Review by SandWedge

SandWedge I noticed there aren't any reviews yet so I'll take a stab at my first one here. A little caveat, I was at this and the last two shows.

This show was pure phun. There was an ongoing chant/banter with the audience throughout different moments of the show that interestingly isn't mentioned in the setlist, but that was absolutely a highlight. (Trey said Hi, Mike said Hello, Trey Said How are you, Mike Said, Good, Trey Said I hope you have a good time, Mike said thanks, then the crowd took over Mike's part, probably happened three times or so throughout the show).

Prior to the show, I've never seen quite a ticket scene like that one. Nothing like drinking in a HS parking lot!

Pebbles and Marbles opener --> Makisupa is what dreams are made of and it's clear that the boys are on a mission to keep setlists unpredictably awesome. Sample was solid and overdue for a showing. Then, Silver Light! I must admit I have been singing along to this one in my car the last two months and I couldn't be happier to have caught a really tight debut version of this one. Halley's and MITM were well played. Mull is a really solid Mike track (interestingly no page songs tonight) and the jam was quite punchy. If I'm being honest a couple of the jams tonight felt a bit disorganized and Set Your Soul Free was the first in this vein. You can tell they were a little out of sync when they bring back the theme and Trey just can't seem to find the key. I did notice Trey tuning and messing with his gear a bit more than usual, maybe these are related. None the less we were excited about another set of "pisch music" (which is what the gentlemen in front of us googled during the first set).

The second set is a little hazier for me but have y'all been noticing that Trey is really going for it with the sort of chaos jamming recently? I was definitely getting hints of 99 Trey throughout the show tonight with the crazy effects and free-form peaks. Anyway, wish I could comment on each song from the second set, but I don't know how. All I know is it was incredible to see my favorite band in effectively someone's backyard. The weekapaug caught everyone off guard, maybe even Trey! What a goofy band. Sigma jam was really solid too!

How about that encore folks! Setlist porn 100% which performed really well in person.

See you all in Vegas. Bring your raincoats, because no one is safe from the Hose right now!
