Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Not my favorite show of the tour but it's got some nice bits and surprises for sure!

The segue into 2001 (in a bizarre slot) is perfect and shows meaning to the opening duo of songs. Tweezer (also in a weird spot) has a nice little jam to it. It's basically the same cowfunk jam you get all year out of Tweezer but still nice to listen to.

2nd set has a surprising Saw it again opener with a nice stretch to it. Piper has a surprisingly mellow jam, and I'm assuming one of the first real jams out of it which is very significant considering the damage it will do in the future. Caspian has a nice little jam after that is very bipolar. At first it sounds similar to the 11/23 Gin but then it cools down, only to go back to a thrashing conclusion.

The only other highlight from this is the Antelope to close out the show. It is great on every possible level that Antelope can be. Great execution, nice little stretch, fantastic conclusion. That's how it should be played always!
