JMart Happy 22nd birthday to a fun show.
My cousin and I attended the 7/31 show together in Columbus (his home turf) so we figured we’d call it equal if he and his sister drove down for this one. Halfway to the venue my bud remembered he forgot his ticket back in chapel hill. Bummer.
Brief thunderstorm gave way to the opening pairing of water/drowned. I recall good renditions of stash and foam in the first set as well as the big col forbin/mockingbird bust out. I was a big enough fan at the time to know it was a big deal, but not to assess the execution. Thank goodness for @ucpete!
Second set featured an absolutely filthy mike’s jam. Trey went off hard for a minute or two, just tearing up the fretboard.
Bearing in mind they’d played Disease in Atlanta the show before, it was surprising to hear the beginnings of a tease in weekapaugh. It sounds as though Trey caught himself about halfway through the lick and buried it.
This waste is my favorite version of a tune I really don’t enjoy that much. The solo is beautiful.
Listen to the foam, stash, mikes, and paug
