Review by Miguelito

Miguelito I wouldn’t pick Fee as an opener for a show but it’s an interesting choice. The Llama that follows really sets the tone for the rest of the show. Horn is nice, but it’s quick. The band seems like they’re firing on all cylinders at this point of the tour, moving towards that momentous Halloween show only days away. A few songs later, they erupt into a monstrous Melt. This is a spectacular version with frenzied, chaotic energy that takes various twists and turns. This was an insta-re-listen for me and I’ll likely keep coming back to this one. The rest of the set is fine, with no complaints about getting Lizards before closing it out with Sample.

The Mike’s > Simple to open the second set is nice, and noteworthy as being the first time this tour they don’t return to Mike’s after the Simple. Instead we get
Mango Song, which is always welcome, leading into a phenomenal Weekapaug. This Weekapaug is the highlight of the set to me, which goes to several interesting places including a vocal-infused jam, before dropping nicely into Yerushalyim Shel Zahav and then Glide. I really love this set opening sequence.

Cruising through Axilla, the band drops into JJLC, which makes its tour debut after a 33 show gap. Things are just flowing smoothly at this point in the show and this version smokes. The set-closing Possum is another highlight, with this one including a fun Kashmir tease.

Overall this is really great show, with numerous highlights, especially the Melt and Weekapaug. The show in its entirety is worth checking out as the band is really rolling strong at this point of the tour.
