Martian_Monster So I'll be the first to start. Great opener for the 2012 New Year's Run. Solid first set with a "get your feat wet again" feel to the first three songs. I love the guitar and piano solos in Army and this one didn't disappoint. Then the first outside the box moments started to emerge. Tube, I felt was very exploratory even if it wasn't the longest. Nelli was solid as always then onto KDF. The "this time is gonna be different" line felt like an omen to me for hopefully the whole run but definitely for tonight. Free was beautiful as it always is then BAM! The heart of the show for me. Wolfman's with Little Drummer Boy in the middle. WOW! What a way to kick off the Holiday! This version is a must listen right now! Super funky and I LOVE PLINKO!!! 1st set down...time to put the kid to bed. Yes, I'm couch touring from sunny Southern California.

2nd set here we go. Little William Harpua went nighty night and it's time for the wife and I to spark up *huh huh* set 2!

Tweezer opener. I know this is gonna get serious and it does. This is what Tweezer's are made of. Maybe not quite Starlight quality but damn good. Worth an immediate listen IMAO. Then the symbol for Fishman starts ringing...Bowie?? I announce to my wife. No it's Maze she says. Damn it when she is right! Good Maze but nothing out of the ordinary. Then the Drummer Boy starts to emerge again and I catch the opening rifts of Twist interlaced in it. WOOHOO, I called one right for once. Twist is good and funky with plenty of Drummer Boy teases. This lands right into a flowing Theme that is just pristine. Not a fan of 2nd set Fluffhead's but this one is nice and tight. Set closes with a very nice Bowie and we're in the wraps for night one. Encore tidy's things up with a little Bounce and GTBT but no Tweeprise?? When will that show up. My vote is to close it all Monday night but we'll see what the boys have in store for us. One thing is for sure. "This time is gonna be different"...at least from last year!
