mgolia6 From the virtual confines of the couch and later bed, so take this for what it’s worth. The webcast perspective allows me to take in much more visually than I normally would at a show. I tend not to look up at the stage too often and so don’t often get a view of the lights. So the couch provided glimpses into perspectives I never really had a chance to enjoy. I have always known the power of Chris Kuroda and his creative pursuits pushing the boundaries of what accompanying lights could add as a dynamic that is often wasted on cheese backdrops and pulsing lava lamp style images. The rig he has set up is like a spaceship and a sailing vessel, an 80s vintage gaming system and futuristic mind meld all built into one. I am in awe.

To the show. The closing Rise/come together is one of those instances where you hear the song start and are like don’t get judgmental. But you do. Then you breath into the stretch and are happy that you did because this went deep in the first set when they could have rattled off another 3 songs. Love the first set mixup on this tour and throwing the second longest jam to close in a newer tune is spot on.

The second set felt fluid even with a Carini > Waste I didn’t feel as if it messed with the flow. While Ruby Waves could have gone deeper the gentle glide in BASOF was elegant and I love the lullaby feel of this song. The Piper Light segue, from where I heard it sounds like drawn butter on a warm brioche bun, just so smooth.

Set 3 aka the encore was packed with energy if not a bit rushed. Would have been nice to see them settle into a sally.

A lovely view of a lovely show. fWIW
