smaine This was a thoroughly enjoyable way to cap out an excellent, if somewhat logistically challenging Dicks IX.

Given how familiar these some of these songs seem by now, it's strange to think that neither the Kasvot Vaxt catalog and the Ghosts of the Forests catalog existed at this time last year. That's a massive amount of new music to have injected into our scene over the span of a year, and it was really fun to see that land so well with the crowd. Life Beyond The Dream in the middle of an encore sandwich was super enjoyable. I love that this band continues to evolve.

Score one for Fuego tonight. It feels like that song gets an unnecessary amount of crap for not really breaking out, despite outings like 1/13/17 in Mexico. Tonight's rendition should at least give the Fuego-haters pause, as the -> into a slow-build Piper is really a thing of beauty. The Tweezer was short and sweet, made all the better because it was set up as a contrast to the face-melting crazy that was the Piper jam. 2001 and Chalk Dust were pure dance party, taking a slight recharge break through Waste and then powering through to the end.

First Tube is a song that I will always be happy to see live. The energy it imparts to the crowd is an amazing thing to be a part of. Plus, Trey just looks so damn happy up there getting us all wound up...what's not to love about that? First Tube tonight on the floor was utterly and completely insane.

Very excited to give this one a relisten on the flight home.
