headyburritos Overall a pretty average show and definitely doesn't reach the same heights as some of the more well-known Summer '97 shows. That said, it still has some groovy moments and some good jamming. The Gumbo and Antelope are not to be missed, and the Twist delivers some weird sounds late in the second set.

First set highlights are definitely Gumbo and Ghost. Gumbo brings the out that distinctive 97 funk sound early in the show and paves the way for the rest of the jams. Ghost is solid, but not nearly on the same level as the Lakewood or Denver Ghost.

Second set opens with the now rare Olivia's Pool before dropping into an extended and frantic Antelope. About 20 minutes in length, the buildup in this Antelope is wild and frenetic. It dissolves in a pleasant Wading before the final big jam of the night in Twist. Weird and dissonant, this Twist is very unique sounding. A solid -> Taste as the jam meanders and then some standards to close out the show. Page's solo in Coil has some cool and haunting moments. Overall good show, but overshadowed by the next night for sure!
