User_25667_ Set I:

Bag opener was standard but rocking. A nice way to lead off the show. Ditto for Moma. Ditto for Axilla. Ditto for Meatstick, although I was pleasantly surprised at its appearance this early in the show. Although I'm not going into much detail for each of these tunes - there was nothing really unusual or extraordinary about any of them - they were all performed well and were energetic. Kill Devil Falls was a first-set highlight. It was spirited and on-point. SOAMule was excellent. Nice to see Fish on the marimba. Page, though, was the real star here. His contribution on keys was strong. Timber>My Friend was fantastic. Halfway was a nice breather. Maze was ridiculous. Character Zero was standard.

Set II:

I was proud to call the Crosseyed opener. It was a superb version, although the transition into this rendition's second "movement" was a bit shaky. The segue to Light also seemed forced at the time, but I'll have to re-listen to verify. I was very pleased by the segue into Golden Age. It was nice to see them take that song into a (hopefully) new direction. Birds was also performed well. I'm always excited to hear Halley's, but like many phans, I'm constantly hoping for the band to do something different with it - that is, jam. Possum was my predicted show opener, and I was happy to see it tonight. The audience was obviously excited, too. Bug was performed very well, as was Heavy Things, although the latter's position in the show was strange. I felt YEM coming as the set closer. Some flubs in the composed section, although Trey hit The Notes strongly. The instrumental jam was average, but the vocal jam was superior.


Standard Joy. Strong First Tube, which was a perfect way to send us out into the cold Rochester night.

I think orangeman91's score of 7/10 is fair. The first set was mostly above average. Second set and encore were average.
