Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover A Tweezer and Scent of a Mule with some unique moments are the musical highlights of this show.

Opening with Makisupa, Trey announces he "woke up at 40 minutes to 5". Keywords sound like "Treybien...Gauge."

The first slow version of Poor Heart is met with a rousing cheer, and I have to admit that the song works better in this arrangement. It’s a shame they shelved this incarnation after three performances.

Stash has a unique ascending chord jam with that spacey 1995 tone and hints at the James Bond theme before before returning to the Stash theme. Rest of the first set is nothing special

An upbeat musical sequence opens the second set, but the highlight of the show is clearly the Tweezer. At around 14 minutes Trey gets on the percussion kit and the jam gets some nice, slow funkiness going on with some crashing, piano-led jamming reminiscent of Bathtub Gin in places.
At about the 18 minute mark, Tweezer sounds like it’s going to go into Free, but returns to the Tweezer theme instead. The song ends by winding down slowly until it stops completey and Trey starts Billy Breathes.

The Scent duel is very unique and features Trey singing/babbling nonsense, and even some full-on vocal jamming with Mike chanting, something I don't think I've ever heard in Scent before.

A smooth Hood is strong but hardly standout. The first two Trey solos in Suzy have noticeable Tweezer teases that add a little extra fire to a short but sweet version.
