Review by DollarBill
First set comes right out with a Rift that never really locks in, like they can't quite hear each other as the monitors get settled in. Very rough. Into a solid, rocking Wilson. Trey mentions Hendrix's birthday. Divided Sky has some rough spots towards the end but, overall is pretty good and dynamic. This is quickly becoming a Gamehenge set as a really good Forbin's follows up with a great story and a equally tight Mockingbird. Melt is also tight and has a great jam. Cool it down with a light, mellow Lawn Boy. Then bring it right back up with a nice tight Reba. Also a nice jam on the end. Llama rips as usual. Mound is getting really good and is a great Mike call. Memories is surrounded by the usual shushing of the times. Jim is a great closet for a good first set.
After Page and Fish comment about stupid f-ing hats given to them, second set starts of with a tighter Axilla. Much improved although Page is playing piano for his solo instead of organ. Sounds like Fish isn't ready as Trey picks right into a decent Poor Heart. Possum seems to go on forever as Trey wails away. Glide is a little too fast and suffers a bit on Trey's part. It's Ice is better than the last one I heard but, still has rough spots. McGrupp continues the Gamegenge saga into the second set. Pretty good considering it's rareness but, is unfinished as Trey goes right into Walk the Line. I personally don't like this song for them but, it is funny to hear Mike try to sing in all the key signatures and getting as low as he can. Bowie then continues the foolishness with various teases. Not a bad Bowie. The Horse puts Trey out there all alone and this one is rough. Silent, on the other hand, is not that bad. It's getting tighter. Another installment of Faht is dedicated to Hendrix by Fish and includes audience participation. Nicely done. A-Train is pretty sweet jazz as usual. Fish stops to praise Hendrix again. Cavern makes for a rocking closer complete with Jimi teases and a little Trey speech at the end.
Of course, after talking about him all night, they have to play Bold as Love for Jimi. Well done.
Nice show tonight. Lots of Gamehenge and Hendrix shout outs. Much better playing.
