frankzappasmustache2012 Couch turred.

First Set:

Solid. Divided sky had a flubbed section, but was extra jammy at the end. Bott was nice and funky. Page and Mike killed their solos in Ya Mar. Horn and My Friend were nailed and Antelope was a rager.

Second Set:

DWD: Covered a lot of ground in 20 minutes. Went into some deep space with Trey using a lot of effects. Really pretty. Started picking up steam again and then faded back out and then out of nowhere Trey and Mike and Page all pick up with a sweet Zeppelin-esque riff for a nice peak. Fades out into...

Twenty Years Later: Pretty normal. I love this song anyways. Goes into...

Carini: Wow. This was DARK. Seriously. The main theme faded out into a creepy effects laden jam that at times resembled the IT Waves. Page really shined here. He took over the role of melody while Trey and Mike and Fish created a dark atmosphere in the background. This eventually faded into...

BDTNL: I know what you're thinking. People love to hate this song, and at first glance the placement seems awful. But I actually...really liked the placement. Really. I think it worked perfectly coming out of the terrifying entity that was Carini. Out of the dark came something light and joyous. As silly as that sounded I really think it was brilliantly placed. It was the perfect counterpoint to the Carini before it. Trey and Page also do some nice work at the end. This goes into...

Julius: This jam seemed to have a little extra energy in it. After the mindfuck of the preceding songs everybody needed a nice rocker. Hit a great peak.

Slave: Double peaker!!! Beautiful build, especially Page. Great peaks.

Encore:

Hood: The intro was funny. Very loose and playful. Trey nailed the Mr Miner riffs. The jam was incredible though! Very pretty build with great interplay and then the peak...I'm not religious, but I'm pretty sure I saw god during this peak.

Show of Life: This is a great song every time it's played. Great Closer.
