Review by TheWiggler

TheWiggler What a show, probably my favorite still in my limited experience (though coming back to the tent after waiting an hour and a half in what became a COLD night for the shuttle and finding that some guys from NY had pulled in right between our car and the next site to set up their nitrous tank (and it was fine for the first couple hours) right behind my tent (I'm talking within six feet from my head when I layed down) and proceeded to rage and scream until 7 meant no sleep until after Cuyahoga) seeing the band. I shit you not, but I actually called each of the first three songs before they were playerd, honest! I was never a fan of Maze until I saw the interplay in this version. The whole first set was just all over the place in all the right ways. Then of course, the second set was magic- I know this will sound weird, but in the end of Light I hear this year's Tahoe Tweezer! I must have listened to it too much, because I am beginning to hear some aspect of it in every concert I relisten to. Great transition between the Light to the Paug. I think Mike was the unsung hero of that set. Trey's phrasing in Slave had a uniqueness to it that befit the night. Great show.

Hey, throwing this out there, is anyone else an Ocarina of Time fan? I swear that the ending credits after you beat the game are almost identical to the 'heroic opera' at the end of the Lizards. Anyone else hear that?
