Review by TheEmu

TheEmu I thought the first set of this show was standard-great to slightly above-average great. Trey goes off pretty good in Weekapaug, and the Possum is also pretty fiery. Bouncin' ends awkwardly, and there are some weak spots in Reba, but the Reba jam has its merits, and the set is overall solid. The second set has a real spark to it. The AC/DC Bag is interesting, as Trey plays at kind of a loping tempo while the rest of the band is following the standard Bag tempo. I liked this little change up, but the standout of the show is Tweezer, which is all kinds of tasty. In the bridge between verses, everyone just gets locked in all of a sudden, and the first half of the jam is sickeningly good. Things kind of level out in the middle, but then it comes to a screaming (literally) conclusion. Page calls it "Tweezer So Cold" but it's real real HOT. The energy from that Tweezer pretty much resonates through the rest of the show, with a nice Ya Mar and blazing Good Times, Bad Times, not too mention a good A Train and its bizarre companion, BBFCFM, in the encore. What a weird pairing that is, especially to end a show, but it works for me. Second set Tweezer wins me over here and makes me bump this one to four stars. So cold, so hot!
