ForgeTheCoin IMO, this show is criminally underrated! The Mexico '20 opener picks right up where the NYE run left off - with the band firing on all cylinders and an infusion of 'Rock God' Trey coming off of his recent Oysterhead performances.
Give it a listen. It really is worth it. The Ghost resolves to a beautiful and uplifting bliss jam. Free goes to some VERY interesting places. Shake Your Coconuts is FUN. Victim is tight and leads to a really tasty bouncy jam > dark funk. Moma Dance has LEGS. Jibboo is 8 minutes of TASTY BLISS. Shade is, I dare say, the most beautiful version of it they've ever done. Trey does new things with the vocal melodies... his singing has never sounded better. The Landlady was unexpected and great as usual. Destiny Unbound brings the FUNK as it did in Charleston. Steam is an ALL TIMER with some of the most blistering guitar work I've heard from Trey in the 3.0 era. Jam Chart material. Great transition into an excellent, upbeat Crosseyed! The Antelope... well it has problems... but eventually gets to the jam. Sea of Stars shimmers... is there a bad version of this tune??? Heady and blissful. Santos is hard driving and feels more refined than previously. The YEM is average great and brings some funk per usual.

TL : DR - Must Hear: Free, Steam Really, listen to Free through Crosseyed, and Sea of Stars. This show is going to get a LOT of relistens from me... especially the Steam.
