aybesea I'm strictly couch touring, so I don't think I'm caught up in some of the emotion you get from a live setting, but I'm seriously perplexed by this show...

On the one hand, it has a seriously great song selection... except maybe the ER-RCT-More triad (come on Trey, how about just one per performance?) But otherwise, both sets pretty much read like a dream selection for each set, and Cup to encore is always nice.

On top of that, the performance of pretty much everything is spot on. It's a big Tweezer with a sweet into Gin. Possum rages. 2001 gets the place all funked up. It's just a really, really sweet show!

But... there's not a single "best performance" of the tour to be found here. I mean nothing.

It's not the best Tweezer (Alpharetta 2), or Gin (Nashville 2), or Blaze On (Noblesville 1). It's not even the best Wolfman's (also Noblesville 1), or Possum (Noblesville 2). Arguably it's the best Hood, but that's because they haven't dropped a supersized Hood yet.

I do this thing every tour where I put together a playlist of "bests" from every tour. Only two rules... 1) every show gets represented, and 2) no dupes. I had a very difficult time selecting anything from this show. I ended up picking CTB, HH (expecting to drop this once they go west), and LC.

Pretty weak selections for "bests", especially from a show this good! (It's a really good show)
