Errand_Wolfe Day 3 of my first Deer Creek run. Sunday, Fun Day!

Set one was a feel good set. Fairly safe, no super extended jams, and tasty song selections. While My Guitar Gently Weeps set the emotion bar high, followed by a joyous My Soul. They ripped through crowd pleasers like Rift and Horn, a fun Wombat as well as a great Guyute (where Trey could not stop giggling through the dark "Bouncing like a newborn elf..." part toward the end.) Always love a good Mercury, too.

Set 2 was a little bumpy. Sand felt kind of down tempo (maybe to better express the sadly topical lyrics, I don't know), but the jam - easily the highlight of the show - was spectacular, ever shifting and encompassed a Sigma Oasis. Twenty Years Later segued into a sloppy Mango Song (an oddly iconsistent song for the band these days). Rise followed and didn't help (not a fan). They ended strong on a solid Free.

The encore began with an a capella Grind and, I must say, kudos to the Deer Creek crowd - they were so quiet! Usually there's so much chit chat, but not here. The silence was almost eerie. The finale was a powerful Slave To The Traffic Light.

A decent show overall, but Saturday gets my vote for best night (which is usually the case for me) followed very closely by Friday.
