Bob_Loblaw Damn the full star rating system!

This is an excellent tour opener. Chalk Dust just rips right from the get-go. Wolfman in the 2nd slot works well to maintain the energy. 2001 (in a bizarre slot) is also played well. Highlight of the set has to be the fantastic Stash, one of the best Stash peaks I've ever heard. It's just fantastic in every conceivable way. Walfredo is a well played debut. Bowie rips almost as hard as Stash, great finale.

Julius is it's typical set opener self. My Soul gets a solid debut. PYITE is great, as is it's (probably very unexpected) jam afterwards. It starts with some nice feedback until they find their footing that would take them into Slave. The Maze > Rock A William sequence is great, and the well played debut's continue with Rock A William. Hood is above average.

I like the Slow > Fast aspect of the encore. Kind of similar to a Sleeping Monkey > Rock Top encore.

Overall a well played tour opener.
