n00b100 A genuinely impressive show from Summer '94. Set 1 is perfectly fine until they get to Reba, which starts off as plain old Reba before Mike and Fish combine to give us a really nifty and powerful groove that enriches our lives for a few glorious minutes until the band drops right back into the Reba jam without missing a beat and builds to a screaming, wicked climax. The other highlight of the set comes in the closing Bowie, which mixes in an odd tease of the Munsters theme and then launches into a usual powerful mid-90s Bowie jam. Set 2 features a wild Tweezer that starts off with some weirdness (Trey playing a simplistic riff with the band offering spartan accompaniment) before leaping into a HYHU jam, swinging back into a usual (for '94) big-rockin' Tweezer jam, switches up to a weird jazzy beat, swings *back* to a usual (for '94) big-rockin' Tweezer jam, pulls out the 2001 "chorus" out of nowhere (seriously, what the hell?), then just sorta ends up in Lawn Boy with a shrug of the shoulders. Tweezer could give you whiplash in 1994 and they still weren't quite ready to go super-deep yet, but the best parts of this jam are as fun as anything else from the year. CDT steps up next, and instead of ending rolls right into BBFCFM > Sample > BBFCFM (a weird pairing that somehow works), then the show ends with a superb Hood that builds in a more interesting manner than your garden-variety Hood and peaks in very fine fashion. The extended acoustic encore is also neat as well. A very fine show with some tremendous jams - one of the best of the summer, in fact.
