aybesea Okay, so here I am, on the heels of listening to the soundboard of last night to make certain that what I think is true, is actually true. And... it is... this show is the real deal.

The first set is tight and consistent. It has a super opening trio in Faulty/Moma/Wedge, where they get to the fringes of 1st set goodness. Ya Mar & Martian are rock solid as well. I won't bitch about the rest... they are standard 1st set fare. As I hit halftime, I was thinking a good solid 3.5-4.0 show.

Out of the gate I get the familiar/unfamiliar sound of Corona, and let me say that I am very impressed. It's infectious and prone to grooving, so... let's see more. But then...

It wasn't Simple, it wasn't a good Simple, it wasn't even a great Simple... it was a Simple for the ages! This thing is a goddamned monster!!! If you haven't listened yet, do not pass go... do not collect $200!

Fuck, after that, quite honestly, anything would be fine. But the rest of the show was just as solid. Light... check! S3... double check! Cities... check! These were solid wonderful set 2 worthy versions. Then a huge Slave taboot! Loving Cup was just pure icing.

Folks, this is a serious show. Very, very nice!
