thelot The SBD source for this show is very clean with bright sound.

DaaM cuts in to start. A few rough spots on this one. This slams right into a pretty straightforward YEM. Possum segues out of yet another vocal jam. It was a pretty smooth transition until they dropped into Possum. They got it back on track pretty quickly and stretched the intro out a bit. Nice A-Train>Antelope combo to wrap up set 1. Inspired intro to Antelope. This inspired play continues into the jam and Marco section as well. Antelope basically carried the first on it’s back.

Divided Sky cuts in to start set 2. Super cool version of Sky! Trey is en fuego during the jam! Solid Gin. MSO has an extended drum opening while Mike changes his bass string. I Didn’t Know featured Marco Esquandolis on vacuum. A possible nod to the strong Antelope to close the first set. Solid Mike’s Groove. Mike’s had the longest second jam up to this point. Weekapaug was electric per usual. Curtis Lowe provided a nice cool down song. Before the encore Page mentions that it’s their first time in Saratoga. Fish jokes “this has been one awful reception!” “If only we had a crowd…we could pack a few more people in here.” A playful Contact and roaring GXBX closed things out. Trey comments afterwards “Saratoga should be proud of being the town that generates more body heat than any town I have ever been in in my life.”
