Review by Miguelito

Miguelito Llama to open is always a treat, setting the show up in an upbeat, energetic manner. The Guelah and Rift follow ups fit right in, making this feel like a quintessential ‘93 show. Both are solidly played, setting us up for the heart of the set: Stash and Reba. The Stash is an excellent version The subsequent Reba is amazing and is the highlight of the set to my ears. That being said, the set has some nice tunes before we get to the closer, including the always-welcome MFMF, an Uncle Pen and I Didn’t Know. The set-closing Bowie should be better, and I had high hopes given the length. And while I enjoyed it, it didn’t seem to really go anywhere really interesting.

Set II opens with a fun sequence of Buried Alive > Halley’s Comet > It’s Ice. While none of these rocked my world, I enjoyed it. Following BATR and CDT, we get a welcome TMWSIY > Avenu Malkenu > TMWSIY. The following Mike’s Groove is spectacular. This sequence has a lot to offer and I relistened to it a number of times before moving on. The Weekapaug is particularly strong and is likely the highlight of the show. The rest of the show is solid although not on the same level as the Mike’s Groove.

I really like this show, and the show before it (particularly the first set). Overall this is a nice two show run at the Warfield with some interesting highlights along the way.
