Review by DollarBill

DollarBill First time at the State Theater, eighteenth show of fall tour. Pretty good recording. I would love to hear the sound check as well.

Golgi goes back to the opener spot tonight. Good performance, nothing too crazy. Followed by a decent Llama, again, good but, not great. Foam was ok, with some monitor tweaking going on. Sounds like Fish is teasing Stash on the drums. Fee has weak parts from Mike. Poor Heart was good as was Melt. Fishman is on fire tonight. Great drumming. More monitor feedback though. IDK makes its first appearance in December. Tonight features "Tubbs" on the washboard. I believe this is only the second washboard solo I've heard at this point. ATR has a long intro with secret language. This is the first time I've ever heard that in ATR. Again, great drumming by Fish during Trey's antics. Reba was pretty good, maybe a few spots here and there. Adeline was it's normal self. Cavern is a good closer to an ok first set.

Second set starts off with Trey giving Page a hard time about tuning his piano. Rift is not very tight tonight. Tweezer is also disjointed at times and just doesn't make much of an impact for me. Sounds like they are teasing some other song which may account for the off sound. Tela was ok. My Sweet One was good and included the Big Ball Jam. The last note vocally was terrible. Maze was good, although it sounds like Trey pulled himself out of tune because Glide was terrible. I'm mean really awful. YEM wasn't much better. I mean the playing was good, it's just out of tune, making everyone else sound timid and unsure. The vocal jam was funny, featuring a call out to Chris repeatedly. Right into HYHU, Fish thanks some girl for the pineapples? Love You has the usual band intros and a reggae section. Walk the Line was ok as Mike struggles through the vocal modulations. Oh Kee Pa also makes its December debut and was very rough. Suzy was equally sloppy and included more monitor feedback and tuning problems. Kind of a forgettable second set.

The encores were missing from two different sources I checked. Looks to be standard fare for this tour.

First set beats the second tonight. Great drumming from Fishman, and great vacuuming I guess.
