GAphishin This show was one of my Sunday, screen door open correcting papers shows...
Holy moly is this show grand! An opening Fluffhead could be a claim of immediate grandiosity or a risky endeavor for a warmup song lends itself to grandiosity! Riding a Spinal Tap-like Wilson into a gorgeous REBA jam. A Walk Away that blows up in its apex right smack into a hairy Wolfman's. Animalizing a Possum...I must note that as I am now a Southeastern show-goer after being from the PAcific Northwest for ten years, I have always noticed a different feel to the show audiences - Eastcoast are there to party, Noerthwesterners are there to MUPPETIZE! This Nikon show feels ALOT more like a MUPPET SHOW than most east coast shows do to me.
The Boys were there to Gorge themselves in New York!
The second set opens with the rare Lengthwise as the catapault for Maze as it is done on one the greatest studio records: RIFT!
A well placed Mikes with a monster tight jam with a SIMPLE to begin a four song mediation between the Mikes Song and Weekapaugh. I am a huge fan of Simple as it is more difficult to get one since Coventry. WELL PLAYED GENTLEMEN!
Dropping into Backwards was seamless and this version tells a little tale about where Backwards can go when they choose to open it up!
Prince Caspian is a great result of the Backwards jam and I can imagine Kuroda's yellows, oranges and reds flooding the audience in this entrance. A Rock N Roll that was teased early on comes to fruition and into the Weekapaugh payoff.
The Buzz of this Clean Loving cup earns its honor in this tremendous set. Not a single downturn, and a guaranteed hope that you went to the bathroom at set break...cause there is not a single good time in set two.
This is a tremendous show!
