Review by JesmineTheFamilyBeserker

JesmineTheFamilyBeserker Couldn't have possibly asked for a better first show. Going into this one I had very low expectations since I saw what they had already done on this run and thought that song selection would make this one a true snoozefest. Big wrong. First set was perfect. Perfect. No question. As soon as Trey came on stage he did a little muted 16th note funk thing to check the amp and my friend and I looked at eachother, no question that Trey was going to be locked in. Landlady opener was electric, 35,000 wooks getting the fuck down. Amazing. From that point on really no lulls until the headier part of the carini jam that didn't go anywhere before getting into the next songs. Overall though second set was great. I'm not sure if we all just burnt out from dancing through the first but the second set was way headier and more calm which I think was appropriate, you'll hear people say there were no peaks but in honesty who even still had gas in them to keep dancing by that point? The mikes groove was really great and the hydrogen was like distinguishable which is cool because a lot of the times you don't realize when its been played. Piper was really great, it seemed to get faster with the crowd as everyone found what little energy they had left to start jumping. First tube was great, it was cool to see Trey get loose, I think his guitar-less dancing before the YEM vocal jam oughta get a footnote too. Really cool little moment. And the vocal jam was top notch, even rhytmic at some points I was definitely dancing. CK5 made this part soar. Number line was great too stop being bitter. 10/10 shredder. Worth the 6 hour drive. Go to re-listen and bump.
