Punch You in the Eye: Good stuff, love when they open with PYITE. Really gets the juices flowing. Played relatively well.
Wolfman's Brother: 3:18 to 3:23 Boogie On tease from Trey. Nice little run of sustained notes from Trey in the early 8:00’s. Solid Wolfman’s. Can always count on this one in 3.0. Always.
Walls of the Cave: When I saw this setlist, I was pumped to see this in the three hole. Finally, breaking it out of it’s pigeonhole closing out sets, mostly first sets. It’s insane to see how often to see over it’s history where it’s played in the same spot. Well, the new placement certainly sparked something with the band! Very cool jam! They do go for the bliss crutch towards the last two minutes or so. But before that they get to a very cool, dissonant space that I love in the 11 minute range. Wish they would have stayed there and not opted for the safety blanket approach. All that said, really good jam.
Heavy Rotation: Nice little jam, some of this tune seems ill fitted for Page’s vocal range though which is odd since it was his band’s tune to begin with?
Boogie On Reggae Woman > Standard
Stash > LOL
Free > Standard
Mike's Song > Standard
Bug: Love this tune, but definitely not a fan of this placement.

SET 2: Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S. > Standard
Kill Devil Falls[1] > Love this jam out of the chute, gets nasty right away in the early 5’s. Overall, a jam I would revisit. This will certainly land on the KDF jamchart.
Sigma Oasis[1] > Nice little jam and perfect segue into…
Thunderhead > Great bustout, fan of the placement. Love this song. Little jam tacked on to this one too!
The Moma Dance: 6:36 swear I can hear Trey just slightly teasing Burning Down the House, check it out. This version really does have some similarity to one of the all time greats, the Moma Death March from 6.17.04. Trey’s tone is dark and dirty much like Brooklyn’s was, love it. This jam is just nasty and one of the best from this Dick’s run for sure. ->
No Quarter: Very nice >
Also Sprach Zarathustra: This one definitely brings the jams, very fun! >
Split Open and Melt: Had to be there I guess? I am sure if you were there it was mind blowing.

ENCORE: Fee: Nice. Interesting that when this is played in 3.0 how oftent it is in the encore slot >
Slave to the Traffic Light: Good Slave, nothing too crazy but good version.

Summary: Having listened to the first three shows of the run so far, this is my favorite and I would score it a solid 3.9 out of 5. Three really good jams in WOTC, KDF and Moma with a nice surrounding cast to support those pillars. This show far, far outpaces the first two nights in my eyes.
