Review by art_vandelay

art_vandelay I decided to pump the brakes before commenting about this show....I'd felt maybe in hindsight, the explosive crowd & band energy + the in-the-moment euphoria of being there would've led to a bunch of "one of the best shows!"-type bravado one might hear when exiting the venue. So last night, I blasted the Charlotte show on the stereo in the living room, expectations a bit more grounded...

And you know what? It was still a hell of a show to my ears. Apart from a shaky "Taste" which sounded like Trey wished he could've had a do-over, everything just seemed to work on this Friday night. The Tweezer(s) were quite satisfying, Jim was some next-level type II jam candy, Sand was groovily on point, on and on...hell, even Possum had some machine-gun fireworks reminiscent of years past, almost (but not quite, lol) giving my fave version (Atlanta '97) a run for its money.

My girlfriend's first show, and she's already asking about the next. Besides loving the music, she couldn't stop raving about how bonkers, yet still totally connected to the band, the crowd was. No arguments here :)
