spreaditround SET 1: Gotta Jibboo: Solid jam – has a nice bounce and energy to it like any good GJ should. I like the loops that introduce the jam in this one.

No Men In No Man's Land: Solid, lil’ jam. Upbeat and blissy.

Steam: Standard.

Poor Heart: Standard.

Halley's Comet: Broadway Trey’s vocals are absurd. Nice micro jam ->

Saw It Again: Pretty cool segue!

Theme From the Bottom: Standard. >

Maze: Standard.

About to Run: Standard.

Most Events Aren't Planned: Standard.

SET 2: Down with Disease: composed section is a mess! Vocals are Broadway Trey’d. Ugh. Extremely mellow through almost 17 minutes when Trey decides to actually play guitar. Up until then Fishman was just DESTROYING his kit, that man is in top form apparently after his surgery. No man his age should be able to play this well, but here we are. In the late 18’s Trey decides to just go back to that lazy strumming stuff. Thankfully Fishman is there to pick up the slack and he goes right back to beast mode. I feel like I read a good bit of chatter about how good this jam was. I don’t know about that. I think it’s good enough but certainly not great. Fishman surely was the clear MVP throughout! >

Golden Age: Standard. >

Soul Planet: Standard. >

Runaway Jim: This about the laziest, uninspired version I can recall. >

Light: In the same vein as Runaway Jim, just…boring. ->

Piper: Finally, some energy! This one really rocks out. Again, Fishman is just a huge beast on this one. So fast. >

Also Sprach Zarathustra: Solid jam, patient and slow. Out of sync a bit in places. One spot specifically where it’s real quiet and Trey goes for a peak out of nowhere. >

Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S. – Standard.

ENCORE: Fee: Standard.

The Wedge: Standard.

Replay Value/Summary: There is unfortunately nothing I would personally recommend or revisit from this show. It started off well enough with the first two songs. You would have thought they could have harnessed some of the momentum from that great show the night before, but not so much.

Score: 3 out of 5.
