lincolnfrog First set was weird from the start with the half-time funk llama. Rest of set Maze was my only lifeline.
Second set Wedgie unexpected. Didn’t jam though, then into Golden Age. GA jam really nice and then crash into ambience. I think Trey felt like it was going major and decided to throw the composed part of Reba in the middle then back into uptempo major bliss. Reba totally smoked, probably best I have seen live. Mike’s was psychedelic insanity and blew me away. Excellent Ghost emerges out of a potential Mikes 2nd jam (maybe they are going to make it a coin flip now?). No quarter perfect placement and Trey brought his FTW shreds to that mother. Weekapaug crazy peak felt good from the pavilion to me. Weird half-2nd jam in paug and then First Tube with a flub in the delay part from Trey (rig trouble?). Farmhouse encore sees Trey tuning and more rig trouble as he fails to play a solo. Fire finishes with a bang with more Trey shreds.
I got the sense that there is another change in Trey tonight besides the practice from FTW. I think he also saw a glimpse of the band’s mortality and legacy and is just grabbing the shows by the balls like they are his last. Look at him in first Tube. Heard similar from Zero at Mann.
