Review by dr_strangelove

dr_strangelove Standard fare show: good songs, played reasonably well, with a couple of standout solos and mini-jams. I particularly enjoy the brief Purple Haze tease during Suzy. I am not a fan of the slow-tempo Caravan, however. I'm sure they've played it faster than this? Anyways, highlights:

1) Bathtub Gin: Trey's solo at the end is sort of slopped around in the best way possible. Dissonant and off-kilter timing. I'll take it!

2) Run Like an Antelope: Very strong version, the dissonant build with Trey and Page is great and Fishman's drumming is propulsive.

3) Reba: The jam at the end of this Reba is really thrilling stuff! Trey soars and his tone is gorgeous, Mike's is booming all over the place. My favorite moment of the whole show.

4) Mike's Song: Trey holds a note for an extended period of time that flirts with the boundary of "this is going on for way too long" and "this is awesome, keep going!". It helps that Page, Mike, and Fish are going nuts during this part of the jam.
