Bob_Loblaw Average 1997 is still good.

The show starts out with a typically Theme for 1997 which means a great Theme. Dirt is a very strong version for a song still deep in it's infancy. Ghost (another baby at the time) gets a really nice jam that is nice despite covering common ground of jams before.

A new (and soon to be rearranged) Olivia's Pool takes the experimental freshman set 2 opener spot. It rips quick and goes into a very non traditional Antelope. This freak Antelope veers away from it's typical mid section into deep space. It quickly simmers and builds to an ending that holds more weight because of the build, amazing Antelope. Twist moves into a nice evil jam before drifting into mellow space, fantastic early version (see a theme here?). Smokin Taste (what else is new?). Coil is fantastic and has a very inspired and long piano solo at the end.

Possum is a great encore, enough said.
