Review by MrPalmers1000DollarQ

MrPalmers1000DollarQ Some really good meat dispersed throughout both sets off this Spring '92 show. I've heard whisperings of some other tremendous performances from earlier in April of this year, which I'll have to check out, but I think that this does a fairly good job of representing the peaks of the band's abilities at this point in the timeline. Great diversity of tracks and jams that cover ground from tried and true compositions (Suzy, Rift, Tela), quirky interludes (Eliza and a standalone Catapult), gimmicky Fishman tunes, fun Forbin narration, shredfests (Possum and Weekapaug), and jams that include cacophony (SOaM, Bowie, Mike's) and beauty (Tweezer).

The clearest highlight of the show is the second-set Tweezer which, through a series of modulating legato motions, meanders into a glorious and melodic A major - D Major jam. The transition out of this section hits hard as the band hits on a Tweezer Reprise-esque movement. I'd round out my top three with SOaM and Mike's, which both showcase some really excellent dissonant shredding from Trey and the band's ability to keep up and follow the leader. Weekapaug has some nice type II moments baked in as well that distinguish this Mike's Groove suite as a particularly meaty specimen.
