ENCORE: Carolina, Tweezer Reprise
The beginning of My Friend featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Antelope included I Feel the Earth Move and Barracuda teases. The prevalent rumor among audience members (aided, to some extent, by the band and crew helping spread the rumor) was that Neil Young would make a guest appearance. Trey teased Heart of Gold before Llama and Sugar Mountain before The Squirming Coil and in Lawn Boy. Tweezer contained Fire (Ohio Players) teases. After Big Ball Jam, the crew set up a folding chair, Trey’s acoustic guitar, and an extra microphone on stage. Trey introduced "Neil Young" to the roaring crowd, then went behind the drums and began playing the Hold Your Head Up intro with Fish appearing instead. Some friends sitting in the front row promptly hit Fish in the face with a pie. Fish sang a line of After the Gold Rush (with Page assisting on piano) before launching into Terrapin. After the second Hold Your Head Up, Trey joked that Bill Clinton would be helping out on saxophone for the next song prompting Page and Fish to tease Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1. Carolina was performed without microphones.

Review by DollarBill
I'm not sure what Trey is teasing at the beginning of the show, somebody get on that. Anyway, good Llama to open up first set, really rocking. Guelah was pretty good, but the monitor feedback continues. It was funny to hear Trey laugh before the Fly section because of the crowd's antics. Rift's timing continues to be a problem and the monitor feeds. Stash was good and had a nice diminished sounding jam. Very early for a good Coil, but they have been switching things up as of late. My Friend was just ok tonight. Paul and Silas was nice and dynamic. Fluff was good overall, but continued to have sound squeaks going on. Lawn Boy had a fun ending on it and Antelope made for a solid closer to a decent first set. Nice teases in Antelope as well.
A rocking Axilla to start the second set had a weak bridge section. Curtain was pretty good tonight. Good, solid Possum and Fee, and a faster, better Ya Mar keep this set rocking. Tweezer was a little loose at times, but good and long. Poor Heart was good and then the Balls come out to jam with a long ending while Trey gets his guitar back on. The funny Neil Young announcement and HYHU brings Fish out for jokes and a Terrapin. Trey had a little trouble with the lyrics to a rocking Cavern closer.
For the encores tonight: Shush yourself for a good Carolina and then rock out to the expected Tweeprise.
Better than last nights show, but still pretty average for this tour, I'm going to go three stars. Maybe three and a half if I could.
