Review by JordanThePhisherman

JordanThePhisherman The formula for a satisfactory show with tasty jams is digging down deep, finding that pocket, hitting it until its just right, and THEN flowing towards another section. This has been seen in the best 2013 shows, as opposed to the mindless meandering, where the band just can't give a groove a chance, so they move to a new theme, which is probably triggered by Trey's ADHD and angst. Its probably the biggest struggle as a 3.0 fan.

That was not the case tonight. If a good groove was founded, it was kept until liftoff, and then they would continue finding another groove. DWD > Carini truly showed that. It was all about the rhythm tonight. I haven't listened back to it so I can't really give a detailed report, frankly, I'm a little scared to listen back to it myself since it could possibly give me another impression and hinder the memory that was so stunning, (Cypress'd).

I don't really have more to say. Setlist choices were superb and they kept the second set short and sweet without pounding on songs at the end that very few want to hear, like Wading.

First set didn't phase me to much, but I remember the It's Ice was pretty dirty. Some other songs were a bit rusty like Roggae in particular.

Thanks for letting me spew my thoughts .net. I don't review shows often but the after effect of it sure is nice.

I can't wait for NYE. I won't be there tonight (the 30th), but I'm sure it will kickass.
