Review by billy_croaker

billy_croaker I understand the controversy surrounding this show. I personally liked it. The song selection made me laugh out loud several times. What some refer to as “leftovers” I perceive as “butcher’s cuts”. Many of the tempos were downright frantic (buried alive, my sweet one, mound...) and it felt like they (and we) were barely hanging on. Chalk Dust Reprise accentuated this fun theme of a band of crazed, musical windup toys spinning out of control. Downright hilarious.
Petrichor was as tight a version as I have ever heard. Just beautiful. Everyone should have seen this one coming since Charleston was the place where it debuted in 2016.
I’m not a huge fan of Soul Planet or Rise Up/Come Together, but these versions caught my attention. Extreme ok songs that were played very well.
The encore was a huge treat. Pebbles and Marbles gets me every time. Izabella was the highlight of the evening.
