Review by beerman

beerman This was a very strong show in my opinion. First set had some great energy between Gin and Cities. I'm always up for 46 Days and was happy to hear my first FEFY and Strange Design.

Second set started great, but that PA meltdown and subpar sound when they came back on stage really dampened the second half of the second set. From what I could hear on the lawn, the CDT, BOTT and Slave sounded like good versions, so I look forward to hearing when the CD's arrive. Regardless of how the plans "should be", it's not our fault (i.e. the audience) the PA went to sh-t, so it's difficult to get 19,000+ people to be quiet. I really like the Walrus encore.

I must say I hoped for a bit more rock/energy after the PA problems. Kind of hoped they would kill it to end, and definitely thought we'd have a second song encore as a small "thanks for understanding about the sound problems."

I was mildly surprised there was no nod to the 22nd anniversary of the Gamehendge experience from 1994 at Great Woods (including the Stash that made its way to A Live One). Seemed like something the band might acknowledge musically.

A solid 4/5 from me. I look forward to the next show. Cheers!
