Review by WeatherReport

WeatherReport I found this show to be really enjoyable, and thought Mass MOCA was a really nice venue. It was my second time seeing Mike solo, the first time was at Toad's Place on 3/6/10. As much as I liked that show, this show really blew me away. The lights and onstage effects are much more elaborate than they were in 2010. I thought the light show was one of the best I've ever seen, anywhere. They had three reflective screens covering the backline of the stage, and had video images set for particular songs. I remember large female eyes during "Face", and some really cool gears everywhere during "Peel". The light up guitars were also pretty interesting, they added even more eye candy to an already colorful show. As far as song selection they played a lot of songs from Overstep, which made me happy, being I really like the album. They opened with a great version of Andelman's Yard, which they had also opened with when I saw them in 2010. The jam in Andelman's Yard has definitely grown a bit since 2010, this version went more "out there" during the jam section, and also seemed longer. Some other highlights for me were "Ether", "Traveled Too Far", "Surface", "Say Something", a cool version of the old Max Creek tune "Jones", and a "Yarmouth Road" encore. The energy level of this show was just great, you could tell the band was really into it. The crowd was pretty cool as well, with a mix of older and younger fans. I didn't see too many over-spun tweakers, or slobbering drunks, which was nice. The artwork in and around the venue made the whole experience extra special, a cool venue makes any show better. I hope they decide to release this show, I'd love to hear it again.
