Review by E_Wolfe

E_Wolfe In my opinion(& that's all that it is), I like this show more, and rate it higher than 7/30. I love Esther, and it was played very well on the 30th, but the remainder of the set, FOR ME, was alright. I got my Icculus>Mockingbird quite a while ago(and more than once), so I generally find myself waiting until they're over. You get my point. Drowned I thought was decent ambiance, but not spectacular, and the true winner for me of the whole show was Assy-Toes....just fantastic weirdness.
I'm rambling here- my point is, I really enjoyed the opener and Buried Alive combo, I love Meat and this one didn't disappoint. A strong Maze & set one closer, and I'm left happy. Get into that Mike's, and HOLY-SH*T-NOW-WE'RE COOKIN', then that Taste?! I believe my text to one of my buddies was "JEEEEE-ZUZ" and his response after another couple of minutes was "OH MY GOD!" -40 minutes of top-notch improvisation. Wingsuit for a landing-pad kept things fairly intense, and a fun Sally for a 4th quarter dance-fest into a fun and different 'Paug?!! What's not to love?! Altho I can recognize the enjoyment it would provide for those IN-ATTENDANCE, I'll take any of this over a 17-minute Harpua narration any day.
Regardless, I've loved the entire run and am glad the band is having fun, as we all are.
PS- My buddy and his friends created and got the 'Is This Still Lawn Boy?' shirt up to Trey. Xtra points for 7/30.
