Review by kevtree

kevtree I'd just like to make a point in reference to the review by Itch_to_the_nag: sure the no repeats thing is an endeavor, but based on the fact this show is insanely dense with songs, I think it's silly to blame that feat for the lack of jams and poor song choice (timing). Considering all of the options they had, they could have strung things together better, or if they were feeling it, jammed out half of the songs in the second set. Sometimes IT just doesn't happen, and that was tonight. My interpretation was more the following... they were maybe exhausted and things weren't syncing up, and so Trey made a call to go out with a bang (in a way) and play a sheer quantity over quality show. Like hey, look at all of these songs we still have to play. Sure, it's gimmicky, didn't really make for a good show, and has already been done before, BUT I think conflating it to the reason the show didn't vibe is wrong.

Sick encore. Not so sick everything else.
