Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover The final night in Florida was the band's seventh show in eight nights, and they run out of gas (or fresh ideas) by the end of the second set.

First set highlights include a short and furious Jim and the Simple>Timber. This Timber features the most inspired playing of the night. Trey also shouts "Hey Guyute!" repeatedly in the background during the first section of Guyute, something I've never heard before.

A Day in the Life is such a strange second set opener, and the only time the band ever used the song in this position. A 16 minute Bowie is pleasant, but has no notable moments. A mid-set Ha Ha Ha would suggest some hijinks or weirdness to come, but the Hood that follows is very pedestrian.

Despite the presence of Butch Trucks (or maybe because of this), the Possum never really lifts off, though this version does have Fishman adding some trombone.

The encore appears to have been an off-the-cuff decision to play a song with Buffet. The strange guest pairing isn't bad, but was I'm sure more fun in person.

A subdued end to the Florida run, with a bit of novelty factor the only thing that stands out .The Orlando show two nights earlier is really the best show of this week in Sunshine State.
