MrDougDoug This show is bound to be completely forgotten by time, but I want to say that I absolutely loved this second set. I feel like Trey really wanted the Energy to be the """Ruby Waves""" of the weekend and put a lot of pressure on himself and the band to deliver a big jam out of an unexpected track (a move they had been pulling all weekend with Fluffhead, Number Line, Ass Handed, Moma), and it wasn't quite connecting. Instead of trying to blow the roof off, he just decided to have take off the pressure and have some well-earned fun. That Jibboo was among the most perfectly placed of all time, and completely re-built the band's mojo. Soul Planet was rapturous. The compound bend riff that Trey makes up, then re-interpolates into a non-bendy version is sublime. The rest of the set felt like a 1992 set 20 years later. Reba had everyone in my section of the lawn crying. Martian Monster > Broken Heart Attack > HYHU > Martian Monster was as old school antic fun as it gets. Possum > Slave was a perfect cap. Not a jam-filled donut kind of set, but an incredibly unique set to see in 2022.
