Review by Divided_Stash

Divided_Stash Golgi Apparatus: unusual opener choice, don’t mind it at all. Played perfectly

Chalk Dust Torture: high energy longer type 1 version

Bouncing Around The Room: standard

Wolfman’s Brother: jam starts with a funky breakdown and continues with the usual early 3.0 buildup. Nothing too special or exploratory but a nice first set groove

Divided Sky: flawless compositions and soaring Trey. Really solid

Heavy Things: standard

Walk Away: 80 show gap

Wilson: slightly extended middle segment, other than that pretty normal

Tube: longest 3.0 rendition until 2016, awesome funk to start but they start to break away from the Tube theme a bit, then quickly get it back, play around with some effects and finish the song. Page clav heaven

Alaska: standard

David Bowie: some troubles in the composed sections, which actually leads straight into the jam. Typical type 1 build and peak Bowie to end the first set

Down With Disease: first type 2 excursion to start the second set. Starts with the normal pre breakaway soloing and when they do Page switches to some spacey synths and piano. Trey uses an effect heard regularly in the late 90s and the jam is rolling along with Fish throwing in some cowbell. After a few minutes Trey starts

Free: standard

Guyute: played well

Piper: more type 2 jamming here. Once they break from the Piper theme, a buildup begins that leads to a nice peak but it's over quickly and they move on to a quieter groove with Trey whale calls and as they quiet down even more they find a transition into

When The Circus Comes: standard

Harry Hood: great buildup and an extended outro. You can feel good about this hood

The Squirming Coil: gorgeous Page solo

You Enjoy Myself: sick bass+drums

Grind: 65,442

Hold Your Head Up: standard

Bike: 95 show gap

Hold Your Head Up: Fish's laughing at the end is ridiculous

Loving Cup: raging closer

Solid show for early 2009. Some fun tunes, decent jamming in DWD and Piper, and the encore is hilarious. This is a 5.5/10 for me
