Slewfoot An incredibly gripping show from start to finish. It’s tough to know where to start and how to process it all. But I’ll give a few tidbits as I’m heading back home after the show...the Ghost>Rift was an incredible one-two opening punch. The Ghost immediately had this gooey thickness and complexity that put vibes of 12-30-18 in my mind which never really went away throughout the night...the first set was full of incredible energy and each song a highlight in its own way, but special mention to Cool it Down. The song had such swing and swagger to it. The band was just oozing confidence...the second set was all about exploration, countering the energy of the first set. Each song seemed to get to its own unique place: the ER hypnotic, the Ruby Waves gentle grassy knolls, the Twenty Years Later hanging in midair while attaching itself to the sides of the venue, the BDNTL where Trey’s solo notes sounded like golden arcs of friendship. These songs went places. No one true highlight. More of a gel of a set with each song still retaining uniqueness...very special stuff and then a gorgeous Slave to send us on our way. Couldn’t have asked for more to end this lovely Holiday Weekend!
