gphishmon Arguably the best show of 2.0. The whole show is filled with creative, sparkling, devious, wicked jamming, starting with just the third song Piper. We're already in Type 2 territory as this jam changes keys to segue into Weekapaug, played at an insane tempo, meaning just right (slow Weekapaugs have become the norm in 3.0), finally completing the Mike's from the previous night. WOTC is jammed balls-out -- God, I wish I'd get to hear this one sometime.

The second set starts with a jammed-out Tube. This tune was built for a jam, but when's the last time you heard one go past 5 min, let alone 11? Just as they seem to be ready to go into a new theme or a new song, BAM! they're into the closing section. Bathtub Gin -- what more needs to be said? After nearly 40 minutes of awesomeness, I'm sure lots of folks needed a bathroom break, and Friday provided just that, going on for 9 soul-sucking minutes to make sure everyone who needed to got the chance to go before they brought the energy back with a raging Bowie.

I considered myself lucky to get a ticket to the previous night. While that was certainly a good show, missing this one was a pity. One of the classics.
