Review by Penn42

Penn42 Big fan of this show. If 6.7's raucous party of a second set hadn't signaled the beginning of summer terr, the jam in Roses sure as hell did. Once they wrap the song and drop into that chugga-chugga-chugga pulsing ain't-no-cares-in-the-world beat you just knew summer terr was on like donkey kong. The beginning 60 seconds of the jam are perhaps the most joyous of the whole summer. If you listen to the AUD's it's no secret the crowd was feelin' it.

Besides that first set highlight, the out of left-field plinko-y Sand -> Nellie Kane segue is off-the-wall fun and Character Zero is as dirty as the song is likely to get. Trey's guitar sounds like it's a growling monster ascending from the depths. It's gnarly shit, indeed. Oh, and this 2001 is easily the best of 3.0.

I can't sit here and tell you this is one of the best shows of the summer, to warrant such a description it would need one BIG marquee moment, but this is a finely played show with many subtle (and some not so subtle) oddities. I endorse this show without hesitation. It's numerous, if not mostly brief, quirks far outweigh any singular detractor I could find.
