thelot Much better recording for night 2 at The Front! Beautiful SBD available for this one!

Suzy cuts in missing a second or so. Good version of Split Open. This pairs nicely with Tela. Fluffhead keeps the energy up. Another excellent version of La Grange tonight. Forbin > Mockingbird is always welcome. Communication Breakdown closes out a decent first half.

Wilson opens set 2 tonight with the same arrangement as last night. This leads into a fiery Antelope. Some funny stage banter follows Antelope regarding how hot the room is. Fishman says “I think it’s time for everybody to take off their clothes, it’s just getting to warm in here. The only way we’re gonna be able to deal with this is removable of clothing and turn the sprinklers on.” Trey: “if you guys take off your clothes Fish will I swear…if you do it he will!” lol Bouncin’ does a good job at cooling the crowd off. Caravan never gets old for me. Another fantastic version. Coil continues the new song streak. The piano outro slips nicely into YEM. YEM is electric tonight! Amazing version! Even the vocal jam is top notch. This slides nicely into Gin. Mike’s Groove wraps up set 2. Groove absolutely slays once again! Lawn Boy, BBFCFM is the perfect one two punch to close things out. Solid show tonight. Amazing recording! Other than the minor cut to start, there’s literally zero flaws. The taper even included the house music after BBFCFM! Good stuff!
