Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw An extremely Normal show for Hampton.

Piper starts things off pretty hot. Meat is a nice little surprise in the 2nd slot. Jibboo dives into a jam early with the loop kicking in. It strolls through a serene landscape. Water in the Sky is a top shelf version. Trey has a near perfect solo, a must hear. Twist ends the set with a nice slow groove in the middle.

Birds of a Feather is a slightly stretched out type 1 version. Moma is pretty straight forward, but has a cool little ambient jam coming out of it. Bug followed by Jennifer Dances is an ill advised choice. And unfortunately like some of these slow combos throughout this year, it does not pay off at all. SOAM is the highlight of the show. It is a chaotic, hypnotic pulsing mess, but it all works somehow.

Cool three song encore. Breaking out Old Home Place. Coil is also very solid. And Loving Cup is Loving Cup.

You would think the Combo of coming off the heels of 12/16, being at a legendary venue, and being the tail end of the tour would make this show more memorable. But it really isn't.
