Review by chief_d

chief_d I watched this one from my gf's couch with a couple of buffalo chicken wraps and a bottle of Anchorage Brewing Darkest Hour (one of the tastiest stouts on Earth, go get some). Thought it was great for the most part, the boys seemed pretty blissed out, especially Trey and Fishman. Vocally, the first set was pretty ugly (even for them), but hey I don't pay money to hear them sing. We both dug the "Rift triptych", didn't expect to hear Mound ... second set didn't give me the "four-headed-hydra" -> segue I was hoping for, but it featured some great jams, especially in Ghost when Page The Mad Scientist took things over ... sorta reminded me a bit of the jamming in the 6/3/11 DWD ... then a very spirited run of songs at the end (I think the band might be paying attention to the recent rash of fans citing Antelope as a boring or monochromatic song, Trey has been annihilating it so far this year). "Run Like A Meatstick" lyric was pretty cheesy and not Grade-A Trey, but when the dude starts "dancing" onstage, you know he's having fun (see 12/6/97 and 8/31/12).

Has anyone else noted that the meat (stick) of the second set was the same as the great 6/26/95 SPAC show? DWD, YEM, and Antelope. The rest of the songs they played in the set hadn't been written yet in '95 ...
