Review by TweezingSpaceRanger

TweezingSpaceRanger Easily the best show of the tour so far. The first set has great flow, song selection, tight playing, and the return of wombat. The second set is just butter. Disease gets to some exciting paces, Fuego steps outside the box briefly, Ghost is the highlight of the show (Jesus Trey...), Scents is just an incredible song with a more melodic jam than the psychedelic 2015 versions, and that lands perfectly into light where Trey catches a cool riff before they treat us to Manteca. Finally No Quarter and Fluff provide great contrast between each other to end a thriller of a show.
No doubt 2016 is a down year compared to 2015, but hey, 2015 was a peak year for a reason. Not much can live up to that. However, it is great to see the band is finally catching their stride. It's too bad they only have three shows before they take a month off. Better late than never!
