Review by saroks5415

saroks5415 Yes, it was a short show...but, there is some really solid stuff. I thought the first set was neat. The Bowie could have gone places. Coming so early in the show, it was cool to see the boys try and warm up with it. They tend to build toward a Bowie to end a set, but I am a huge fan of switching up setlist placement (i.e. Moma Dance, pretty much set in stone, is the second song of first set when I see them play it...SWITCH IT UP lol.) But I thought first set highlights included Gumbo (Mike's bass sounded great in AAA). Wingsuit (Definitely becoming a new favorite of mine...Trey's peaks at the end are powerful) and a very solid Gin.
Second set was interesting for me and my buddy, as we were partying pretty hard second night. Twist>Piper is a great combo, but it felt like they were going through the motions and nothing was catching on. Caspian was good, but typical, "We aren't hitting on anything together, so lets play Prince Caspian" fashion. Still nothing to rave about until Wading. Yes, Wading. I could have been completely out of my gourde, but I thought it sounded great, and I DO NOT like that song. Being a 3.0 fan who has made the mistake of watching Coventry videos, I just always seem to associate it with that time period...bummer, to say the least. But then a raging Antelope is always welcome and then BOOM> R&R!!! Cool.
Meatstick encore brought the giggles, and then it was over and out into the streets of Miami, we went. Second set highlights: Twist, Wading, Antelope>R&R.
Still can't believe I just said Wading is a highlight. But hey, that's the way it goes sometimes, I guess. 4 stars, because I had a blast.
