Review by the_Crested_Hogchoker

the_Crested_Hogchoker I caught this show and the NYE Runaway Golf Cart Marathon the next night. A noticeable trend was that just about every jam segment was begun with a lot of patience, so there was jam potential all over the place. DWD and Carini got the full treatment, and created some great landscapes. As a fan of dark Phish, Carini was right up my alley.

Number Line is a true set killer and does its thing here. The tremendous amount of mood and momentum built by the Carini jam never comes full swing after that turd hits the punchbowl, and the Julius>Slave is far from a fitting end to a set that began with such wonderful jamming.

The first set is solid. I loved the Divided Sky. Ride Captain Ride was a tasty snack and Ya Mar through MFMF is pretty meaty. Antelope, like Julius and Slave needed some more gasoline in its fire.
