I was hoping for Attachments, and they opened with it. Who picked this set list? It was as if the guys were anticipating a lot of people who hadn't seen them before and decided to give them a potpourri- Puppet String, Nemo, Ringo, Higgins, AIT (of course!), Glory, 1348 and Baba O'Reilly? Quite something. And some of the most creative phrasing I've heard from Brendan. Is he getting better? Scary thought... Threatening skies, but not a drop of rain until they left the stage- as if Heaven were on their side...

This was my second of 11 shows so far, and I urge all to listen to it, for musically it is the best show I've seen. A ?Mild Sedative> The Crooked One with what is a truly moving jam; Loose Ends with the best solo technique and phrasing-wide I have ever heard from Jake. Really! Then Tribute to the Spinal Shaft> Resolution> Cemetery Walk> Ocean Billy with an old version Cut the Cable stuck in the middle. At the end of the 2nd set, Much Obliged with another special jam into an inspired Glory. Truly amazing- I listen to it over and over again.
