shdavis745 This was show number 10 for me, and what an awesome night to celebrate. My friends and I made it into Worcester later than expected thanks to Massachusetts traffic. One of my buddies and I came up on a pair of floor tickets, which cost more than I'd really wanted to spend, but why the hell not? For whatever reason, floors could only enter through one door on the back of the DCU which we found after 45 minutes of waiting in lines, only to be sent away by security. We finally made it into the venue about halfway through Funky Bitch. The first set was incredible. I felt that the band was connecting with each other better than I'd ever seen before. The Curtain With, MMGAMOIO and Vultures were all new to me and were all well played. That 46 Days though! Man oh man that was genius! We ended the first set satisfied and ready for more. Waves > Carini is an ambient rock odyssey, and set the pace for what was yet to come. The rest of the second set was just amazing, and it's hard pick highlights. It's also worth saying that Kuroda was on fire as well, his lighting seemed to accent what the band was doing in such a perfect way. The four song encore was a real treat as well. Every time the lights would go down, I'd start collecting my things to beat the rush out, but they just kept coming back with more (Very Return of the King if you ask me). Contact and Suzy Greenberg are always fun for me, but the crowning jewell was the best Good Times Bad Times I've ever listened to. I'm a huge ZepHead so it always gets me stoked to hear. We left Worcester with our faces melted and minds blown, stoked for night two. In short I'd really have to say that this is the best show I've seen them play, which multiple people have reminded me I say after EVERY show. Which is true, because that's what keeps bringing me back, but this one is definitely special. Here's to ten more!
