Review by DollarBill

DollarBill Second night at the Roseland brings more good times and guest stars! The fourth show of the tour picks up where last night left off with a good mix and good recording.

First Golgi of the year to open up is pretty well played. Foam was really loose tonight. Wilson was good with a nice middle jam. My Friend brings out the acoustic again and was just ok with a loose ending. Maze is great as usual. First Horn of the year sounds good as does Divided Sky. Maybe just a few spots off here and there. Lawn Boy is a nice little jazz relief. Wedge is a great song, but I still can't get over the differences the early versions had. Bouncing is standard. Antelope was good, although the big cut off sounded off, as Trey literally was cut off. Not a bad first set.

Rocking Chalk Dust to open the second set leads us into the first Mound of the year. Nicely done tonight, right into a good Stash. Then to slow it down with a mid-set Adeline? Also the first one of this year. Tight ATR tonight. Mike's gets the special treatment with claims of "This is my song", and so on from Mike and Trey. Nice dynamic jam, so nice Trey pulled himself out of tune for Hydrogen, which was not too bad considering it was the first one of this year. Weekapaug was good and also dynamic. Ah, another new Lifeboy still sounds a little too rocking for this eventual soft favorite. Pen was nice and tight until the very end. Then the balls come out before a brief Fishman teaching of Lengthwise. Funny as usual. No HYHU outro tonight as they go right into a rough Buried Alive, also the first one of this year. Trey is very soft in the mix at this point as Popper wails away. Possum continues the Popper mini set still with a rough mix.

The false starts on Fire are laughable while shunning Mike, but putting another guest on bass doesn't really make this one any better. This version is awful because the band totally looses the real progression of the song for quite a while, leaving everyone to just solo over nothing. The end of this one is welcomed.

Good show even though the guests didn't really make it better for me, I'm bumping it up to four stars for the novelty factor and all in all good solid playing from the actual band.
