Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover The band comes out of the gates on fire, opening with a 25 minute Disease that's energetic from the get go. This version teases Weekapaug and doesn't really slow down until about the 16 minute mark, when it slowly transitions to a wonderfully ambient space jam. An excellent, unique Disease that is completely overlooked.

Trey is all over the place in Piper, taking the lead with searing notes that go off wildly in all directions with lots of movement up and down his fret board. Adventurous, but not especially focused until about the 13 minute mark, when it settles down into a completely different animal that's much less frenzied.

Sand is 14 minutes of repetitive jamming in that uninteresting, unexciting style that makes many of the 99-00 jams not age especially well.

Bathub Gin has a brief peak, with Trey the band really heating up at around 11 minutes. Twist is a little ragged at first, but gets going nicely without being overwhelming. Lots of slower stuff afterwords, a reflection of the quiet and attentive Japanese crowd. Sure would be nice to hear them revive The Inlaw Josie Wales one of these days.

Check out the Disease and Piper for some interesting 2000-style jamming.

Bob_Loblaw The Drum Logos Warmup.

This show is actually pretty solid if you take into account the rust that must be shed going that far over seas. It's a really really good warmup show.

DWD kicks off the jams right off the bat. The jam starts with a thunderous hose jam and then drifts off into a nice tranquil space. They nail the ending pretty well, what a way to kick things off! Piper continues the jamming. This one is more of a crazy roller coaster. It gets very heavy. You get some more meat out of Guyute. There's not too many 5 song first sets and this one is a bit of a diamond in the ruff.

Quick little Heavy Things played pretty well. Sand get's down to business. They do a pretty good job at keeping it from getting too repetitive and I appreciate that in a good Sand. Gin has a very nice quick hose jam with an excellent peak, very potent Gin. The rest of the set is pretty straight forward.

I love this encore because it features the very nice and mellow Inlaw Josie Wales and then goes into a LxL that is very powerful in it's playing. They seem to play pretty excellent encores in Japan (Remember the cool Brian and Robert encore from the year before?)

Overall an above average show that is a great first step towards the legendary jams a couple shows later.

Review by life_boy

life_boy It’s insane how this show starts out. It makes more sense when you realize that though this is a different venue, it’s only about 20 minutes away from the On Air East. It feels continuous, as if the “YEM” encore from 6/9 is actually the first song of this set. All the songs are self-contained, which makes the show feel a little more vintage throwback than usual (especially in light of the segue-fest that is Drum Logos coming up in a few days). But it overall feels like a bit of a cool down show after the intensity of that previous night’s “Tweezer.” Even the intense “Down with Disease” and “Piper” in this set feel like they could be within the package of jams emerging out of that On Air “Tweezer.” “Piper” in particular goes some intense places and feels like the highlight to me. I also really like the “Gin” and “Loving Cup.”

Overall, that context helps me sit with this show differently than I would if I came to it by itself. As a standalone show, it doesn’t do a whole lot for me. But as a piece in the larger context of the Japan 2000 run, I see where it fits and I like the role it plays. I also see how the elements are beginning to coalesce into what will be the Drum Logos show. Zepp Tokyo is atypical. Nothing particularly exciting but nothing particularly bad either. Worth hearing in the context of Japan 2000.
