Review by Feetoid

Feetoid Shouldn't it be Fluffhead -> Also Sprach Zarathustra? I thought this was one of the best improvised transitions of the weekend, definitely meriting it a -> rather than a >, just sayin.


Other than that, hearing Weigh for the 2nd time ever was nice, albeit sloppy. Lengthwise -> Maze was a trip, I loved it. Another 3.0, SF, first set Mound, should've seen that one coming. Timber was my favorite 1st set jam and featured some excellent CK5. During Axilla, the dude next to me pulled me aside to say, "this is the best Trey coke song ever!" whatever the hell that meant but it was funny so I just kept dancing. The guitar riffs of First Tube echoed beautifully inside the confines of the BGCA as the set closer (I couldn't help but think of the First Tube shirt I'd seen the night before with the Graffix jester on it). Aside from what I've mentioned it was definitely a very bluesy 1st set which was a nice contrast to the "fogfunk" from last year (i.e. Alumni>Letter>Alumni... Jesus).

I called the Rock and Roll 2nd set opener as they walked out. Must've been that first set Mound like Outside Lands. It was excellent and I prefer it to the praised, ambient Long Beach version. I couldn't put my finger on that Jessica tease live, it drove me nuts. My guitar playing friend nailed it and definitely let me know about it after my R&R call that's for sure. BDTNL & Joy were misplaced "vibe killers" but the latter bothered me more. Fluffhead was damn near perfect and again, the transition into 2001 was sick and I think underrated with a simple > and that's all I have to say about that. Slave was very good but I wish they'd just segued 2001 into a 2nd set SOAM. They're the same tempo! Oh well...

In conclusion R&R and Fluffhead->2001 take the cake for me amidst another peaks and valleys 2nd set at BGCA. It was a fun evening nonetheless. Btw, that Brett Favre look-alike in the Favre Vikings jersey that nonchalantly walked through the crowd kept tripping me and everybody out all show! I was laughing my ass off every time he walked by!
