Bob_Loblaw What an awesome show!

Set one starts off as an all out funk fest with an Extra Funky Wolfman, Sally, & Tube. I can't think of too many shows that have a 3 song pairing of funk quite like this. Mike is laying it down the whole time. Roggae is noticeably powerful as Trey adds a lot of character to it. Maze is great and leads to gigantic peak as it should. Wading is in a bizarre slot but Trey seems to want it so it works. Hood is a very solid cap to the set with some very inspired guitar work by Trey.

Set 2 starts with the odd pair of Farmhouse and Heavy Things, very normal for first set but not the second. But that is ok because Farmhouse is fantastic, one of the best versions I've heard. And heavy Things? Well it's the same one you'll get for the next year. Tweezer is the typical slow funk you come to expect from this year and it morphs into a looping decay feedback frenzy. The segue into Makisupa is pretty cool, it's one of those "How did they get there?" type of segues. YEM is played very well. Solid after jam with what appears to be a longer than usual vocal jam. Everything is solid.

Average Encore.

Front to back this show is very strong and carries very little flaws. It has energy, fun, and inspired playing. I like.
