VTphisherman Folks. Folks! The negativity man... For those not in the house, this show completely rocked! I was in the pit, so my perspective might differ from the lawn or webcast folks, but WOW, it was a great show. I have always thought the live sound at SPAC is so much more intense than other similar venues (Meriweather)... Maybe the acoustic panels/ballet sound, whatever it is the sound is just unreal. It took me until Divided Sky to really get in the groove, but after that it was all good. Very solid second set, maybe wanting more for exploratory jams, but the sound quality made every guitar lick sound so crisp it didn't matter. I was center/Page first set and dead in front of Mike's stacks second set so I was a dancing fool through NMINML. HUGE crowd participation throughout which maybe explains the difference in reviews between folks in the pavilion and lawn/webcast. Fuego was very solid. Light wandered and didn't really grab onto any vibe, but still, very good. Golden Age is a jam I want to hear every show. And the taste/horse/silent were gorgeous. The setlist was unexpected, but in a good way. I will be going back to SPAC again and to all the haters, you should too - just watch out for poison ivy.
