Review by Palmer

Palmer First I will say the police in downtown Rochester were like Night and Day. They were so chill before the show and transformed into maniac arresting machines after the show emptied. It was a strange thing to observe. It was a cold December day. ....the nights before Christmas and all through the house. SET ONE- Carini, wow. Sick sick sick energy from the fab 4. Next came-Jibboo > Train, good energy and it is not letting up anytime soon. Taste > Bug, Sparkle > Tube, Lawnboy, Sullivan > Twist, it continued to rain to the tunes of The PHISH. Some may say this show is a filler show and a one stop in Rochester just to put out music that were mere leftovers from Saturday's show. I disagree, a different energy was in place, it was like a hew haw in the Blue Cross Arena, people were dancing and grooving it out something fierce and continued to do so. I enjoyed the First Set it was unusual and as strange as the band playing.
SET TWO- Calling Chalkdust, Wrong again, Mikes > Meatstick > Hydrogen what the hell is going on here? Love it, this set two is becoming something of a monster, good version of Mikes as well. Meatstick was a nice treat sandwiched in between the Mikes and the Hydrogen groove. Weekapaug and Brian and Robert, another does of energy and calmness. I enjoyed the switch of emotional playing its what makes this band unique and something special. Jen Dances, one and done and thank God for that. Maze> Chalkdust > Fluff > Frankenstein. The best of the best, this was an awesome cluster of 4 songs i love. What a way to close the show. The encore was weak imo. Hello My Baby > Character Zero seemed to take away the energy of the prior two sets but it was still an experience that i will never forget, loved the second set in this one. Thanks Ra- chest- er.
