Review by Feetoid

Feetoid I really thought "No Man's" was going to get the treatment at Dicks but unfortunately no such luck. Honestly this might have been one of, if not the most lackluster version all tour.

Melt still needs work. It sounded like it had potential at the start of the jam and I'm glad they're nailing the composed sections again, but Trey needs to stop it with the disorganized "whale call" shit. I love this song so much, please fix it guys!

Going out of order here but Winterqueen was really nice thank god, highlight of the set. Of course they played Roggae towards the end of this ill fated first act. They can do no wrong with this bad boy they've got it so down (listen to this summers 7/25 Forum version).

Character Zero seemed like forced energy but I'm just glad it wasn't used as an encore again.

The continuity of the 2nd set was pretty solid, albeit with only one ->. Good thing Twist took the back seat to CDT too (duration wise). Is it just me or has Twist been used as the marquee jam too many times this summer? Great segue between the two nonetheless and in the tradition of Dicks, great CDT jam.

Mercury was awesome at this show (as it damn well should have been, I heard it twice while playing frisbee in the practice fields). I'd even go as far to say that its jam chart worthy. I was at Bend and Alpine (and I played frisbee in the practice fields) so I've heard every Mercury and they definitely keep getting better. Trey sounds perfect at the end of this version though. Beautiful dark soloing, I loved it so much live and I've replayed it a ton. This will be a nifty segue song for sure, as it seems like its already easy for them to get in and out of without stopping. I had it stuck in my head for the remainder of the weekend.

Another great 2nd set Wingsuit. Say what you want about this slow song but I love it and the little jam at the end sounded great on that Dicks dance floor.

I rocked out to Rock and Roll and the nice 3 song encore after, but the main thing I took from this show is the fact that Mercury's rising.
