Review by LefthandMonkeywrench

LefthandMonkeywrench Reviewing years down the road this show still sticks out in my head for the second set Heartbreaker teases. I feel like you never hear much about this show but definitely worth a listen. I would give the show something between 4 and 5 stars but because I have to go with those two options it was more than a 4 for me.

First set was pretty standard. 5 years later I do not go back and listen to the first set. Second set starts off with a rockin' Rock and Roll and takes off from there. Rock and Roll was definitely (and still is) a great second set opener jam vehicle which blasts off into the rest of the Heartbreaker teased set. I remember taking a video towards the end of the Heartbreaker jam where they got some crazy little jam happening before they jump into Makisupa. The rest of the set is sprinkled with returns to Heartbreaker that made it a memorable show and its always good to get Character Zero to end second set and not encore.

My only gripe about the encore was for the third year in a row they encored with A Day in the Life. Now don't get me wrong, I love A Day in the Life and waited a long time to catch it but Alpharetta 2011, Atlanta 2012, and then Alpharetta 2013 all had A Day in the Life! (Not to mention Tuscaloosa 2015 but they did take a year off.) I don't know what it is about the Southeast but something must make them want to play it every time that they are in the area. This particular year came with the typical Tweeprize show closer so that will always send you home happy.

To wrap things up, do yourself a favor and listen to the second set and encore if you are looking for a fun set that I don't hear mentioned much.

-and as always, see you in Alpharetta this year.
