Review by julius

julius Wow. Let me first say that I did not go to big cy. Having said that, this was the best show a have ever seen. The boys played that classic old building like it was a fifth member of the band.

KDF-was the first opener I've ever called (over 20 attempts) and it didn't disapoint. Cavern, foam and guelah were outstanding and the crowd was deafening during the glowstick war break.

The set then vaulted into Halloween Phase One when whole lotta love burst out of a blistering chalkdust. Crowd went crazy. The hahaha followed confirmed they wouldn't be playing zep tomorrow.

The rest of the first set was devastating. Walk, wolfman's undermind, bathtub, and coil were all as good as I've ever heard. The boys danced and laughed. Amazing set one ended on a high high high note as page twinkled the way out.

Meaning no disrespect to the rest of set two, I really felt like that zepplin medley we experienced was a gift to the faithful for being here the day before Halloween. The hard driving base lines and thrashing riffs seamed to be designed for that building. I lost count of the times I felt the bottom of my pants vibrating against the hair on my legs.

The rest of the second set maintained the incredibly high standard they had set early highlighted by a strong show of life and a heartfelt numberline.

A return to zep for GTBT, a fun monkey and a dizzying tweprise ended the best show I've seen.

I'm scared about tomorrow. They're going to tear the roof off that place.
