Review by ScratchMoore

ScratchMoore Allow me to be happy to buck the trend of mentioning the first set in a negative light. The first five songs got me right where I wanted to be. It was my first Soul Planet and My Pet Cat (my first song of any of the Disney Halloween tunes, sonits automatically be bumped up to my favorite), and I’m always glad to check off new tunes. Foreshadowing: these would NOT be my only firsts of the night.
I’m a big fan of Moma, and getting it to start the night did wonders for my vibe. It was the slowest I’ve experienced, but that dark/slinky/syrupy vibe would pop its head up several times throughout the evening.
KDV and Train both hit the right notes for me. None of the opening 5 went anywhere spectacular, but they were an exciting and vital start to the evening.
About To Run gave me a chance to catch my breath for Everything Is Hollow. Both songs were debuts for me, and Hollow rawked Me in my jiggly parts. My neck is sore today from the head banging I did for that one. Great tune, great riff, great vibe, great placement. Not sure if I’ll want to hear it often, but last night? I couldn’t have asked for a better rock tune.
Set 1 finished with a bang. Not much more I can add to everyone else’s comments here.
Set 2 had a little bit of everything, and I’ll continue to praise that Birds Of A Feather. Sooooo tasty.

The encore tho. I’ve never seen Split Open And Melt, but that was beyond words. Phish went to a place I have never seen them go to at the end of the song. They were on a different plane of existence. I couldn’t even dance anymore - I just had to stare slack-jawed at the lights. Beyond incredible.
