Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This is just one of those confused sounding shows. It gives the impression of the guys not really knowing what they want to play or should play. Which is often problematic.

Tweezer feels very off to kick things off it's not until about the 9min park that things slightly come together, but Trey still sounds very off. Trey kind of redeems himself with a fantastic solo section in Theme. Foam gets stretched out slightly and has a cool peak at the end. You can't talk about this set without mentioning the infamous YEM false start, unfortunately the 2nd take isn't much better. I love the George Takai vocal jam though.

The 2nd set starts with a fairly average and meandering BOAF. Wolfman is the highlight of the show. It has a fairly average Wolfman funk jam with a little extra. This whole second set feels confused the Axilla, Twist-> All of these dreams segment is bizarre and not well thought out. I would say the saving grace is Possum to cap the set, but even that is fairly underwhelming.

On paper the encore looks like a super generic Contact > Tweeprise. But the middle of Contact contains a really cohesive funk jam that is quite nice.

Overall a totally forgettable show.
