Antelope included Simpsons and All Fall Down signals and Jean Pierre teases from Trey. Tweezer contained a Buried Alive tease from Trey and Page teased the theme to Star Trek before Terrapin. The Horse featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Amazing Grace was performed without amplification and was preceded by an a cappella rendition of The Eleven by a tenor in the front of the balcony.

Review by DollarBill
Jim serves as a good warm up for the first set. Foam was also quite solid, as is the standard Bouncing and a ripping Maze. Trey sounds a little out of tune in a reasonably played Esther. Divided Sky also suffers a bit. Glide was good. Punch is still not automatic yet, but getting better. IDK was full of nicknames for Fish again. Antelope was rocking and full of teases and a great jam to close up first set.
The rocking Axilla had an off spot from Mike and a few loose parts. Rift still has timing problems all over the place. Tweezer was a little sloppy, but has a great jam attached to it. Reba is spotty here and there, but the jam has the longest Trey held note I've heard in years! You can hear them laugh on stage after this one on the recording. Lawn Boy is a great way to relax for a minute before Mike plays HIS song. They really lay it on Mike in this one, mocking him the whole time. The jam was ok, not great. Then out of the blue, someone or Mike nails Mike's bass making a huge scene in a sloppy, rushed Hydrogen. Not sure what happened, but it seemed to carry over into a less than inspiring Weekapaug. Broken equipment or unruly character? Anyway, Trey does some funny accenting during the Horse. Silent was ok, not great as the timing is still tightening up. Then the Balls come out and they drag the end out as Trey gets on drums for a very long and lazy Terrapin. This one really seems to take forever. After a long outro drum solo by Trey the nagging of Mike continues with the inexplicable Walk the Line. The recording cuts off from here so, I'm not sure how the back end came out. Looks like pretty standard songs.
This show is experimental and jammy, but also sloppy, and screamy in the vocals at times. Great energy overall, but just average.
