gravitysrainbow More a reflection than a review:
Looking at this show from the perspective of the long game, two things stood out to me (which could be equally applied both the 2014 Summer and Fall Tours): 1. How hot Trey is these days when he is on (fingers of fire, baby....new carpal tunnel meds maybe?), and 2. How cold Trey is these days when he isn't. Last night's show evidences this literally on a song by song basis. Highlights from the show for me included that Gin closer, Piper, Caspian, and Rock and Roll. Jesus, he sounded liked a rock god during those numbers. The rest of the show, although I really enjoyed, as always, just didn't sound that good. Plus the song selection of the second set speaks for itself. The first set on paper had the makings of greatness. But the Undermind was unfortunately episodic in its greatness. The Bowie was rough, and unenthusiastic. Yarmouth.... groan!!!! But a really hot and unexpected solo. Nice job, Trey! If you are following the arc of this "reflection," you will notice that I am working my way back to the Gin. WOW!!!!! That was a good good time. A really intense high. So all and all, this was definitely no 1/1/11, but good grief Florida, audibly booing the Velvet Sea. Are you serious? You guys who were in on that don't deserve to be at a show if you are going to act like that. That is a waste of both your hard earned cash and the band's precious time. My prediction: Tonite is going to be pure fire to spite all those m-f's. Enjoy.
