Review by Palmer

Palmer Set One was calling for a Cities opener, got Funky Bitch. This just set the tone for what was to come. BDTNL was a good tune to hear live, no complaints. Gumbo surprised me and was glad to hear it, Torn and Frayed was played as a solid middle ground set breaker. When they busted into Moma dance and Scent of a Mule I knew we have hit the ground running. 46 Days into YEM was a solid closer of a sick first set.
Set Two came with Jibboo. I can't complain was hoping for a DWD but hell, you can't win them all. The Mike's > Simple > Light > Weekapaug was the highlight for me and I am sure others, solid playing and kept with the crowd which IMO was raging at this point. Seven Below kept the flow of the crowd and the band at a tight race of neck and neck, Bouncing chilled things out for a few, always have loved this song and always enjoy hearing this being played. Julius > Slave was an odd placement regarding the energy factor was still going strong, was happy with Slave as a closer for the show because in the past have gotten either Character Zero, Caspian or First Tube. Then the Encore- Lizards, really? I forgot about this gem. Seriously from the moment i heard the opening cords from Trey I was finding myself saying "Holy $#@!. Driving home pumping tunes of past shows, i was really given a solid performance. What a show, what a venue and the crowd was a group of energy driven with the band this evening.
