fluffhead108 Very strong first and fourth quarters, with something to please pretty much any style of fan.

Although this first set can't stand toe-to-toe with the absurdly good stuff the band has been doing with this tour's opening frames, the opening trio of Gumbo>KDF>BOTT is excellent. Gumbo, in particular, is a tune that seems to perfectly fit their style right now. Same goes for Waiting All Night, which once again is phenomenally well played.

Q4 is really where the money is, though. Disease is the jam of the night, and although I think their other primary jam vehicles have outpaced DWD, they nonetheless Bring It once again here. Sand begins with excellent, minimalist funk that has Trey playing around with echoes and effects, before resuming the standard Sand build-up. Joy is as strong as ever here (is it just me or are they just killing the softer ballads this tour?!) and YEM closes things out as only YEM can.

This show is sure to get lower-tier status considering how strong Summer 2015 is, but don't skip it. When the band is at this level of peak playing, the only response it so gobble up as much of it as we possibly can.
