Camden, NJ
SET 1:

Down with Disease: Straight forward hell fire and finished. Fantastic way to open the show!

Guelah Papyrus: Standard.

My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own: Standard.

Foam: Standard.

Bathtub Gin[1] - Mind blowing that this is not a jamcharts version. The summer of Gin rolls on with another great version right here. This one stays in a straightforward pocket but shifts into the reverse reverb stuff around the 11 and a half mark or so. This one is not as good as Atlanta or Holmdel, but it’s still good and I would recommend it.

My Soul: Standard.

Heavy Things: Standard.

Fluffhead: Super clutch placement as this set was getting a bit rote with the previous two selections. Standard version.

When the Circus Comes: Standard.

Run Like an Antelope[2] - Awesome placement and great way to end the set.

SET 2: Runaway Jim: Intentions are clear here that they intend to take this one for a ride as early as the 8 minute range and Trey starts laying in big loops at the 9 minute mark. Up through the 15 minute mark, this one was fairly hairy. Lot’s going on to hold your intention but fairly intense. It mellows out for a good 5 minutes, lots of ambience in this section. They take there time to rebuild this one and they do just that as this one turns into a raging monster where Trey does his best impression of Hendrix. Total rager! This Jim reminds me some of the 8.11.98 version. However, this one is just more dynamic where as the 98 version has more of a meandering feel for more of it. This one is an easy all timer and highly recommended – this highlight and anchor of the show for sure!

Glide[3] - Standard.

Theme From the Bottom: Standard. >

Sand: Standard. Has the Die effect they debuted at 9.29.99 in 2001 starting at 7:25. Trey develops a catchy little theme in the latter third of this jam. They stop it completely and then reprise it. Would recommend.

Meat: Standard. >

Chalk Dust Torture: Standard.

Bittersweet Motel: Standard.


Waste: Standard.

Summary: One all timer and two good highlights in addition. To this point, this was the longest show of the tour clocking in at 2:58. Would rate this show a 4/5, which feels a touch strong…
