Review by JMart

JMart First set last night was as good a set as they've played all tour. Excellent jams in Blaze ON, Ghost, Undermind, and Tube. Even Bowie got a little sprightly, after suffering from years of just not cutting it.
Everything's Right was the jam of the night, and worth your (Re)listen. Farmhouse was very poorly placed and not sure the set ever recovered, as manifest by a very awkward (although not as nearly awkward as a ripcord, mind you) transition from Mercury into Seven Below.
Bold As Love deserves to have a Farmhouse tease in there, and it borders on a reprise.
One wonders why the first sets seem to be shining so brightly compared to the second recently. Perhaps it's because they don't feel the pressure to throw a 20+ minute jam into the second frame every night to wow the clock counters, and feel free to just let the song end itself if it needs to. That's conjecture. There were about five or six jams that bear listening to, most in the first.
