Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Making their way up the East Coast, the band finds a handful of really beautiful musical moments in the second set. MFMF has a slightly unusual ending, with a segment featuring only kick drum and piano before moving into Dog Faced Boy.

Simple is pleasant, but I struggled to pick up the teases mentioned in the notes -- if they're there, they're really subtle.

The Bowie is yet another outstanding version, with the Take Me to the River jam rising naturally out of the first jam section. It's more of a brief tease with some lyrics than a full on "debut", but the short interlude only helps the momentum -- the remainder of Bowie continues furiously, building to a blistering frenzy before the final notes.

Ya-Mar is better than usual, with a nice percussive segment that makes this version stand out. The other high point of the second set is a beautiful jam at the end of Mike's song that bleeds into Keyboard Army.

The crowd loved the Suspicious Minds and obligatory Carolina, but nothing musically rises above the ordinary for the rest of the show.
