Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw I think this show is pretty underrated. I see what has been said about some slop and warmup jams as this is the 2nd show in about 2 1/2 years. But I like a lot of the ideas that come out of the jams in these shows however sloppy or directionless.

CDT opens and rips and blasts the audience off into space right away. Gin is in a pretty weird 2nd song slot, it goes into a nice groove before going into atypical Gin hoseyness towards the end. Excellent BOTT it's a nice little taste of what will happen on 2/28. Stash is pretty average but not bad still. Character Zero has a great solo and excellent peaks that you would expect from it.

46 days makes it's debut with what starts off as a somewhat thunderous jam. Then it mellows out quite a bit for a little while as they try and find some kind of ground. But the thunder returns as they take us for yet another crazy Trey led roller coaster ride. Simple is extremely sloppy but the bliss jam after is quite nice. Antelope has a little stretch to it and has all the ferocity you would want, no complaints!

However silly Mexican Cousin is as a song, the guitar solo is no laughing matter. Trey just nails it!

Overall I quite enjoy this show, maybe it's just my taste being able to see past some of the faults of a warmup show.
