Review by Col_Radicones_Ascent

Col_Radicones_Ascent (Live and onsight for these crazy shenanigans, this review had alot of post show after glow) I don't know where to begin....um my pants are covered in mustard due to to the amount of rocking that has occurred.

I will keep it simple....they didn't play Simple. No in all honesty that was something else, first set had a masterful Blaze On and one of my favorites, 46 Days along with Mikes Groove and a Contact high. That in its own right was worth the price of admission, some Bustouts (adding some new first timers) and a fiery set closer and you got yourself a stew baby.

But to make a stew you need the meat and potatoes, unless your vegan and you got lentils and carrots. In this case it's your four song second set anchored by the 36 min Tweezer behemoth and a 13 minute Ruby Waves that had so much going on with the time it was given, this song really brought it this year...well how about that. Then from the murky deep comes Steam which starts to jam but then becomes a launch vehicle for 2 more minutes of Tweezer and three more minutes of Ruby Waves. Finally a Slave to close out the set...god I love Slave after a set like that, total cherry on top. Then a Rock n Roll to send us home even more happy then we were earlier.

This has been a hell of a 2019 IMO, tonight marks the end of a run for me. I caught every incarnation Trey offered this year and from Ghost of the Forrest to Carnegie Hall, a Summer, Fall and Holiday Tour with TAB splashed in for good measure, this was a great year of music and I was glad to watch the Kasvot Vaxt & GOTF songs mature, along with an emphasis on shredding. Tonight marks my 40th (a baby to you vets) show and what away to celebrate, wish I could come out to play tomorrow, but godspeed you mighty warriors and storm the beaches tomorrow night for me, LOTS still on the table, SOAM, Bowie, Mockingbird, Simple and loads more!!! Good night everyone, if someone finds my face please message me.
