spreaditround SET 1: Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey: Cool little jam, had to have caught everyone by surprise.

Down with Disease: Holy Toledo – what a way to start a first set!!! First ten minutes is raucous, but the rest is very boring.

The Lizards: Not the tightest version I have ever heard but tough to complain about this song in the three slot in the first set.

Tweezer: The jam right out of the gate is eerily reminiscent of the July 15, 1998, California love version. Mike truly owns this segment. 97 cow funk at 13:13 to start closing this one out. I really like this Tweezer.

Back on the Train: Standard.

Water in the Sky: Standard

Bug: Standard

Julius: Nicely jammed.

First set summary: On paper this looks amazing. It is a solid first set and the tweezer is easily the highlight, and it has definite replay value. It's too bad they didn't do more with DwD.

SET 2: Gotta Jibboo: This jam seriously rocks and is super underrated. There is never any lead up whatsoever. >

Mike's Song: Solid >

I Am Hydrogen: Classic. >

Weekapaug Groove: Fish and Mike just dominate the middle portion of the jam, Page adding some nice color as well. Fantastic and patient jam. Trey takes the lead back at 8:45 and overdrive commences. This Weekapaug has tons of replay value!

Axilla: they easily could have gone with a ballot here but instead they choose to keep the energy sky high, much appreciated! >

Harry Hood: this is a below average version and it's weird that you can barely even hear the vocals at the end of the song >

Funky Bitch: this tune has only closed a second set three times all of which were in the 1.0 era. 11.6.96 and 7.6.97.

ENCORE: Boogie On Reggae Woman: Standard and very short. >

Driver: Trey's dedication to the couple from the 7.28.98 is awesome! >

Tweezer Reprise: ending the show on a serious high note!

Second set summary: The show is always going to be a dark horse selection for me. It has long been criminally underrated. I think a lot of that has to do with the folks that attended the show it was outdoors it was cold and cannot remember if there was rain involved or not but certainly that played a large part in how people felt about the show. Tweezer and Weekapaug are both fantastic from the show. I mean, how cool is it that they open the show with Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey??? I would rate this show a 3.75 out of five.

[1] Unfinished.

Everybody’s Got Something To Hide was played for the first time since October 31, 1994 (434 shows). Disease was unfinished.
