play_it_leo89 The highlights of this show have been duly noted, and rightfully so.

But overlook the acoustic mini-set at your own peril!

To do so is to ignore an important part of the transformation and growth of the band amidst one of the most important eras in their history. Yes, it breaks up the flow of the second set - an inexcusable act in the eyes of some - but as a very different sort of "breather" (different compared to what they're doing these 4.0 days, anyway; it certainly wasn't different in fall of '94), it's a wonderful look into what makes them tick, what inspires them, what makes them truly joyful - and as a fan, I always appreciate getting to see that. Also, listening to these songs it's astounding how impressive their musicianship really is, attempting different arrangements, different styles and in some cases different instruments than they're more used to.

Viva l'acoustic mini-set! Viva la bluegrass!
