Bob_Loblaw The guys playing there best and having a blast.

I can't think of very many shows where it's obvious how much fun the guys are having. Between the banter and comedic qualities to this show it's obvious. But you also have to stack the precise and powerful playing on top of it.

DWD is very short but somehow very inspired in it's playing. N02 is an excellent bustout. Stash is especially intense. Lizards is very polished and strong. Excellent Maze PAGE IS ON FIRE!. The whole rest of the set is so well played but for '94 that's standard.

Antelope kicks things off chaotic as hell. They weave in and out of Catapult seamlessly and having a ton of fun while doing it. Antelope comes back with full force for an excellent conclusion. Without getting into too much detail it's safe to say Harpua is one of the very best. Bag is very strong. Hood is absolutely gorgeous and well played, it's a top tier all time version. The slow movement towards the peak is so patient and beautiful it almost brings tears to the eyes. Trey ends it in fierce style. CDT has some excellent Barracuda teases towards the end as he finishes burning down the barn.

Suzy encore? Standard. But it doesn't matter!

Overall one of the best of the best from 1994. It's got excellent playing, bustouts, HARPUA, as well as a lot of fun comedic elements. It's got it all except maybe some deep jams, but this show isn't about that. It's about having a great time.
