andrewrose This is an incredible show by any standards, and one of the strongest offerings the band has made since having returned in March of that year. The Disease opener is one of those quick, but sharp-as-a-knife kind of affairs, with some incredible soloing by Trey. Trey was really inspired AND on point on this night and it showed from the get-go. A nice laid back contrast in Ocelot followed, and the first set is full of welcomed rarities in Pebbles and Marbles, and Destiny. The Sneaking Sally is out of this world. A really great funky Sally jam to get started, followed by a vocal-jam breakdown, followed by an out of this world patient, melodic glory hose fest. Hear it!

Set two has tons to love as well. The calypso groove that emerges from the Light jam and then segues beautifully into Taste is delicious, and the Bathtub Gin probably still stands as the best 3.0 version to-date. A summer 97 throwback. Hood and then Slave encore to close? Sure. A+
