gratefulphishy Its been few days since this show and after relistening to it several times I'm not quite sure why it doesn't score higher. I guess after the BD the bar was set high. This was the best show of the Dicks run and for me in the top 3 shows of the summer.

Set one is definitely over looked. I was having the time of my life during this set. Blaze on comes out strong. Maybe not the best version but a great way to open the show. 555 is always a nice touch. Never cared much from Breath and Burning. Theme was good but a standard version. Free was thumping out of control. Mikes bass was turned up so loud this weekend and I was loving it, this one had the crowd going for sure. Tube gets jammed out once again, and gets some nice licks from trey along with a perfect amount of synth from Page. Roggae isn't to be overlooked, plenty of peaks and trey shredding. More had the chompers going crazy but what do you expect.

Now this is where things get going. Other than both sets from the jam night, this was the best set of the summer IMO. NMINML gets super psychedelic. This is better than the Dick's 2016 version. The carini is in the top 3 of all time. Psychedelic exploration, plenty of grooving pockets, and a massive peak... What else could you ask for? Ghost was great, had a NMINML groove and quotes, perfect placement in the set. Then we get a huge Hood. The crowd nearly caused an earthquake as Fishman hit the opening notes. Cavern once again had the chompers going crazy.

Now the encore was a little bit of a let down. After such a high energy set I would have hoped for something just a little better. Not that I dislike Silent in the morning just a little slow for what was previously played. Then again let down by a zero.

Overall this night was insanely good. Having attended Night 4 of the BD I would put it just under that show personally. The whole second set is worth a listen! 5/5 for me
