Review by Cerias

Cerias I had great fun last night, much like the night before. My son and I were close to our spot from the night before, and the sound was beautiiful (about 40 feet from the stage, between Trey and Mike). It was noticeably louder than Night 1, but still not too loud.

As some others have noted, it was a little more uneven than Friday's show. I love Buried Alive, which I actually thought they were going to open with Night 1, but it came tonight instead - much appreciated. AC/DC was standard (meaning well-done) and Wolfman's was tight and rocked nicely. Mike's new song Yarmouth Road was next, and it has yet to grow on me. Same with Number Line for that matter (which came later). Fee>Halfway to the Moon, The Wedge was a strong trio. Haley's was its usual fun self, followed by a good Gin. Not the best, not the worst, and I song I really love, so I'm always glad to hear it. Mound, Gumbo was solid, and Antelope reached its usual frenzied heights and was a good set closer.

Chalkdust was a good one, though it being unfinished was kinda weird. Light followed, with (as someone else noted) a 50 ways to leave your lover quote. It was brief, but noticeable. I think another reviewer mentioned that Light through Number Line seemed a little hurried. I agree. Not that it was bad, there were some really nice moments within that span, and to be honest, just having the privilege of being out there with fans of like mind and a band enjoying themselves for our sake (as well as their own) is something to be thankful for. On the Road Again, Tweeprise was a nice encore, and appropriate. I look forward to the last show tonight, before my own personal break until Halloween.

Oh, and I would be remiss not to give another shout out to the crew we were hanging with the night before. Unbeknownst to us, they turned out to be about 5 feet behind us though we came in at different times. It was nice to see you guys again, and hope to tonight as well! Until tomorrow ...
