spreaditround SET 1: Carini: Nothing's Gonna Stop Us starts at 5:08 and cracks me up, that is hilarious. Extremely upbeat, major chord – bliss jam. Smokes >

You Enjoy Myself: Wow, nice. Obviously, they understand the significance of the rain delay and all the crap that everyone had to go through to get to this moment. Bit sloppy from jump street. Trey ripped it for a minute or two ->

Ghost: Smoked. Short. >

Julius: Trey, buddy; ya gotta stop singing all weird. Standard Julius.

Reba: Good Reba, though Trey seemed to stop short when it seemed he was going to go for a big peak?

Tube: Bliss jam? C’mon guys. Be better. >

Tweezer: Kind of old school in the first ten minutes in that they keep messing with one theme - Streets of Cairo stuff just keeps going and going. Doesn’t really bust out of that until about ten and half minutes in. Then it goes, yes you guessed it, major chord/bliss. The ending did have some aimless noodling reminiscent of early 3.0 whale stuff though if you are into that ->

What's the Use: Standard >

Weekapaug Groove: Just strange to me playing this outside of a Mike’s Groove, Neutered if you will. Trey ripchords the rug out from under Page… ->

No Men In No Man's Land: 5 minutes? >

Weekapaug Groove: Trey, take your Ritalin pills >

Moonage Daydream: Nice! Trey’s voice lessons paying off and then he RIPS the solo. >

Chalk Dust Torture: At this point they are obviously running out of time but want to give the fans another big gun and do there best to rip it.

ENCORE: Pebbles and Marbles: Cool encore, only the second one ever. Nice treat and nod.

Tweezer Reprise: Good, ol’ Tweeprise.

Summary: For much of the summer the band seemed to throw away the crutch of major chord/bliss jamming. This show though they just beat that dead horse like mad. It’s a shame, really. Look, it’s cool that they threw down a bunch of old school tunes. I get it. This show has some serious attendance bias, more so than most shows out there as a result of the rain delay and whatnot. My favorite part of this show is Moonage Daydream. On paper, it's a sexy beast. When you truly dig into it, it is not. They did the best they could with the situation they found themselves in. I would score this a 3.75 out of 5.
