Review by MrPalmers1000DollarQ

MrPalmers1000DollarQ Had a three-day pass for AC...gave it up to spend some time with family...boy I really love my family huh....

In all seriousness though, this was an awesome show to listen to, so I can only imagine how fun everyone must've had on the beach. First set had excellent song selection, including the Cities everyone's been hunting all year (even if it started out in the wrong key and had trouble finding its place). The Sigma Oasis jam was potentially the highlight of the show in my opinion, and really took of unexpectedly to a space reminiscent of 7/10/99 CDT with its high octane tempo and Trey's soaring tone. Second set was absolutely nothing but heaters: Axilla II kicked things off with great energy and slid into a Soul Planet that nicely moseyed its way to a Dog Log-esque descending jam (is it actually a tease?). The DWD->Ruby Waves->DWD certainly packs plenty of diverse jamming as well, including a great Midnight Rider tease that recalls memories of 6/22/94. The heat goes on with a gnarly Ghost which, for me, is Sigma Oasis's biggest competitor from the second set. I really love the evil groove direction they took this one in, reaching a phenomenally dirty peak and then letting it cool of to slide into a great Hood closer. Hood jam even gets some Type II props for a nice harmonic departure from the usual changes, which returns seamlessly for the closing peak. Definitely a contender for set of the tour, so far. Bake in an encore comprised of the sentimental Sleeping Monkey and an unprecedently soon return of Free (only one show gap??? Are we entering a Free renaissance??), and you've easily got yourself a Top 3 show of the summer thus far. Looking forward to experiencing FOMO for the rest of the run from home, lol
