Review by headyburritos

headyburritos This was a solid show front to back. I gave it 5 stars, partly because I was in attendance, but there was also some great playing, a band prank, special guest horns...and of course the Simple!

The Llama opener was my first Llama, and I'm glad it was the opener, just how I always envisioned it! Early first set Undermind and Stash were hot and got the crowd moving. I Didn't Know is always hilarious and featured Fishman swinging the vacuum hose like a giant dong. Nellie Cane is my favorite bluegrass cover and this was a great spot for it. By this point in the set it was obvious what was being spelled, and Guyute was the perfect call for the "G" after not being seen all year. They nailed this version and kept the energy high when they busted out No Quarter, which I think got the loudest crowd reaction all night. First set Suzy finale with special guest horns!! What a treat!

The second set speaks for itself..fantastic flow and practically non-stop playing, the highlight of course being the Simple>Ghost segment. This Simple has it all..dirty licks, funk, plinko..Dick's was grooving hard this night. Harry Hood has some interesting jamming and was well-played. Wading was a nice break before the somewhat 'expected' Antelope to close the set.

All around great show that will definitely be getting a lot of re-listens!
