spreaditround Taste: Very consistent Page solo with a nice, gradual build that he creates. Trey crushes his solo, it’s fantastic and a must hear. But what holds this one back from the very best like so many from 97 and 03 would be the ending is mess. But cool way to open the show and we are off and running.

Carini: First ever naked dude lyrics due to the naked dude in Madison a couple of nights ago. Other than that, this about as vanilla a version as you will find.

Love Me: Standard.

Ride Captain Ride: Opening notes attract a roar from the crowd as this was the next version played after the huge bust out at Deer Creek from 3 months earlier.

Fee: Nice jam following the composed song.

Paul and Silas: Standard.

Roggae: Standard.

Water in the Sky: Standard.

Stash: This gets dissonant at 8:50. Lots of tension building! Crowd roar at 10:20 in appreciation of all this. Return to normal theme at 10:50. Big, big peak at 13:03. Really like this Stash and would recommend – plenty of relistening value!

Cavern: Standard.

SET 2:

Chalk Dust Torture: Standard.

Meat: Oof. >

Rock and Roll: Standard. >

Down with Disease: Tons of reverse reverb in this one. Trey plays hardcore rock God on this one. This one is ALL Trey. Smoked. 4 minute chill ambient jam tacked on to the end. Would recommend this version, I am definitely a fan. >

Piper: Standard. >

Wading in the Velvet Sea: More mellow than usual.

Run Like an Antelope: White hot, Trey rock god stuff. Just absolutely smoked! Would recommend for sure!


Been Caught Stealing: Great encore!

Summary: First set has a great opener, then a bunch of meh, and a strong, late second set Stash. Second set does not really have much in the way of exploration but if you are into Trey led smoke shows, then you should check DWD and Antelope. They blitzkrieg’s. I think the current rating of .net suits this show: 3.86/5 (100 ratings)

Replay Value: Taste, Stash, Down with Disease, Run Like an Antelope
