n00b100 Now that time has allowed this show to settle a bit into memory, we can see it more as a fine example of how strong Fall 2010 was than as any kind of life-changing experience or truly Great Show (although if you were there, that obviously changes things). The Tweezer/Zeppelin fest (as fun as its reputation) is the obvious drawing point, as is the surprisingly dramatic set-opening Tube and a 24-karat gold 2001/Bowie with some sprightly playing in the former and beautiful major-minor key shifts in the latter. But don't miss out on the first set, CDT -> amusingly shoehorned in Whole Lotta Love as teaser for Set 2 > CDT aside - there's a very fine Wolfman's that mixes in a surprise vocal jam, a nifty Manteca-esque bouncing beat (from a tour where Manteca popped up in the most unexpected places), and a sharp rhythmic funkiness all throughout, a great segue into Undermind, and a very nice Type I Gin that recalls 2013's strong Type I Gins. There are other shows you should start with when dipping into 2010, but this one is well worth your time, especially if you enjoy songs about hobbits and the bedding of fair maidens.
