Review by ohkeepa_ceremony

ohkeepa_ceremony Wilson and Funky Bitch: was a solid jumping-off platform for set 1 and played well. The crowd seemed downright ready as well.

the NMINML was standard fare and the Roggae was thick as the humidity. This to me was one of the highlights of the entire show.

Nellie Kane is always welcomed and was a good contrast to the dark Roggae...

Gumbo: once of my favorites. Unfortunately, I felt this Gumbo fell a bit flat and trey's solo was "meh" at best. Seemed to be that Trey was almost forcing himself through the song - certainly not the best of the night.

Birds: nice version with some good instrumentation. Trey certainly worked his way through this one and had some really nice parts and the crowd was rocking.

Sleep Again: a "bust out" of not played in 200+ shows... felt like it brought the crowd down a few notches. Nicely done...

Things People Do: another bluegrass rocker that was a really nice and a lot of fun with Page leading the way. Really liked this tune and hope it sticks around in the 1st set going forward. A lot of fun!

Limb by Limb: crowd was rocking here and deservedly so... thought this was core of the 1st and sealed the rest of the set.

Split Open and Melt, OKPC > Suzy was fantastic with the band rolling ahead.

Set II:

Fuego: dark and crunchy... was not as good as some earlier versions as the previous poster stated but was a nice start to the 2nd set. A fine version indeed.

Runaway > Jibboo: Some very good playing and Trey was feeling it. Some great playing here...

Timber: great version and some tight playing.

Slave: if I can get a Slave and a Gumbo in the same show I am a happy camper. My ONLY knock on this beautiful version was that I really wanted the boys to run with this a bit more. Otherwise a fantastic and beautiful Slave.

YEM: ah, YEM! any version and I am happy. As the precious poster mentioned this, I would imagine, is a divisive version. What I loved here was Mike and Fishman locking in and showing their chops. To me, those two were straight fire while Trey was rocking the Marimba. For this old fan I will be back to listen to this frequently and loved the weirdness.

Quinn: Nice send off that was rocking and fun...

All in all a very good evening. Would not say this show was a heater but a very solid show nonetheless with some great moments. Slave and YEM were my highlights along w/ Split. 3/5 for me...
