Review by Fathership

Fathership Set one of the much anticipated 2013 Halloween run is calm, predictable, and generally forgettable. Poor Heart brings some heat, KDF rocks and rolls, and Stash is dark, but this isn't a set worth revisiting to me.

The costume set is what it is. I think their decision worked out better in the long term than in the short term, as some fans disappointment of not hearing their favorite album really hurt perception of the new material at first. The debut songs were all welcome and I particularly enjoy Wingsuit, Fuego, Waiting All Night, Wombat, Devotion To A Dream, and 555 quite a bit. Definitely looking forward to some nasty jams next tour.

The third set begins with a magical one-two punch, a hard hitting, lighting fast Ghost jam sets the stage for a gorgeous 20 minute Carini to follow. Best Ghost of the tour BY FAR, with a seriously high energy classic rock jam segment as its coda. The Carini is astoundlingly good, with a memorable, mesmerizing Slave-like jam that might just best Hampton's incredible lumpy head funkathon from earlier in the month.

An average Birds follows, but it was a good call that kept Atlantic City rocking. Page leads the way in a stunning mid-set Harry Hood. The set could have ended there and I would be content, but Bug and Antelope are icing on this delicious third set.

Overall a very unique show, and one worth checking out. Hear the Ghost > Carini at all costs.
