Review by CreatureoftheNight

CreatureoftheNight What a second set! Disease, although a warm up for things to come, showed that this Saturday Dick's was all about type II jamming. Familiar territory eventually led us to blissville and smiles were seen all around. Trey hit the What's the Use line several times before descending into the abyss, reminiscent of Alpine 2010. The transition was more or less following the set list, but I prefer the 2014 combo overall. The Carini that followed got right to the point and built to a HUGE peak. Trey tried to smoothly transition into Light, but eventually put on the breaks to keep things moving. The -> into Light isn't easy, and we will hear many more attempts in the future. Just like Carini, the Light was focused from the start. A typical calypso jam got very interesting, reluctant woos from the crowd and a huge funky jam straight from Page's House made this the jam of the night. Throw this Light up to the rafters and now we have three big jams already in the second set. Shortest Fuego ever led to a divine Slave. The band has played this song often this year, and passionate playing from Trey elevated this version immensely. Building on Friday's show, Saturday Dick's rises near upper crust of 2014. Looking forward to tonight!!!
