fhqwhgads I wasn't there! So my opinion may be irrelevant, but my hair is a bird, for what it's worth. I like the vibe of the first set more, upon a close relisten. Simple is grand, I could groove to the Dogs... Just, as I said, a good vibe. The Gin impressed me much more the first time I heard it, but that doesn't mean it's gotten worse (how could it?), it just means I'm in a different set and setting this go'round. The second set is a bit darker--or, more favorably, a bit more experimental--than the first's happy-go-lucky everybody have a logical time vibe, IMO. I love the setlist for the second set, though, and there's a really interesting groove segment in Ghost: the quasi-stop-start action, if you know what I'm talking about. Maybe fishing for woos that aren't audible on the soundboard recording? No Men in No Man's Land rejuvenates the set after a tentative Harry Hood with a portion that I'll contend is Type II. First Tube encore feels good 'cause it feels good. Great but somewhat wonky first day of Magnaball. Take my opinion with a grain of your preferred seasoning ;)
