Bob_Loblaw Set one of this show is mostly a novelty set. Sweet Virginia is a pretty cool and out of left field debut to kick off a show. The horns are a very cool and unique show. The highlights to my ear are Cars, Trucks, And Buses and Mozambique which as a very creole touch to it, perfect for the area and venue. For the most part it's a pretty average first set though, nothing groundbreaking.

Set two kicks of with Twist that slips into a kind of floating dreamscape, before Trey charges it into the finish line to a fine conclusion. The Piper is absolutely top shelf and likely deserves more credit. It is your typical slow build Piper but with a very heavy touch courtesy of Trey and Fish, it is a version any fan of the song needs to hear. Mountains in the Mist & Heavy Things work as a soft core to the set which works pretty well. DWD stretching to the typical type one Trey shredding but with a slight hint at what was to come at Big Cypress.

Meatstick > Rocky Top encore is a good one two punch as an encore.

Overall a fairly solid show. Not stepping outside of any conventional bounds but none the less the guys did their thing well.
