Review by BigWackenhut

BigWackenhut First set was on a comparable level to night 1. They Breezed through composed portions of Reba- not a given for probably 2 decades now. Everything was sharply played and worth at least another spin.

The second set was not as tumescent as night 1. I'd prefer a more exploratory journey but this was still a good show. The jams were white hot. the opposition party who wants to singalong and strut out of stride to a virile, intricately crafted, slickly packaged, faster paced and perfectly executed rock n roll concert on a Saturday night at Dicks got their show.

The show seemed longer than yesterday's. Everyone says they appreciate more stamina and staying power but I'm not sure that show length is a metric people care about in the post-Maxell XLII world and also because they don't pull out short with 60 minute sets anymore.

I liked the Wolfmans- it was a level above the typical version. Could have used a couple more minutes of the supremely sicko Sand but part of their psychology is to leave you wanting more.

Simple was cool. Limb by Limb was it's brilliant and hard hitting self.

As for song length- Clock watchers might not be impressed with this show but every song was a worthy rendition.

The second set was obviously a different beast than night one. The 10 minute songs were able to develop some upbeat and face melting jams- although that is par for the course at this point. They are that damn good.

It shows how spoiled we are as a fan base that so many of us want deep dives into even longer jams and free wheeling improv segments. Anyone of sound mind should be very satisfied with this experience with Dicks.
