Review by Mike_

Mike_ Ok so this is my first review and first live show. I have couched toured most of the other shows this summer but this is my first live show. First of all WOW!! These guys are good. My friend made me choose between tonight or last night and I chose the second. (Good choice).
The Music:
Free has been a favorite of mine, so I was psyched when I heard it as the opener (which I had called). The Moma, was nice and funky to get the night rolling. The possum was a nice bluegrassy version that had everyone pumped. Roggae wouldn't have been my first choice but it fit as a nice mid set breather before the hot Stash and BOTT. The Sugar Shack was very well executed and had a nice solo from Trey but The Line sounded rushed and sloppy. Then Ocelot, the Joy's The Line, kicked in and had the same effect. The Squirming Coil ended the set with an emotional piece from Page and set up what would be an incredible set 2.
I was excited when I heard Trey play the opening of Mikes because Hydrogen was another one of my favorite songs but the 46 days was languid and hot. The -> to Weekapaug was one of the best I've ever heard. Weekapaug started nice and went into nice type I jamming until it came back to the original melody. Then, before our eyes, Trey left his guitar! He wound his way to the marimba, and we went crazy. From my seat I could see seasoned phans start looking confused. Then, Mike breaks out the guitar and we literally felt the ground shake with his face-melting psychedelia. By the time Fuego started 17 minutes had passed. The Fuego was a little off key but didn't blast off. The slave was when I understood, how after thirty years, people still didn't get old of shows. The whine of trey against the velvet of Page against the sly ease of Mike, it just all fit. Also was a pretty fun, trippy event that gave way to the melancholy of Walls. Monkey -> Rocky top was a fun way to celebrate my first show. All and all, I will see you at Summer tour!
