Review by waxbanks

waxbanks This show is overshadowed by the two weekend nights in Hampton, but can be talked about in the same breath. While this concert lacks that one revelatory cut like the 11/22 Halley's jam, 11/23's best-ever BEK and year's-best Stash > NICU set up an obscene 50-minute Gin > Disease > Low Rider > DISEEEEASE that constitutes the bulk of Set II (and is a longer run of true segues than anything from Hampton). You could uncharitably call the Gin monochromatic, but the more diplomatic rendering is 'patient' - and the Disease Reprise just turns the whole thing into liquid gold anyhow. Still, don't overlook the first set 'cause you're hung up on the Gin/Disease nastiness: BEK is a candidate for best Trey solo of the year (I pick 12/30's Taste, but...) and it's a wonder that this downright *evil* version of Stash didn't accidentally summon some demon creature. Or maybe it did - that'd explain what went down in Hartford, anyhow.
