emkeyone Am I the only one who feels like there is somebody with a bunch of accounts that likes to influence the scoring? Because I can seldom figure out any rhyme or reason as to how a particular show fares in the early voting. That early voting in turn has a significant impact on the later voting.

My paranoid ramblings aside, this was a pretty solid show. In particular I was psyched to finally hear "Divided Sky" in person. This was my 42nd show, so it didn't come quickly but it was worth the wait. As the first few notes played I was thinking "Wait, I know this. WTF, is my long wait over?" Yes, yes it was. I now know the secret to life, the universe and everything.

Overall the song selection was good with several personal favorites being featured and some solid to excellent jamming throughout, though nothing super earth shattering.

In spite of "Divided Sky" being in the first set I'd give the nod to the second as the better of the two. Possum is always fun and YEM was a nice way to finish up before the "Loving Cup" encore.

The venue is great from a listening, aesthetic and vending perspective, but it would benefit from some more bathrooms. It was rare at any time for there not to be a line at both the mens and women's bathrooms and the six or so added extra porta potties only seemed to help a little.

Overall I'd rate this show a 3.8 to 3.9 or so.
