Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Yet another 99' with a series of extremely solid songs strung together around average ones.

SOAM is absolutely fantastic and packs a tremendous punch for the 12 minute length it is. It is followed by a fantastic hazy Drowned that drifts into bliss jam as it will several times after this show. This pair of songs is followed by the go to (in 99') Back on the Train and Birds of a feather which have nothing extra but are well played. Theme is another above average version.

Carini does it's thing to kick you in the ass starting the second set. This is followed by likely the best version to date of Bug, it gets stretched out to 10 minutes. What gets stretched is the very essence of the song, it's just absolutely beautiful and a must hear for any fan of bug. Vultures has some flubbery but overall is average. Limb By Limb is well the same version they played all summer nothing more or less.

Why don't they play Will it Go Round in Circles? anymore? Only two times? Come on guys bust this one out! So high energy reminiscent of a well above average version of Funky Bitch or Boogie on A Reggae Woman.

The Antelope that closes the set is complete and utter destruction. And I do not mean that in a negative way. It is everything you want in an Antelope, pure tension and release the whole mid section. It builds to tremendous peaks as Trey shreds at the top of his game. A must hear for any Antelope fan.

Throughout the 2nd set I can hear a voice shouting for Reba (an odd second set choice) but I digress, I do not know if the band heard them but they got their wish. And it is above average.

Overall peaks and valleys like most shows from this year. But overall it has must hear versions of some fan favorites so check it out!
