spreaditround SET 1: Runaway Jim: Page and Trey ratchet up the energy in this Type I rager.

Fluffhead: In the two slot? It’s on!!! Rocking version right here.

Taste That Surrounds: Not good, so awkward.

Horn, I Didn't Know: Standard.

Rift: Blistering pace.

Stash: Outstanding! This jam will sneak up on you and then tear your head off. Not even a jamchart version which is ridiculous.

Fee -> Suspicious Minds > Hold Your Head Up: Fun segment right here, but to close the set? Questionable. Fishman blowing lyrics. Not great.

First set summary: Started like a house a fire with Jim and Fluff. Rift and Stash were awesome, and Fee was quite good. Why close the set with the Fish antics? Odd. Not a fan.

SET 2: Also Sprach Zarathustra > David Bowie: Evil chanting from Trey starting at 7:20 and carrying through 9:34. Sets an intense tone. Trey singing/skatting in the mid 10’s, eerie stuff. There is not an epic peak to this one and the ending is messed up so for me this is a very strong Bowie, but it has its limitations.

Dog Faced Boy, Poor Heart: Standard >

Simple: Trey on percussion rack, gets quite trippy in the last couple of minutes with some cool effects >

McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters: Good as always but not close to 10.11.95 >

Keyboard Army, Bouncing Around the Room, Possum, ENCORE: Life on Mars? – Pretty standard run of songs to close this one out.

Second set summary: Bowie and Simple have replay value but this second set is not quite up to par versus what this tour had become acclimated to since 10.19. I would rate this show a 3.75 out of 5. They were due to hit a lull after a string of super-hot shows and this was it.
