yEEt_1331 Definitely a sort of "breather" show from the absolute setlist and improvisational insanity that was the San Francisco weekend, but nonetheless pulled its own weight quite well. Ripping out of the gates with a 25-minute Disease is a good indicator of this, and honestly a return to some pedestrian first-set classics is a nice refresher after a murderer's row of improv. Keeps things interesting. Stash again was impressive, 2021 is no doubt an MVP year for Stash. Trey addressed the tragedy from Sunday night after Stash. No four song second set tonight, but that's perfectly fine. Twist was very good, and the first time they've stretched out that song this year I believe. A handful of standard renditions of Blaze On, Plasma, Leaves, and Sparkle, throw in a Lonely Trip debut, a killer 2001 and finally Sigma to close and you have a nicely-played second set format that looks pretty familiar to all the Set 2's in Atlantic City: a heavy hitter opener, some standard runthroughs of songs, maybe another jam or two, and a nice closer. I've seen some debate about a Drift encore, but for me it's a feel good sendoff to a pretty good show.
