Review by LocustTheLurker

LocustTheLurker The sound was a bit patchy for the first couple tunes but they sound great on the recording. The Horse was aborted!(for the record, I do not support equine abortion in ANY form). The gallon of water was misplaced somewhere around the time of PYITE but if I'm being honest it was pretty cumbersome and a human may not need to consume a gallon of water during a show. Suzy rocked and the setbreak was essential although it was a bit odd looking forward to hopefully tripping LESS hard by the start of set 2.

Set 2 is where it really starts to get good and it is evident that Kuroda has blown most of the lighting budget for the whole run on night 2 alone (excellent decision Toph!) Crosseyed was the fun enough to snap me back into the groove and then Slave was probably the most therapeutic performance that I've experienced. Freak out averted and now we're feeling GOOD. Light was a solid version from before I came to hate the song. Theme, Golgi, and Sand are songs by Phish that were played.
Now the troubling part, BDTNL 2nd to last. A little late in the show to be eating more doses, but hey, I love the song and tradition is tradition. Antelope was good but confusing. It kinda sounded like it had a "silent jam" towards the end but I later concluded that it was just encore break. A silly mistake sure, but silence and the lack of music can be eerily similar. Anyways, since I hadn't figured that out yet it was shocking to hear them transition into GTBT out of the silent jam and I was very eager to hear the return to Antelope. But then they just stopped playing and left... all in all, still a pretty good show.
