. Its good-time vibe comes through loud and clear.
