Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Notable for the debut performance of Train Song, this show features an especially strong performance from Page. He's out front in the mix and takes the lead in a number of jams.

First set highlights include a Tweezer with sparse, staccato-like jamming at the end, the plaintive debut of Train Song and a furious Timber that packs a lot of muscle into a short time.

Page is prominent in the Theme during the second set and the solid and tight Reba that follows. Antelope has plenty of Page, but the band fumbles the re-entry to the jam after the "Bid you to have any spike" line. Simple>Caspian is a super smooth transition, and another Page highlight.

The Hood starts off quietly, but Trey forces the band to speed up at about 9 minutes and it finishes strong.

A fun listen for Page fans, though nothing except perhaps the Timber is truly memorable.
