Review by The__Van

The__Van The Sloth is such a great opener I'm surprised it took until 3.0 to get used in the slot more often. Dogs Stole Things is always a treat. Piper in slot 3 is so crazy but very in line with 2003. Trey really shreds in this one. It's mostly a typical type 1 rage fest until the surprise segue into Weekapaug. This was totally out of nowhere and felt so good. Paug gets it done like a late second set version. Man they are really cooking tonight! Dirt calms us down before heading into a goofy Scent of a Mule. I'm not big on this song so I can't speak to if this is a good one or not. WOTC by now has firmly established it's chops as a powerhouse and this version is no different. Huge and thick, this Walls just keeps getting bigger and bigger as it builds to an extreme climax. Mountains in the Mist is such a delicate vulnerable song. It lays us down to rest. Sample is good closer.

Tube starts the set with great work from Trey and Page. Interplay is abundant in this incredibly fun jam. Next up is one of the biggest highlights from the tour. This Gin is all over the map. Type 2 very improvisational. Trey's growly tone works so well with this kind of jamming. He starts to reel back the jam with the standard Gin closing line but then they decide to hang out in the exit lane for a bit longer for a decidedly demented take on the Gin theme. Friday settles down and leads us in to Bowie. David Bowie goes intergalactic several times before getting mellow and ramping back up to big finale. Another stellar jam for this ferocious set. Bug caps off one of the best sets I've heard so far. Stick around for Suzy Greenberg to hear Page light up the keyboards with 3 different breakdowns!
