Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw A fairly average show. The placement near the beginning of tour for the gorge may have been slightly disappointing as the anticipation for a Gorge show is always palpable, and the band always has a little rust to shake off.

Set 1 is pretty much as straight forward as you can get for 99' you got your LXL and Guyute which were beat to the ground during this year. The opening 1-2 punch with Tube>Funky Bitch is a great way to start a show even if it is straightforward. The highlight being a slightly extended free to close the set.

Set 2 features the atypical 2nd or 3rd show of the tour "Stretching Their Legs" type of jamming. Nothing goes too deep but the boys are pushing nearly every song in the set to a jam. A great debut of Sand which in it's standard fashion makes for a nice long type 1 vessel. Meatstick is pretty rough and is likely compounded for people who followed them all summer as another song beaten to the ground all year. Caspian>Hood is likely the star of the show adding some beauty and color to the end of the show.

Overall pretty average but nothing to complain about 3/5.
