Review by seaorgans

seaorgans This was my first show and being an arena show, the lights remain one of my most vivid memories. I'm exploring this show again via an audience recording available on the Relisten App and Archive.org.

The Julius opener has a nice, toe-tapping bounce courtesy of one J. Fishman. There is a lot of energy in this version and the crowd is clearly eating it up. The CTB that follows fits nicely in this slot. I would love to see it occupy this space in lieu of Moma on occasion.

The highlights of the first set for me are Reba and Theme. Both build to gorgeous rolling waves and who doesn't like whistling!

Disease and YEM are both crowd pleasers to begin the second set. That Simple tho...this was included in one of the Live Bait releases and with good reason. If you only listen to one part of this show, this is the hot meat.

Antelope has the tension and release you are looking for
