SlavePhan THE GOOD: The band certainly brought the goods the previous night, but it sounds like they reeled things in a bit for this one. Some highlights include a whirling Trey and Mike led jam in SOAM that provides a good 30 seconds of wonder. I enjoy this Foam, which is delicate and contains a wonderful silent jam. Divided Sky, Jim, and Maze, songs that the band was just crushing this tour, are also strong. This also marks the last version of Leprechaun and it's perhaps the band's best live version.

THE BAD: There's a handful of songs at this show that don't quite end as strongly as they begin. SOAM is of particular notice here. Lots of straight-ahead songs in this show also limit the spontaneity and variety of the show, compared to, say, the next night in Florida.

ETC: Page teases I Dream of Jeannie in Ya Mar (3:40). Ya Mar also contains some scatting by Mike. Page teases the James Bond theme in It's Ice (5:05) and the whole band play a Heartbreaker tease in Mike's (3:45). Trey called for Leprechaun after Mike's, but leaves Fish out of it as he starts Hydrogen. Trey thanks "Aaron and Scott" for hooking him up at the show during Daniel.

BOTTOM LINE: Straight ahead show with strong '93-era songs but nothing too out of the ordinary. 4/5
