Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Probably one of the more under looked shows from this year of riches.

This show has a great combination of two fan favorites, jams and great segues. Again the wealth of riches from this year may under play these jams and segues from this show but there's definitely a bit to check out.

Wolfman's really sets the mood early in the set with a nice little jam coming out of it. The first segue into Maze is pretty smooth, and it's peaky as usual. One of the big surprises to me from this show is the 20min Gin. Yes it is not odd for Gin to go the distance but a lot of times during this period it happens second set. This one is intense and blissful, kind of both sides of Gin. It goes into maybe the two best segues of the show with a great Makisupa, and and even better segue into AC/DC Bag. Just an outrages 1st set and it doesn't end there.

Chalkdust kicks everyone in the butt from the get-go. The jam gets slightly out there before an excellent segue into Taste (they had a lot of good segues into Taste this year). Taste is standard but that's pretty great from this year. Ya Mar is fun and the drums are pretty cool to listen to. However I think it's likely the weakest part of the show. Yet another abrupt but good segue into Ghost. Ghost gets particularly out there, but not in terms of a long jam. Just a strange space jam. And one last segue into Character Zero which....Surprise Surprise...Rages!

And the big cherry to put on this show is Theme as an encore. Every theme from this year is fantastic and this is no exception.

Overall a very strong show for any year that shouldn't be missed by any fan of this year.
