Review by JerrysMissingFinger

JerrysMissingFinger Another Friday night heater. Cavern was a cool call as an opener, reminding us of that Fall Tour roof that so changes the vibe from the open air of summer shows. If I Could...you already know...as a younger fan, definitely never thought I’d catch that one. After what I thought was a chill 3-song opening run, Sand brought back some peaky energy. First set highlight though? Martian into Mercury. You are the first astronaut, that’s for sure, so lets explore the cosmos, baby. Definitely thought we were going to get a Taste about halfway through, but (honestly, thankfully) they kept it going. My ear is drawn to Mike’s modal variations on a main theme throughout. Of course, Suzy to finish, inevitable “slot machine” crowd reaction was sick. Set Two, yeah we get the Soul Planet opener. It’s kind of growing on me, but if its not your thing, the jam will be, so just drag the cursor a bit. DWD got me spooked at the time (but holy shit, the energy rising out of the crowd during Trey solo-> jam, just wow), but upon hearing it again it is a little spicy amd groovy. The evil pig kept the spooky vibes in the air, always cool, and actually, good call on set placement. Highlight for me was Sally. Wow, that was some nasty grooving. Out pops a wife, and shit, she is mad. Running down the alley at full speed, our feet are stuck in the stickiest, ickiest gunk this side of Mike’s bass amps. Throw it on and get down in your living room, guys. Even Light got dark, and Slave wrapped things up with its cherry sweet flavor (tasting the music, hmm...). Bob Weaver encore (his booty shakin’, mine getting shook by the vacuum) had my whole crew laughing before we all got treated to a GTBT (I guess Trey remembered how to play it!) Great show, worth a listen, always down for getting spooky on Halloweekend
