Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw I think many people may have a different opinion of this show than me.

Set 1 is absolutely rock solid from front to back It sounds like they really want it. Carini is short and sweet, Trey nails it! Gibbo takes a dip into some serene waters. BOTT is also flawlessly played IMO. Taste has a nice little extra stretch with some nice tension throughout, which is the point of Taste right? Bug is also extremely solid as the last ones had been. Tube is also great and cohesive. Twist is in a weird slot, end of first set? It likely had to to with them messing with it a little bit. Regardless the jam kicks in quick and into some mellow waters as it builds and builds.

Mikes starts set two. It's pretty straight forward but still good. The segue into Meatstick is also pretty neat and long. Meatstick get's stretched out it's longest up to that point and gets really weird, great version. Weekapaug is absolute fire as usual. Maze is a pretty standard version, but stretched out so who's going to complain about that? Fluffhead is well...Fluffhead. And that's great! CDT is very fast and very high energy. And the usual suspect Frankenstein closes the set.

Another usual suspect Zero is the encore along with some cool A Capella which had slightly died out at this time and must have been fun.

Another note I get from the recording is that this crowd seems very obnoxious all kinds of whistles and I remember hearing what sounds like a powerdrill at one point. What the hell is up with that?

I think this show is super underrated. Yes no big jams that 99' has almost every show but set 1 slays and set 2 isn't to shabby itself.
